FBI affiliates hacked by LulzSec

Mischiefcreants, password-reusing 'hat swap mud


By John Leyden • Register




Mischief-making hacking group LulzSec hacked into the systems of an FBI-affiliated public-private partnership organisation, defacing its website and leaking its email database in the process.

Website defacements included mooching messages such as "LET IT FLOW YOU STUPID FBI BATTLESHIPS" and a video clip. Part of the message suggests that LulzSec launched the attack as some sort of response to the Obama administration's plans to make hacking an act of war.

Apart from website meddling there were data losses including the personal info for 180 users at Infragard, a private-public partnership between the FBI and US business that works in cyber-security.

LulzSec tried the passwords exposed by the hack on other locations, allowing it to hack into other systems thanks to some users' re-use of the same passwords.

In particular it claims to have targeted Karim Hijazi, who used his Infragard password for his Gmail account and a corporate account with a white-hat hacking group he runs, called Unveillance. Documents released by LulzSec include purported chatlogs with Hijazi and internal emails.

Unveillance issued a statement claiming that it had been the target of extortion by Lulzsec.

Over the last two weeks, my company, Unveillance, has been the target of a sophisticated group of hackers now identified as "LulzSec". During this two week period, I was personally contacted by several members of this group who made threats against me and my company to try to obtain money as well as to force me into revealing sensitive data about my botnet intelligence that would have put many other businesses, government agencies and individuals at risk of massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

In spite of these threats, I refused to pay off LulzSec or to supply them with access to this sensitive botnet information. Had we agreed to provide this data to them, LulzSec would have been able to grow the size and scope of their DDoS attack and fraud capabilities.


LulzSec said, in its response, that it was playing a sting against Hijazi and only sought to exposed the alleged incompetence and lack of professional standards within Unveillance by stringing it along.

Greetings morons. We're writing in response to your recent press statement, which, while blatantly trying to hide your incompetence, attempts to paint an ill-conceived picture on The Lulz Boat.

To clarify, we were never going to extort anything from you. We were simply going to pressure you into a position where you could be willing to give us money for our silence, and then expose you publicly.

Ironically, despite the fact that you A) claimed that you wouldn't do something like that, and B) foolishly got outsmarted yet again, we'd like to point out something that you did do: attempt to cooperate with mystery hackers in order to radically, and illegally, boost your company from the ground. Karim, founder of Unveillance, attempted from the start to work with us for his own gain, and he even offered us payment for certain "tasks".

These tasks, hardly subtle at this point, were those of a malicious nature; destroying Karim's competitors through insider info and holes Karim would supply us. Karim also wanted us to help track "enemy" botnets and "enemy" botnet trackers. All in return for our silence and mutual gain.


LulzSec shot to prominence last month with a high-profile hack against PBS followed days later by a break-in that yielded 1 million user records and coupon codes at Sony BMG sites and the Sony Pictures Entertainment site.

Lulz warns NHS of sick security

No waiting list for admin passwords


By John Oates • Register


LulzSec, the security collective which claimed credit for hacking Sony, has taken to Twitter to warn the NHS that it stumbled across several admin passwords.

The Department of Health claimed the breach was nothing more serious than "a very small number of website administrators". It said no national systems were hit - given the slow progress of creating such national systems this might not be a surprise.

Lulz published an email sent to the NHS with the relevant passwords blacked out.

It said:

Quote:
We're a somewhat known band of pirate-ninjas that go by LulzSec.

Some time ago, we were traversing the Internets for signs of enemy fleets.

While you aren't considered an enemy - your work is of course brilliant - we did stumble upon several of your admin passwords, which are as follows....

We mean you no harm and only want to help you fix your tech issues. Also, we hope that little girls feasts on the bones of many giving souls. All the best.

Lulz Security


And no, we don't have any idea what "little girls feasts" means either.

At least the breach is not quite as embarrassing as the recent failure by FBI partner Infraguard which was hacked this week.

LulzSec's page is here.

LulzSec hacks US Senate

Bethesda also bashed in latest attack


By John Leyden • Register


Hacker tricksters LulzSec is baiting US lawmakers with its latest attack on the US Senate.

The hacking group posted what security experts Sophos characterised as "basic information on the filesystems, user logins and the Apache web server config files" of the Senate website on Wednesday morning.

The group also posted a directory listing in a post that ends with a brazen taunt to US authorities, referencing proposals by the Obama administration to make hacking critical infrastructure systems an act of war.

Quote:
This is a small, just-for-kicks release of some internal data from Senate.gov - is this an act of war, gentlemen? Problem?


Under existing US computer crime law (specifically the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act) the hack might be punishable upon indictment and conviction by up to five years' imprisonment.

Lulz Security (LulzSec) has emerged from obscurity over recent weeks with attacks against PBS (over its documentary on Wikileaks), Sony and FBI-affiliated security organisations, among others. The group had a busy day on Monday: as well as stirring a potential hornet's nest in the Senate it also leaked potential sensitive data about video gaming outfit Bethesda Softworks, the firm behind Quake and Doom.

The cracktivists posted what appears to be source code and database passwords of Bethesda Softworks, a subsidiary of ZeniMax Media, onto pastern. LulzSec claims to have obtained the information and more after finding holes in Bethesda's systems while running a denial of service attack two months ago.

LulzSec, which claims to be fans of Bethesda, claimed to have data on more than 200,000 registered users of the game Brink. These claims remain unverified.

Quote:
"We're going to release lots of Bethesda/ZeniMax data today - however we might not release their 200,000+ users as we love Call of Cthulhu," the group said via Twitter. "Bethesda, we broke into your site over two months ago. We've had all of your Brink users for weeks. Please fix your junk, thanks! ^_^"


LulzSec said it had resisted the temptation to release data on Brink users so as not to distract Bethesda from work on its forthcoming fantasy epic Skyrim.

The motives of the attack remain unclear, though pure mischief and perhaps hacking bragging rights seem to be part of the mix.

LulzSec hackers claim CIA website shutdown

Image
A screenshot of LulzSec's LulzSec's claim, announced on Twitter, could not immediately be verified

The hacker group Lulz Security has claimed it has brought down the public-facing website of the US Central Intelligence Agency.

The alleged hack on CIA.gov occurred on the same day the group opened a telephone request line so its fans could suggest potential targets.

On its Twitter feed, the group wrote: "Tango down - cia.gov - for the lulz".

The CIA website was inaccessible at times on Wednesday but appeared to be back up on Thursday.

The hack claim could not immediately be verified.

It was unclear if the outage was due to LulzSec's efforts or to the large number of internet users trying to check the site.
'Denial of service'

LulzSec has risen to prominence in recent months by attacking Sony, Nintendo, several US broadcasters, and the public-facing site of the US Senate.

On Wednesday it claimed to have launched denial of service attacks on several websites as a result of opening its "request line", although it gave no details.


Quote:
Lulz Security attacks

May 7: US X Factor contestant database
May 10: Fox.com user passwords
May 15: Database listing locations of UK cash machines
May 23: Sonymusic Japan website
May 30: US broadcaster PBS. Staff logon information
June 2: Sonypictures.com user information
June 3: Infragard website (FBI affiliated organisation)
June 3: Nintendo.com
June 10: Pron.com pornographic website
June 13: Senate.gov - website of US Senate
June 13: Bethesda software website
June 14: EVE Online, League of Legends, The Escapist and others


The claim regarding the CIA.gov website emerged a few hours later. A CIA spokesman told the Associated Press the agency was "looking into" the report.

LulzSec publicised the details of its telephone hotline on its Twitter feed.

Callers to the US number are met with a recorded message, in a heavy French accent, by an individual calling himself Pierre Dubois.

While the 614 area code appears to relate to the state of Ohio, it is unlikely that this is its real location.

Lulz Security said it had used distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) against eight sites suggested by callers.

It also claimed to have hit the websites of gaming magazine The Escapist, and multiplayer games EVE Online and League of Legends.

DDoS attacks typically involve crashing a website by inundating it with requests from computers under the attacker's control.

Protest groups

Little is known about Lulz Security, other than their apparent "hacktivist" motivation.

The organisations and companies that it targets are often portrayed as having acted against the interests of citizens or consumers.

Its high-profile attack on SonyPictures.com exposed the company's ongoing inability to secure users' personal data, LulzSec claimed.

Along with Anonymous, LulzSec has raised the profile of hacker groups as a potential threat to online services.

Hacktivists see their role as staging valid protests in the most high profile way possible, according to Peter Wood, founder of security consultancy First Base.

"The things they are exploiting at the moment are the sort of mistakes that organisations seem to have been making ever since they connected to the internet.

"Finally there are some players out there who are using them as a means to protest. Whether everyone agrees with them is a different question."

Editor’s note: Aaron Crayford is the CEO of Mighty whose main product is a smart real-time communication framework. While in high school was prosecuted by the US government for what the DoD called “The most organized systematic attack the Pentagon has seen” and was banned from touching a computer or talking about the story for a decade. You can follow him @aaroncray.

It’s all over the news Lulzsec thumbs nose at CIA, Member of Anonymous captured in Spain.

Heroes, hackers or douchebags? I’ve seen many takes. Mine goes something like:

FBI agent: “Tell us how you got into the satellite control systems at Lawrence Livermore.”

Kid: “You wanna know, (whisper) you really want to know?”

FBI agent: “yeah tell me”

Kid: “magic”

FBI agent: “this isn’t a fucking game kid!”

Game on! It was 1998 when 20 FBI agents raided my house. The awkward fat kid with working class folks in the corner of your physics class . . . that was me. But what about the LulzSec guys and these Anonymous members? Who are these guys? What the hell are they doing screwing with the cia…THE CIA!? They are revolutionary’s friends. The Washingtons of our times. Their guns are botnets 500gigabit/s strong, and their spies are automated entry system worms and rootkits. They’re taking out injustice one root at a time . . . right?

I knew I wasn’t going to jail and I knew that I had a great excuse for not handing in my chem homework.

Kid: “I was being interrogated by the FBI all night, I didn’t have time”

Teach: “Aaron go back to your seat. That’s the stupidest excuse I’ve ever heard”

(Did I just say I knew I wasn’t going to jail?) That’s the mind frame folks. Criminals never see themselves as criminals simply because of how subjective that word is. Even to this day if you were to ask me what I was doing, I’d focus on the fact that we took down pedophile porn ISP’s, patched thousands of compromised government systems and turned hate monger websites into Happy Hanukkah pages . . . for the lulz. Noob, leet, lulz we used those terms before square bears on Facebook and game networks did and they were just as funny then as they are now.

Image

FBI agent:”Look asshole, you guys leveled Sweden with your bullshit”

Happens sometimes. One group comes to test another group…war…WAR! Right? It’s more like scrabble than devastating economies; barely mentionable in passing the next day. You rooted your friends system, you laugh, and that’s it. It’s hard to understand the impact of what taking down a site like Ebay, Facebook or Sony does. Lulz thinks it’s funny; hell it is pretty funny but the unfortunate fact is at the end of the day workers are hurt and the CEO of Sony still gets in a Maybach and is driven to his mansion. They even call him Sir. Knighthood for someone who strikes at the heart of innovation, at the guy in the garage.



So what is it? What makes these guys do this stuff? They must be evil, they must be huge assholes, they must be geniuses? Maybe. One thing is for certain they understand how to bypass systems of control much better than the techs at Sony. Think of it like this: imagine if, given enough time, you could break into anything or type a command and stop any website in the world from working. What would you do? The hard part of this isn’t figuring out what you would do (in case that’s what you were just doing). I’m not talking about a Harvard dropout patting you on the back and telling you you’re a hard worker because you wrote some php script or you’re in “The Harvard of Silicon Valley” (careful fackers bunnies bite). I’m talking about writing down a piece of code, an exploit no one’s ever seen, on a bar napkin while you’re intoxicated; when you try it later, it compiles and executes perfectly, proving you understand an extremely complicated system better than its creator. The hard part is obtaining that kind of skill and the guys that do never do it with the intention of breaking into places. The application of what you can do with that kind of skill is an after thought. So once you have the skill you hear a story about some innovative smart guy . . .

The guy in the garage. A guy like you;

who reversed engineered a game console . . .

because he bought and owned the game console . . .

and thought he should be able to do with it what he wants . . .

like most normal people would think.

There you go. The company that tries to tear that man down and the ideal of innovation just volunteered for your hell, your wrath. The bully is going down! That’s how they see it. Even though the reality is the FBI or CIA agent that will be tracking you down over the next few months/years doesn’t get paid squat and what drives him is the same thing that drives you; they think what they are doing is justice. The workers that get laid off from the game network because it went down are just 0.1% of the company (up to 10% is acceptable to the guys on Wall Street without much concern . . . considered “leaning out”) and Sir Howard won’t lose a minute of sleep in his big comfortable king sized bed in his mansion on the hill.

What Lulzsec and Anonymous don’t realize is these companies aren’t their enemies. Their exploits are shockingly funny and probably karma but there is a much more difficult system to hack . . . becoming the guy at the head of the board. So when you’re the 40-something-year-old CEO who hears that some kid, some guy in his garage, is tearing your product apart and doing amazing things with it that is hitting your top line revenue, and the VP of Operations is getting the legal team together to discuss your options; you stop the meeting and say “Go find that guy, pay him and lets see what he can do.” That’s a real hack worth touting and it ends with you sleeping in a king-sized bed in a mansion on the hill and few can claim it’s been done before.

Not many, if any, of the people I know from back then made it big in tech. The ones that stayed in security disappeared, working for people I’m too scared to ask about.

So happy hacking. I hope you leverage your skill to your advantage. Stay safe and don’t get caught. If you do and they ask how you did it simply reply, “magic.”

Elite UK police agency website downed by Lulzsec

SOCA left eggfaced by DDoS


By John Oates • Register



The Serious Organised Crime Agency is facing serious embarrassment this morning - it was forced to take its website offline last night after an attack by LulzSec hackers.

The Metropolitan Police is still suffering big computer problems of its own and Soca's website doesn't include operational functions but this is still humiliating for the top cops.

LulzSec told its Twitter followers: "Tango down - soca.gov.uk - in the name of #AntiSec".

The Police confirmed to the BBC that it had been hit by a distributed denial of service attack.

It said: "Soca has chosen to take its website offline to limit the impact of DDoS attack on other clients hosted by our service provider.

"The Soca website is a source of information for the general public which is hosted by an external provider. It is not linked to our operational material or the data we hold." Soca is of course in good company - LulzSec has taken down the FBI, the CIA as well as various gaming companies.

A teenager has been arrested in a joint Scotland Yard and FBI investigation into the hacking of websites.

The 19-year-old man was held during a raid at a house in Wickford, Essex.

On Monday the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) took its website offline after it was attacked by Lulz Security hackers.

Scotland Yard would not confirm the arrest was connected but did say that it followed a series of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

The raid in Essex was a "pre-planned, intelligence-led" operation, it said.The teenager was arrested under the Computer Misuse Act and Fraud Act and is being questioned at a central London police station.

He was arrested by the Metropolitan Police's e-crime unit.

Channel 4 News claimed LulzSec may have succeeded in hacking into the database of the 2011 census, which hold details of every UK citizen who filled out the survey earlier this year.




:ohmy: you mean it's not a disparate band of cyber warriors, it's an oily teenager in his bedroom....

LulzSec and Anonymous Launch Operation AntiSec, Claim Secret Hacking Underway

By DJ Pangburn - deathandtaxesmag.com


LulzSec acknowledges the DDoS attacks are only a technique for public consumption—have they dug deeper? And in other news: AntiSec graffiti is popping up in far-flung places.

Image

Yesterday, LulzSec (Lulz Security) launched a DDoS attack on an FBI partner website (InfraGard), which claimed it pre-emptively shut down its website with foreknowledge of the attack.

LulzSec hinted that more secret things are currently underway in the following tweet, “DDoS is of course our least powerful and most abundant ammunition. Government hacking is taking place right now behind the scenes.” They also tweeted, “We hear our #Anonymous brothers are making progress with #AntiSec, we also have reports of many rogue hacker groups joining in.”

If that is the case, then it is of course interesting to imagine what is occuring (if it’s not simply hot air). Clearly, there is the desire to very publicly fight against state and corporate powers—but is their top level hacking going on against states, banks and corporations? Hacking of the order that would truly make states and multi-national banks and corporations shudder, just as the character Cosmo in “Sneakers” imagined (watch the video below). Indeed, are there hackers with the abilities and ambition of Cosmo—forgetting for a moment that he is fictional?

What is knowable is that it seems Anonymous, LulzSec and WikiLeaks are inspiring hackers to join the fray: those who have not sold out for a government or corporate check.

LulzSec’s declaration of war against states, banks and corporation—which introduced AntiSec—reads:

Quote:
Salutations Lulz Lizards,

As we’re aware, the government and whitehat security terrorists across the world continue to dominate and control our Internet ocean. Sitting pretty on cargo bays full of corrupt booty, they think it’s acceptable to condition and enslave all vessels in sight. Our Lulz Lizard battle fleet is now declaring immediate and unremitting war on the freedom-snatching moderators of 2011.

Welcome to Operation Anti-Security (#AntiSec) – we encourage any vessel, large or small, to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path. We fully endorse the flaunting of the word “AntiSec” on any government website defacement or physical graffiti art. We encourage you to spread the word of AntiSec far and wide, for it will be remembered. To increase efforts, we are now teaming up with the Anonymous collective and all affiliated battleships.

Whether you’re sailing with us or against us, whether you hold past grudges or a burning desire to sink our lone ship, we invite you to join the rebellion. Together we can defend ourselves so that our privacy is not overrun by profiteering gluttons. Your hat can be white, gray or black, your skin and race are not important. If you’re aware of the corruption, expose it now, in the name of Anti-Security.

Top priority is to steal and leak any classified government information, including email spools and documentation. Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments. If they try to censor our progress, we will obliterate the censor with cannonfire anointed with lizard blood.

It’s now or never. Come aboard, we’re expecting you…

History begins today.

Lulz Security


Do the DDoS attacks and hacking play into the hands of power—a means of restricting free information and free speech on the internet? If such attempts were made to censor, would other channels of communication open up on other internets?

Indeed, these are the questions we need to be asking as the cyberwars escalate.

And though this movement toward free information and exposure of government corruption is certainly needed, and might very well help to change things for the better, don’t expect states to simply bend over. There will be a push back, and it will be in those moments when the real meddle will be tested—when a critical mass of hacking will be required as governments attempt to build higher walls of secrecy.

Indeed, we will know that our government has forever crossed into the most purulent form of oligarchy if these attacks are labelled “acts of war”—in which the enemy is no longer foreign aggressors, but our own citizens.

It should be noted that America once fought against a government, a monarchy—that their actions were not welcomed. Also keep in mind that their experiment has been so corrupted that it is unrecognisable.

The question at this point shouldn’t be “Who appointed Anonymous, LulzSec and WikiLeaks the judges?” but why people do not see in them the opportunity to take this country back from bankers, corporations and corrupt politicians. To highlight the dark undercurrent of state and corporate activity that dominates this country, spending $700 billion dollars on defence and hundreds of billions more on bank bail-outs, and we can’t even give healthcare to every last American.

At some point, people will have to choose a side.

Coda: At about 11:30pm Monday night, LulzSec tweeted a link to a San Diego CBS affiliate video which showed AntiSec graffiti, complete with the LulzSec icon’s face. LulzSec’s response to the affiliate video of the AntiSec graffiti?

“It begins.”

So the police have got lulzsec leade..eerrr no wait... nothing. And they're on about extraditing him to the US?! Why? Don't we have courts in Britain any more? :hmm: I'd hate to think America would get it's hands on any of our citizens after what they did to Bradley Manning even though they never found evidence to link him to the leaked information that Wikileaks published.

If they broke the law, charge them in the UK. Wish our government would stop bending over backwards for them. :thumbdown:

In other news... AntiSec has started...

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Mysterious graffiti appearing on the Mission Beach boardwalk belongs to a group protesting computer security practices.

Image

People living near Mission Beach say the unusual "Anti-Sec" graffiti first appeared last week on the boardwalk. It was quickly painted over, but the stenciled words were back Monday morning.

A computer security expert who spoke with News 8 says "Anti-Sec" stands for "Anti-Security Revolution". The organization claims it recently shut down several gamer sites, as well as websites for the CIA and FBI.

According to the group's mission statement, it believes the security industry uses full disclosure to profit and develop scare tactics to manipulate consumers into buying firewalls, then overcharges for products.

The group says it believes in spreading its message through mayhem.

UK man charged with attack that shut down SOCA site

Investigation of Ryan Cleary continues


By Dan Goodin • Register



UK officials have formally accused a 19-year-old man of involvement in Monday's attack on the website of the British Serious Organised Crime Agency and two previous web-based assaults directed at the music industry.

Ryan Cleary was charged with five offenses in all, according to a press release issued Wednesday by the Metropolitan Police. He was arrested Monday night and has remained in police custody pending an investigation into any involvement he had in various high-profile DDoS, or distributed denial-of-service, attacks.

According to police, the Wickford teenager was involved in the DDoS attack on the SOCA website that prompted authorities to temporarily shut it down. The site contained only publicly available information. He also stands accused of participating in similar assaults in October and November against the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) respectively.

Two additional charges accuse him of helping to construct a botnet for the purposes of mounting DDoS attacks and supplying a botnet to assist in the commission of unspecified offenses.

Cleary was arrested by officers from Scotland Yard, but according to The Telegraph, the investigation into his alleged offenses is “being driven by the FBI.”

The LulzSec hacker collective claimed responsibility for taking down the SOCA website. It has also taken credit for several other attacks, including one that briefly disrupted the website for the Central Intelligence Agency. Although it's impossible to substantiate the claims, speculation has run rampant that Cleary was involved in that attack and possibly a much larger list of computer crimes.

Web searches yield a variety of webpages and online forums that make a variety of serious claims about Cleary. Few if any of them can be independently confirmed. He is scheduled to appear at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

Separately, claims from earlier this week that LulzSec stole sensitive UK census data has been labeled a hoax. Which just goes to show that unsubstantiated claims made online can't be taken seriously.

FBI Downs Innocent Websites Looking for LulzSec

By Kevin Parrish - Source : Softpedia


The New York Times reports that the FBI knocked legit websites offline in its attempt to hunt down LulzSec and any affiliated hackers.

According to the report, the FBI seized web servers during a data center raid conducted early Tuesday morning. Owned by Switzerland-based DigitalOne, the server seizure inadvertently took down websites owned by the New York-based Curbed Network, Instapaper and "tens" more.

"After [the] FBI's unprofessional 'work,' we can not restart our own servers, that’s why our Web site is offline and support doesn’t work," said DigitalOne’s chief executive, Sergej Ostroumow in a statement to his customers. He thought that the problem was merely a technical glitch with one of his Reston, Virginia-based servers at first until he was informed by a local that it had been removed completely from the data center.

"Our servers happened to be in with some naughty servers," he said. Ostroumow later added that the FBI agents probably took entire server racks because they mistakenly thought that "one enclosure equals to one server."

Meanwhile, Operation AntiSec continues on as Anonymous and LulzSec wage war against the world's governments, banks and major corporations. On Tuesday the Brazilian branch of LulzSec reportedly took down the Brazilian government's website. Later on LulzSec hinted that it had also penetrated servers of several banks and government institutions.

"Splendid old chap, yes, yes, quite. In other news, we're loading leak bay #1 with stolen goods. #AntiSec," the group bragged on Twitter.

LulzSec dumps hundreds of Arizona Police documents

Border cops' private laundry aired


By Dan Goodin • Register



Lulz Security's string of embarrassing hacks continued as the group released hundreds of internal documents belonging to various Arizona law enforcement agencies, including the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Many of the documents released over BitTorrent are stamped “law enforcement sensitive” and “for official use only,” and the dump of some 700 files contains material from a variety of agencies, including the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Drug Enforcement Agency.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety has reportedly acknowledged that its computer systems were compromised and the department's website had been inaccessible for more than eight hours at time of writing. A post on LulzSec's website, said hackers targeted the agency for its enforcement of a recently enacted Arizona law that makes it a crime for aliens to be in the state without carrying immigration documents and gives police broad power to detain anyone suspected of being in the US illegally.

“We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is arizona,” the post stated. it was headlined with the Spanish words “chinga la migra,” which translates to “fuck the border patrol.”

Among the chestnuts contained in the documents is the Mexican government's refusal to sign an agreement not to monitor US law enforcement officers' radio communications. “The implication is that obviously the Mexican Government intends to do a lot of listening,” the writer of an email stated.

Another leaked document warns about the risks of apprehending suspects carrying iPhones that have an app called Cop Recorder installed. “This can be activated while in a pocket and record everything the officer is saying,” the document states.

LulzSec has made credible claims for several other hacks and web attacks, including those on the PBS television network, Sony's motion picture website (contrary to many media reports, there's no evidence the group was behind a much more devastating attack on Sony's PlayStation Network), the US Senate, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Serious Organised Crime Agency .

A 19-year-old UK man was arrested on Monday and later charged with participating in the denial-of-service attack on the SOCA website.

LulzSec hacking group announces end to cyber attacks

Image
The Lulz Security group has used Twitter to draw further attention to itself

A hacker group that has attacked several high-profile websites over the last two months has announced that it is disbanding.

Lulz Security made its announcement through its Twitter account, giving no reason for its decision.

A statement published on a file-sharing website said that its "planned 50-day cruise has expired".

The group leapt to prominence by carrying out attacks on companies such as Sony and Nintendo.

Broadcasters Fox and PBS, the CIA, and the United States Senate have also been cyber-attacked by the group.

As a parting shot, the group released a selection of documents apparently including confidential material taken from the Arizona police department and US telecoms giant AT&T.

Correspondents say LulzSec's announcement could be a sign that its members are nervous because of recent police investigations, including the arrest of a British man suspected of links to the group, and efforts by rival hackers to expose them.

'Microscopic impact'

Quote:
“Please don't stop - together, united, we can stomp down our common oppressors and imbue ourselves with the power and freedom we deserve”


LulzSec statement

The group's identities remain anonymous and it has not been possible to contact its members directly to confirm its statement.

The statement said that "our crew of six wishes you a happy 2011".

"So with those last thoughts, it's time to say bon voyage," it added.

"Our planned 50 day cruise has expired, and we must now sail into the distance, leaving behind - we hope - inspiration, fear, denial, happiness, approval, disapproval, mockery, embarrassment, thoughtfulness, jealousy, hate, even love. If anything, we hope we had a microscopic impact on someone, somewhere."

But LulzSec urged its supporters to carry on.

"We hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us," the statement said.

"Please don't stop. Together, united, we can stomp down our common oppressors and imbue ourselves with the power and freedom we deserve."


The group had previously told the BBC's Newsnight programme that it wanted to target the "higher ups" who write the rules and "bring them down a few notches".

In an online Q&A, the hacker known as Whirlpool, who described himself as "captain of the Lulz Boat", said that while the group had begun hacking "for laughs" - for which the word "lulz" is cyber-slang - it evolved into "politically motivated ethical hacking".

And in an interview with the Associated Press on Friday, a LulzSec member said the group had at least five gigabytes of "government and law enforcement data" from around the world, which it planned to release in the next three weeks.

Ryan Cleary, 19, from Wickford, Essex, was arrested as part of a Scotland Yard and FBI probe into LulzSec and charged with hacking the website of the UK Serious Organised Crime Agency.

Lulzsec Statement

50 Days of Lulz

Friends around the globe,

We are Lulz Security, and this is our final release, as today marks something meaningful to us. 50 days ago, we set sail with our humble ship on an uneasy and brutal ocean: the Internet. The hate machine, the love machine, the machine powered by many machines. We are all part of it, helping it grow, and helping it grow on us.

For the past 50 days we've been disrupting and exposing corporations, governments, often the general population itself, and quite possibly everything in between, just because we could. All to selflessly entertain others - vanity, fame, recognition, all of these things are shadowed by our desire for that which we all love. The raw, uninterrupted, chaotic thrill of entertainment and anarchy. It's what we all crave, even the seemingly lifeless politicians and emotionless, middle-aged self-titled failures. You are not failures. You have not blown away. You can get what you want and you are worth having it, believe in yourself.

While we are responsible for everything that The Lulz Boat is, we are not tied to this identity permanently. Behind this jolly visage of rainbows and top hats, we are people. People with a preference for music, a preference for food; we have varying taste in clothes and television, we are just like you. Even Hitler and Osama Bin Laden had these unique variations and style, and isn't that interesting to know? The mediocre painter turned supervillain liked cats more than we did.

Again, behind the mask, behind the insanity and mayhem, we truly believe in the AntiSec movement. We believe in it so strongly that we brought it back, much to the dismay of those looking for more anarchic lulz. We hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us. The support we've gathered for it in such a short space of time is truly overwhelming, and not to mention humbling. Please don't stop. Together, united, we can stomp down our common oppressors and imbue ourselves with the power and freedom we deserve.

So with those last thoughts, it's time to say bon voyage. Our planned 50 day cruise has expired, and we must now sail into the distance, leaving behind - we hope - inspiration, fear, denial, happiness, approval, disapproval, mockery, embarrassment, thoughtfulness, jealousy, hate, even love. If anything, we hope we had a microscopic impact on someone, somewhere. Anywhere.

Thank you for sailing with us. The breeze is fresh and the sun is setting, so now we head for the horizon.

Let it flow...

Lulz Security - our crew of six wishes you a happy 2011, and a shout-out to all of our battlefleet members and supporters across the globe

Thanks for the lulz. :tiphat:

Seriously though, their methods aside, I don't think there's any free thinking good hearted person who could object to what went on here. Trying to expose governments and corporations who are either guilty of breaking the law, of putting our personal information and banking details at risk, had something to hide or were just coming down far too heavily on ordinary people.

What's not to like? :D Or am I just being an old hippy? :p

Thanks for caring and happy sailing.

Lulzsec commandeered PBS’s website in retaliation for their recent Frontline broadcast, ”Wikisecrets,” which criticized Wikileaks, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning.

And it did portray them in an unfair light, at least imho, it was all a bit scary music and unsubstantiated slurs a lot of the time. Your basic propaganda. It looked made to make them look evil rather than tell any kind of true, revealing story about it.

Fair enough, that's the only one that struck me as weird as PBS is mostly kids shows, Sesame Street and the like
