Recent developments from the twitterverse:
th3j35t3r release information about Lulzsec’s web server, apparently it had open ports:
LulzSec has gained the ire of many people through the past 50 days. When you target servers of game companies for no practical reason, it’s bound to attract the attention of other savvy hackers. In this case, it was hacker group “TeaMp0isoN”.
A supposed Dutch member of LulzSec had his personal webpage hacked by TeaMp0isoN. The site is down at the moment, but a message was posted before the plugged was pulled:
“Stop telling yourself that u are hackers, putting a ip into a irc is NOT hacking nor is using pre-made tools and scripts to grab databases,” the statement read. “You do not represent the anti-sec movement, u are not allowed to greet underground groups like zf0, ab, h0n0, el8 like your member ‘AnonSabu’ was doing, you will never be apart of the underground scene, if anyone thinks you are underground and can actually hack they have no idea about what happens in the underground scene.”
Threats were made to post personal information of members of LulzSec. This includes names, photos, phone numbers, IP addresses, etc. Essentially, it’s all the information anyone would need to track them down. TeaMp0isoN made the following statement after supposedly hacking LulzSec:
No matter how many bots you gather, no matter how much people you lie to, no matter how much pre-made tools you use, you will NEVER represent the real hacking scene, we warned you, we told you we do not make empty threats, we gave u 48hrs to secure your ircs yet u failed to do so, instead u posted hashes from public forums and then claimed you doxed us and laughed at the fact that i was 17years old. stop telling yourself that u are hackers, putting a ip into a irc is NOT hacking nor is using pre-made tools and scripts to grab databases… you do not represent the anti-sec movement, u are not allowed to greet underground groups like zf0, ab, h0n0, el8 like your member “AnonSabu” was doing, you will never be apart of the underground scene, if anyone thinks you are underground and can actually hack they have no idea about what happens in the underground scene. oh and TeaMp0isoN Issue 2 is coming out VERY soon exposing lulzsec members (pictures, addresses, passwords, ips, phone numbers etc). . . . not so anonymous anymore are you? lets hope that you can swim because the lulzboat just got titanic’d.
It’s hard to tell if statements like this are true, or it’s just some false, internet chest-beating. However, recent developments within LulzSec might lend credence to TeaMp0isoN accomplishing what they stated. It seems LulzSec is “retiring” as it were. The LulzSec name is being abandoned, and the members will go their separate ways, perhaps into another group under another name. The group’s farewell statement mentions a “planned 50 day cruise”, but it’s hard to believe they only wanted to exist for 50 days. The coincidence of being supposedly hacked, and then breaking up shortly after is too hard to ignore. There was even a supposed Monday release planned, as mentioned in their Twitter. Either way, the group has released their last collection of hacked documents which includes things from AOL, the FBI, and personal investigators.
The Lulz Ship has set sail permanently, but there’s always other ships in the harbor.
