03/06/2012, If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Unfortunately for members of the computer hacking group LulzSec, this particular saying has rubbed them to wrong way simply because one of the top members decided to play turncoat and work for the FBI instead, and this has led to a spate of arrests of the top hierarchy of the LulzSec hacking group across the globe. Hector Xavier Monsegur has been identified to […]
08/09/2011, A couple of days ago, hacking collective Anonymous went ahead and defaced the Syrian Ministry of Defence’s website, leaving a message that supported the residents in Syria who were pro-democracy. I guess the arrest of LulzSec’s alleged leader, Topiary, did not faze Anonymous as they went about business as usual.
08/07/2011, After releasing the details of over 7,000 law enforcement officers last week, it looks like Anonymous is back again, this time with the help of Lulzsec. In their latest Antisec move: the two hacking groups have hacked over 70 law enforcement agencies and stolen 10GB worth of data from their endeavors. As usual, they’ve put the data up for download online. The leak contains hundreds of compromising email spools, personal […]
07/28/2011, Update: The police might have been tricked into apprehending the wrong person – it seems that website LulzSecurityExposed claims Topiary is a 23-year-old Swede. The UK authorities did not comment on the situation as to whether they bagged the right person or not, so we look forward to an update as well. A 19-year old man was picked up by the long arm of the law in the UK, where […]
07/27/2011, As if the heat from the authorities wasn’t already enough, it looks like Anonymous and LulzSec have another adversary to deal with. A hacker who calls himself Jester has claimed responsibility for taking down the websites of two of the most prolific hacker groups in recent history. At this time of writing, both lulzsecurity.com and anonyops.com are inaccessible, though there’s no word on why the sites are offline besides the […]
07/19/2011, We had initially thought that the hacker group LulzSec had decided to hang up their hats and call it a day, as they had publically announced they would do so via their Twitter account. Well it looks like they might be back for just one last hack and this time their target was none other than Rupert Murdoch’s “The Sun” news publication.
07/04/2011, It seems in a Twitter post by Anonymous, they have claimed to have breached one of Apple’s servers and have managed to gain access to private data, which they have posted on the web, and which they claim contains several administrative usernames and passwords. However according to their tweet, it looks like Apple was not their focus, although they could be if they chose to, as they claim to be […]
06/29/2011, We all know that LulzSec decided to call it quits a few days ago and left the world with a final parting gift: a cache of stolen data, emails and more. However according to some folks who downloaded the collection ended up with more than they bargained for – included was a file that many anti-virus scanners flagged as a Trojan horse. Needless to say, people thought this was another […]
06/27/2011, We all know LulzSec have decided to throw in the towel and give up its hacking activities but that doesn’t mean all the groups wrongdoings in the past have been absolved. And unfortunately for them, the authorities have been given a massive tip off on the identities of the hackers. Another hacking group, A-Team, has released into the wild the personal details of the members that make up LulzSec, obviously […]
06/26/2011, Had enough of the entire internet hacking drama that’s been going on recently? Well it looks like its days are finally over, at least for LulzSec. The infamous hacking group that was known for taking down Sony’s servers, the CIA website and releasing confidential documents they stole from the Arizona Department of Public Safety has announced that its days are over.
06/24/2011, After given a warning and being hit by TeaMp0isoN, you would think that LulzSec would’ve ducked out of the spotlight for awhile. But it looks like LulzSec doesn’t care about warnings. Yesterday, the hacking collective published 700 confidential documents that were stolen from the Arizona Department of Public Safety. If you’re wondering why they attacked them, LulzSec claimed it was because of Arizon’s SB1070 –a controversial anti-illegal immigration measure in the […]
06/22/2011, It looks like infamous hacking group LulzSec, has been bested by another hacking group named TeaMp0isoN_, led by a 17-year old hacker. Apparently LulzSec’s recent call for attention in the media has ruffled a number of feathers in the underground hacking “scene”. Out to deliver retribution for drawing attention towards the community, TeaMp0isoN_ hacked the website of an alleged LulzSec team member and defaced it with the following text:
06/21/2011, Only a couple of hours ago LulzSec had tweeted that they had managed to bring down UK’s elite police force, Soca but now it has been reported that thanks to a cooperative effort by both the FBI and Scotland Yard, they have arrested a 19-year old man (or boy?) who is believed to be the ringleader of the LulzSec somewhere in Essex.
06/21/2011, Yesterday the hacker group LulzSec announced that they have teamed up with hacktivists Anonymous to bring down government and banking websites and it looks like they have kept true to their word in a tweet saying “Tango down – soca.gov.uk – in the name of #AntiSec”. For those who are wondering the website in question belongs to the UK’s elite police force, the Serious Organised Crime Agency got taken offline […]
