LulzSec Hackers Retiring? Group Makes Their “Final Release”

A PasteBin post has popped up, and it claims to be from the now notorious hacking group LulzSec. Within the post is a letter that claims to be the final note from the LulzSec “ship.”

LulzSec, the hacker group which first came to light some 50 days ago, has made big news in the internet and technology world.Some of their hack targets include Sony Pictures, Bethesda Games, and even the Central  Intelligence  Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Many have tried to attach themselves or others to the group. They have spawned groups who are claiming to be offsets of their main group. Some have even gone as far to try and connect the 6 person group to the infamous group known as Anonymous.

The supposed ‘final release’ from LulzSec says that the team was a mere 6 members. They take no claim for any new hacks in the notice. What it does contain is a farewell letter to the world. They continue to say that they did everything for laughs.

If you want to read the letter, then take a look at it here. Their twitter account holds tweets that seem to mean the end, and they say that they are not planning to renew their hosting on their website. If that comes true, then we will know they are truly gone. Until that day arrives, we can only hold our breath and wait.

LulzSec Does It Again. Sony Pictures’ Website Hacked

The LulzSec group (LulzSecurity) has done it again. They have hacked into Sony Pictures’ website, gaining access to over 1 million user account information, including passwords and email addresses.

Lulzsec reported on their website,

We recently broke into and compromised over 1,000,000 users’ personal information, including passwords, email addresses, home addresses, dates of birth, and all Sony opt-in data associated with their accounts. Among other things, we also compromised all admin details of Sony Pictures (including passwords) along with 75,000 “music codes” and 3.5 million “music coupons”.

Like the  SonyBMG hack (done by the same group), was hacked by performing a SQL injection.

It is surprising to know that all the data collected was unencrypted. The hackers state that, “every bit of data we took wasn’t encrypted. Sony stored  over 1,000,000 passwords of its customers in plaintext, which means it’s just  a matter of taking it. This is disgraceful and insecure: they were asking for it”

Rough times ahead for Sony as the LulzSec group stated that “this is the Beginning of the End for Sony”.  Possibly  Sony could face such more attacks in future.
