While LulzSec is Enjoying 211,000+ Twitter Followers, Someone is Watching Over Them
By on June 18th, 2011

LulzSec started out as the self-appointed online vigilance  commission. Now, it has replaced Anon as the next organized hacker group taking down websites. Anonymous suffered a  rift over leadership issues and went MIA. The Anon era might be past but its members and competitors are still out there and the most popular one of them  th3j35t3r is not happy at LulzSec. LulzSec has pissed off almost everyone by now.

You all might remember  th3j35t3r as the guy who was taking down WikiLeaks a few days back. The same  th3j35t3r  is blowing their cover as it can be seen in  this Blogspot blog. He has published their chat logs from inside the IRC channels and has even gone so far as to expose some of those LulzSec members. The blogspot blog in question has entire conversations put up from IRC channels. As you read up the posts, you will numerous find individual profiles at the end of the blog as well with photographs and home addresses.

Clearly, no one finds the LulzSec lulzworthy anymore. They are trying desperately to cover their tracks with obvious methods, like encrypting drives and using Virtual private networks to stay behind closed doors. Let us see how far this level of anonymity works for them.

Another interesting observation in the expose is  Barrett Brown  of the (supposed) members of LulzSec who is a writer at Vanity Fair, Huffington Post and Onion. My understanding is that he is not really a LulzSec member and came into the crossfire when researching on something to write. Maybe he was just watching over the IRC like  th3j35t3r. Whether this is  th3j35t3r or not is well doubted but this blog makes one thing clear. LulzSec is a ruthless group hated by its own kind and pretty much everyone by now.
