Open the flood gates to hundreds of others to stage similar attacks/spread the resources of those trying to combat all of this while they distance themselves from the situation.

    I don't know the specifics on the UK census, but if it's counterpart here in Canada was compromised - it contains your Social Security/every piece of information anyone wanting to steal your identity could possibly need.

    This theft was allegedly done by someone heeding the Anti-Sec call and not directly involved with the group... and I'd say is a much larger threat than anything Lulz has done thus far.

    In the words of ShadowDXS on the previous page, their point now and always has been "we can do it, and did do it, now what are you going to do to stop us."
    Yeah, although im not sure what ahppedn about the census, becasue channel 4 said soemone stole all the info, then lulzsec said it wasnt them, but whoever did it if it was in the name of antisec well done.

    But no1 has claimed it as far as i'm aware, and I havnt heard any concrete evidene that it was stolen, they said they were running chekcs yesterday but we will have to see.

    The scary thing is, if it was stolen, whoever has it doesnt seem to want to release it. Which means they could be going through it all right at this second.

    Then again, it could be leaked in a few days, I think i remember seeing anon or lulzsec asying they were preparing a big leak or soemthing like that

    Guy making the claim to fame and flyin the Lulz banner.

    Signs it Cap'n Pierre "Lulz" Dubois which isn't a pseudonym I believe anyone in the Lulz crew has used thus far.
    That said, they can claim they have nothing to do it with it all they want - but it's complete hypocrisy.

    The AntiSec Manifesto explicitly states that:

    "Welcome to Operation Anti-Security (#AntiSec) - we encourage any vessel, large or small, to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path. We fully endorse the flaunting of the word "AntiSec" on any government website defacement or physical graffiti art. We encourage you to spread the word of AntiSec far and wide, for it will be remembered. To increase efforts, we are now teaming up with the Anonymous collective and all affiliated battleships.

    Top priority is to steal and leak any classified government information, including email spools and documentation. Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments. If they try to censor our progress, we will obliterate the censor with cannonfire anointed with lizard blood."

    So yeah, it most likely wasn't LulzSec. But they were definitely the catalyst.

    Sorry for reporting this point for folks following the threat in Off-Topic/Computer.

    Edit: Looks like he's already sharing the data via torrents too.

    "Mastermind"? Bah. Funniest thing I've read in months. Poor Ryan. IRC host, and what happened with HBGary was bloody stupid. Hate to see him take the fall for Lulzsec, though. That's just dumb. Sabu's still got it coming, no doubt in my mind.

    Especially if Teamp0ison is involved now.

    It isnt for the humor, it used to be, but now lulzsec and anonymous have joined forces they are trying to collect information on corrupt government services and big corperations.
    Btw, the 19 year old isnt the ring leader, he was jsut hosting an IRC server for them.


    oh right - I just posted what I'd heard, and now I've stopped reading about it cus it was annoying me too much :P
    Not too sure what to have a signature...

    Also - anyone know the backstory to the bolded/underlined part?
    Something Ryan alluded to after HBGary and the splintering of Lulzsec. HBGary didn't sit well with the better part of Anon. Not with how it played out, the aftermath, the "interviews" anything. It left a gross taste in your mouth, and gave a person the feeling of needing to take a shower.

    People like Sabu and Topiary were calling the shots to Anonymous' operations, and white hats or not, a few people figured out what the hell was going on behind the scenes. 2600's a hangout for a bunch of the other end of the spectrum (Pro-Sec, if you will, but it's existed long before AntiSec. Also a favorite hangout of Jester's) And they're generally good at putting 2&2 together, simply because they don't usually get involved in Anon. It's like watching your neighbor invite her gardener into her house. Can't prove anything, don't really care to even if you could, but you've got an idea.

    Gotcha, thanks.

    But that's something I don't think we'll ever know until he gets compromised or someone else develops something that works similar.

    XerXeS is still a DoS though, nothing more, nothing less. His "Hacktivist for good" involved DoSing islamic websites that may or may not be jihadist (because terrorists only recruit and plan over the internet, right?), and the second that XerXeS focuses on another target, the site in question would go up again anyways.

    Then you factor in him targetting WikiLeaks because it "endangers american troops"... 'kay. Not to mention his twitter getting compromised the other night. The person in question tried to pass off as him in IRC, and despite being unable to use the registered name J35T3R has, tried to fool people as "Jester" and would "auth" that it was him by posting random words on twitter.
    He was eventually called on it, and went silent as people figured out what the hell was going on "auth your main account, or your wordpress" and of course fake jester couldn't.

    But then real jester deletes all the tweets, he tries to BS it off "nope, no hack here, just testing for info" (flipping through an IRC log of what was going on at the time was a little humorous). Guy's got an ego, and thinks he's bigger than he is, just like every other e-hero.

    But of course, censorship is totally the American way, so he needs to have his followers hanging off his every word. He's one of the good guys!.... Yeah, I'll pass, thanks. I don't need to DoX him, I'd like him to just go away.

    Hahaha, fact! Following twitter feeds/random developments - nothing was made more blatantly obvious than that.

    Anyway, b14ck4dd3r tweeted something interesting this morning courtesy of Richard Roma.

    http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=iVujX4TR

    The document gives a loose background on Anonymous/other members that founded LulzSec and supposedly has dox for almost everyone involved.
    Seen enough "facts" in the last week to approach this with caution, but it's possible that the majority of the group will be rounded up and vanned in the next few weeks if the document holds water.

    Any idea who the A-Team is?

    Isn't the "American Way" about Freedom of speech, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and equality?

    I wasn't talking smack against the American way. I was talking smack against j35t3r who thinks he's acting in America's best interests by going against the constitution and shutting down Westboro Baptist Church. Yes they are bad people, who should be punched in the face. But, the difference is: They have the right to say what they do, whether it's offensive or not.

    I won't lie and say I've read this whole post as I've not... But I can say for 100% certain that one guy being nicked is further than Lulzsec being busted as you could ever imagine. Firstly, he merely hosted their IRC servers, secondly, Lulzsec is probably government backed. I.E government funded and they're the (kingpin) of it, heard rumours that they want to censor a lot of the internet.. (Post on TheSun.co.uk backs this up, they want to censor p0rn). Thirdly, and most importantly, they always need a fall guy. Take JFK and loads of other stuff for example. Chances are this guy is innocent and a tad bit retarded so he's the perfect candidate to be shipped off to USA and made an example of. Can't say for certain but all these hacking groups are probably government funded. At least the Western ones. Can't speak for China etc. Edit: No idea why it posted as a well of text as I made it in paragraphs. Apologies. Would also like to point out that hosting IRC and (PLANNING) to make a botnet is not a crime.

    My post is kinda aggressive but these guys got to big headed with the boasting on twitter etc I'm glad they got busted.
    I don't know about you but I hope it's more than himself he is crying to sleep.

    He's just a patsy though. Oh well, don't care about the hacker crap anyway, they'll get caught eventually.

    I felt bad for Ryan, if only for a minute. Then I remembered all the crap he tried doing awhile back, and just laughed. I feel kinda bad that I could laugh at another person getting arrested, but the drama? Oh, so good. So so good.

    That said, Ryan doesn't have much. If he's hammered with every little tiny thing, it's a) to set an example out of him for the rest of the wannabe-hacker-world, and b) to tell the rest of the western world: "We've got someone, we're not completely incompetent!" and hoping that they all can rest easier.
