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 ...
While these hackers are clearly skilled enough to keep themselves highly anonymous online, likely through a massive system of BotNets or global VPNs, they do not have the power to have an accessible telephone line, either digital or physical, that the Feds could not touch. The notion of an informal, disorganized hacking group being able to outwit the entire Federal Government is a bit of a leap for me to take at this point. Logical problems aside, the timing of these hacks is far too convenient for those in Washington seeking to take full control over the internet. Similarly, the providence of the LulzSecurity group, and their website, is questionable. In a PasteBin posted 11 days ago, it was revealed that the owner of the LulzSec domain was Adrian Lamo, the man supposedly responsible for outing Bradley Manning.
