"They probably also got user names and passwords," he said.

The group has also hit web sites owned by Sony Corp. It has also claimed responsibility for defacing the Public Broadcasting Service network websites, and for posting on Monday data from PBS servers to protest a "Front Line" documentary about WikiLeaks.

It has also claimed credit for breaking into a Fox.com website and publishing data about contestants for the upcoming Fox TV talent show, "X Factor." Fox is a unit of News Corp.

Looks like its hunting season across the net. The group called Lulz Security im (insert lol emo here)

Enjoy the internet as you know it now.

be worried.

all the hacking that has been going on lately while alot of people are claiming its a good thing

the reality of it that it isnt.

alot of idiots and copycats and the end result is a clamp down on the internet and regulating it.

every day its more bad news and people are not looking at the larger picture.

and that is the us become just like china with its regualtion and censorship of the net

the ultimate form of freedom of speech and expression.

The attack originated from deep within the headquarters of Langley, VA..... Through several impenetrable, untraceable, and secure proxies.

In my opinion, of course.

This is exactly why I believe Anonymous is a CIA operation, like Al Qaeda.

I would hate for that to be the outcome (restricted access to internet), but that is the direction we are heading in if this continues. Sony dropped its internet service for well over a month after anonymous, effecting millions of customers....
what happens when that number becomes billions, and our every move is that much more scrutinized!?!?

running a psyop agianst america what better way to win a war than to control the flow of information or lack of it.

create a boogeyman such as annon or the cia the usual suspects get the blame and you miss the real culprits.

Remember what the loving person Mr. Murdoch said regarding the internet...seem's like its all been agreed and its only a matter of not, if or how, but when, i say early to mid 2012. All networks will be connecting to one bad ass server and from there you will be allowed to connect and surf.

Get ready, eventually a bureaucratic infrastructure very similar to the FCC will be given complete control over the Internet. And it will be things like this that make it possible.

You will have an authenticated internet ID, no ways around it.

You will receive controlled and filtered content, regulated content.

You will have very limited interactive abilities.

Everything you do online will be logged and recorded.

Among many other good things, that will make the internet secure and safe for everyone.

All that is missing is an atm like card that you would need to insert into a box and your allowed to connect but it will only drive your request to the beast server and from there you can do your www searches and post away. Oh yes like the iphone and apple assured everyone, no we do not track you.

Im really surprised it wasn't directly blamed on the Anon boogie man. They were blamed for hitting Sony but this group seems to be taking credit for it as Anon said they were not involved.

This is interesting enough as already mentioned above by a member



"We don't like the U.S. government very much," Lulz Security said at the top of their release. "This is a small, just-for-kicks release of some internal data from Senate.gov - is this an act of war, gentlemen? Problem?"

The comment refers to reports that the military had decided that it could respond to cyber attacks from foreign countries with traditional military force.

Senate staffers asked about the hack were unaware of it.

"They (Lulz) certainly demonstrated that they were in and they found the file server," said Stewart Baker, a former cyber official at the Department of Homeland Security.

I wouldn't be too worried about it. What will end up happening if the government regulates it is the same thing that has happened decade after decade when the government regulates something. The people will create their own private internet and find a way to link up. If not a private internet with heavy encryption over radio frequency or even better "antiquated lines" is the perfect staging for an uprising.

Personally, I think the best hackers belong to the civilian side of things still. I hope for the sake of freedom that always remains true. I don't necessarily support what some groups are doing, but I think we're all tired of oppressive governments. Are you listening John Conner?????

The very best hackers, and crackers work for the CIA.

The next level down under "best" are all now working for the many companies that sell antivirus/spyware/malware personal info security etc.

In either case, these people are all doing very well for themselves financially.

Everyone else are just wannabes.
