Another excellent reason to use varying passwords. Citizens of ATS may want to check if their email is listed in their release and make sure they're secure:

LulzSec Twitter message

You know, I do hate to resort to such a cliche on the internet, but really?

LulzSec, you are why we can't have nice things.

On another note, I really wish people would stop using simple passwords. The number of easily guessed or brute forced passwords on that list is mind-boggling, and I hope that they don't reuse those same passwords on things that they need to protect.

Ahhh don't worry my passwords can be very hard to remember so brute force wouldn't work

As for the op: can you list the email list here please? Twitter was having issues in my place

I'm not the OP, but I'm not going to post the list here, and I'd be willing to say others shouldn't either. Privacy concerns aside, it's a massive list and I don't feel like turning this topic into five minutes of scrolling down.

Really?

Man I just dont go for it.

I mean, I've used laramy99 for so long its not funny, I will never forget laramy OR agent 99 from get smart, and NEVER once in my life has anyone considered me worthy of hacking.

I mean how hard is it, login:badw0lf pass:laramy99.

it's just too easy and no one does it.

I think all these hackers are a hoax.

Probably NOT a good idea to post or even look at such things. The legalities(privacy laws) of this are something to take into consideration. Just a thought....

The more I read the posts on his twitter, the more I get the feeling it's Charlie Sheen writing these messages. Has Charlie Sheen made a puppet master out of himself with some computer hackers in his large fan base? Hmm.

This link says a lot of passwords are writer related as well as one being "writespace" and they are theorizing that it came from writesrpace.com. This is not confirmed but if they are targeting a writers forum then this is most likely a false flag. It seems typical they would target people's private emails to bring in cybersecurity. Why would any self respecting anti-government hacker target writers?

Personally I can not see the point of releasing peoples emails and passwords since all it will do is alienate the average user who might become concerned their personal details might be released on the net.

Because LulzSec isn't anti-government. They're (he, whatever) doing this simply because they can, and it's viewed as funny. Unfortunately for the rest of us, while they have their fun, they and people like them are going to just pile on the evidence and support for restricting and destroying what I personally think to be one of the greatest inventions of mankind.

Them's the breaks, I guess.

Went to the link and got this message:

The file you requested has been removed from MediaFire for a violation of our Terms of Service or our Acceptable Use Policy.

Probably a good thing...

My wife's Yahoo account was hacked within the last week, twice, and used to send out malicious 'gifts' to everyone on her contact list. We DO use alphanumeric passwords with upper and lower with randomly spaced numbers thrown into it. Weak passwords weren't the issue in her case, so back to the drawing boards on that. The site that had this list removed it, unfortunately. The whole world who wanted to see it for negative purposes, already has it. I really wish they'd make this available to everyone with AT LEAST the email addresses. Passwords aren't necessary, but it would really help to see if our Email hack issues of late are a result of this or another mass dump like it.

Did this nut said anything about Skype so far? That I am deeply more concerned since I have sensitve info there.

What site did they get the information from? Want to know if it's one I'm registered on.

Think it's time to change all my passwords but when you've registered on hundreds of sites over the years it seems like too much of a mission ...

I've got a copy of the file. I get LulzSec's Tweets directly to my phone so at 6 AM when I saw this I downloaded that bad boy to make sure nobody I knew was on it.

I might make a Google Docs spreadsheet of just the emails after work and post it here, if someone doesn't beat me to it.

Make sure your email and banking passwords are different than the ones you use for ATS and other random logins.
