LulzSec Posts Fake Article Claiming Murdoch’s Death

I guess LulzSec never really resigned, and the whole thing was just a way to engage in a cooldown period and get the FBI off their backs (at least a little bit). Then again, members of LulzSec are known to go rogue and just do their own thing.

Rather than simply taking down a website, they decided to post a fake Times newspaper page that masqueraded as the Sun. Following the attack, the hackers tweeted “We have joy we have fun we will mess up Murdoch’s Sun: http://t.co/JArvwg1 | Hi Rupert! Have fun tomorrow at the Parliament! #AntiSec”

Anonymous Plans Largest Attack In Four Years

And just when we thought we were done with the Anonymous hacks, at least when they posted an official “letter of resignation” we had thought so, yet the hacks continue on. This time, Anonymous has threatened to attack the UK judiciary system and Metropolitan Police.

The rogue group calls its planned attack the “biggest day ever”. According to various sources, the attack will occur tomorrow, on Tuesday and will be massive.

‘Teampoison’ Threatens To Reveal LulzSec Identities

A hacking group in the Netherlands, dubbed teaMp0ison threatens to publish photos, phone numbers, and addresses of LulzSec members in order to give them a taste of their own medicine. The ‘medicine’ refers to what LulzSec did to some of its own members after learning some members went rogue and leaked log files to officials.

Not only does teaMp0ison question the methods of LulzSec but one of the members was also ridiculed by a member of LulzSec and is looking to get revenge.

Police Arrest Teen From Lulz Security

UK Police arrested a 19 year old yesterday involved in the anonymous hacking group, LulzSecurity. The boy was caught after performing a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack. The Metropolitan Police Central e-Crime Unit said the boy was detained for attacks against a number of International business and intelligence agencies.

The arrest was carried out through a pre-planned, intelligence led operation, according to authorities. The hacking group took credit for attacks against SOCA (Serious Organized Crime Agency), when they tweeted “Tango down — soca.gov.uk –in the name of #AntiSec.”

Xbox Live Hacked- 60,000+ Accounts Leaked

The name you all should know by now, LulzSec, has just hacked Xbox Live and has exposed over 60,000 Xbox Live gamertags, passwords, and even PayPal information. The information was taken down from forums multiple times, but it keeps getting posted.

If you use Xbox Live or Paypal, I recommend changing your password on both platforms, as well as your bank account, immediately. World Of Warcraft usernames and passwords were also stolen.

Anonymous Hackers Demand Federal Reserve Chair To Resign

If you’ve kept up with news, you’ll know that despite the arrests made towards the Anonymous Hacking group, they’ve successfully hacked many websites, from Sony databases, to Nintendo, to PBS, from America to India, they have proven their skills.

After seeing the type of damage the Anonymous Hacking group is capable of with the tragic Sony attacks, the Federal Reserve has good reason the be worried. The group of hackers request that Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve’s chairman, step down.

Anonymous Hacks Indian Army Website, Then Reverses It

Members of the Anonymous Hacking group hacked the Indian army website yesterday and took it down for an hour before bringing it back online. On Anonymous’ fan page on Facebook, many criticisms were received from Indian people, which prompted the “unhack” of the military website.

Anonymous then said that they would only target only corrupt politicians and reassured that no data was lost or stolen from the attack. Anonymous claimed that they wanted to send a message about corruption.

Members Of Anonymous Hacking Group, Arrested

Well, what do you know? Three suspected members of the Anonymous Hacking group were arrested today in Spain. The arrests were made in Barcelona, Valencia, and Almeria. For those who may have forgotten, the Anonymous hacking group is responsible for the attacks on Sony, Spanish banks, and possibly other attacks.

The arrests were actually as part of an investigation that had begun in October 2010. It looks like some of the attacks made by members of the group used a web-based tool called Loic to bombard the target sites with data. Furthermore, Paypal, Mastercard, and Amazon were each targeted using this tool.

Sony’s Last Words Before Court Hearing

CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Kazuo Hirai offered an explanation for the Sony attacks less than a week before Sony’s June 2nd court date. Hirai undoubtedly pins the attacks to the Anonymous group who made a number of threats against Sony, immediately after Sony decided to pursue George Hotz for teaching others how to pirate. Let me also remind you that a file was found deep in Sony’s network that carried the slogan of the Anonymous group, “We are Legion” and the file was called “Anonymous.” Assuming Anonymous isn’t being framed by some rival hacking group (if there is one), all fingers point to them.
