I don't think they said where they got this information. Someone on Reddit said a porn site but that hack is old news now, so I'm not sure.

They've got a huge botnet so perhaps these emails and passwords came from having control over these people's machines?

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.


If you could that would be great.

This is another reason to not look to these people as some kind of hactivist group folk heroes. They are criminals and they should be imprisoned.

If they manage to get into my bank account, then all I can say is good luck getting any cash out of it - there's naff all in there except a red overdraft


They can have that if they want.

Which one's exactly?

All of them or just the one's that you don't agree with. Some would say the same about soldiers. You've got a soldier in your avatar.

They commit war-crimes, thus on your logic you should be arrested and jailed

They never claimed to be activists... Their purpose is right there in the name: Lulz.

Anonymous is Batman. LulzSec is Joker. Some people just want to watch the world burn. Even though it's at someone's expense, I rather enjoy seeing the chaos and watching what happens.

Exactly. Some people just don't bother researching and are quick to jump to assumptions.

/sigh

Yeah...It's not a matter of disagreeing. It's a matter of law.

They're hacking people's accounts for the "lulz". They are criminals. This group isn't Anon. They are different and they are wantonly destructive.

After that last article about 1 in 4 hackers being an undercover agent/CI, these types of attacks are at least partially fueled by a government source.

Aaah I see. Forgive me then, I was under the impression you though these guys were representing other hackers and hacktivists.

I apologise for my tone with you

They may have appeared that way when they were attacking Sony and the Senate so it's understandable why some would think that. However, some people are idiots.

How would hacking Sony accounts of individuals using their gaming networks make people think they are some kind of heroes?

I understand the Senate(Though those are the people that want to restrict the internet...So...)

Because Sony has a reputation of being bunch of ass-hats (unless you own a PS3). The fact that they were storing private information in plain-text didn't help either.

Gizmodo has something that will let you check if your information was compromised by Lulz:
gizmodo.com...

While Lulz sec certainly arn't hactivists or morally good they haven't directly shown themselves to be evil yet, they seem to only want to spread chaos for they're own amusement.
I don't condone they're actions but until they commit a serious and intentionally nasty crime, I'm kinda inclined to sit back and enjoy the show.

Brentnauer's analogy of anon = Batman and Lulz sec = Joker was brilliant, although were it does fall short is Lulzsec arn't bombing and butchering in the streets, they're taking people and organisations that are overconfident of they're own security and making fools of them.

Yahoo is notoriously easy to hack, but you may want to make sure you don't have a trojan running in the background of one of your PCs.

What does that mean? Ass-hats? This needs definition because being an ass-hat is not a legitimate reason to steal innocent people's information.

What legitimate reason do these hackers have for compromising the information of INDIVIDUALS. So, whatever Sony does that is disagreeable makes their customers legitimate targets?
