LulzSec Hacker Boat Sunk By Another Hacker Group?

The "hacktivist" group called LulzSec has been wreaking havoc on websites and servers across the board over the last several weeks. Ever since the PlayStation Network breach, the group has been actively taking down gaming sites and even government agency sites including the CIA.gov and Senate.gov. They've certainly kept themselves in the headlines and are now drawing ire from other hackers.

Another hacker group called TeaMp0ison claims to have defaced a LulzSec website and left a message warning LulzSec that it had obtained pictures, addresses, passwords, IPs, and phone numbers of LulzSec members and will be releasing all the info in a "TeaMp0ison Issue 2." The message also rants about how LulzSec uses pre-made tools and scripts to attack opponents and therefore do not qualify as real hackers.

However, the message seems to be from one perpetrator who admits he's only 17 years old. It's not clear if this is a personal grudge or if the message is actually representative of the underground hacking community. But it does show that there could be other hacker groups that are irritated by LulzSec's public antics. The slew of attacks have drawn unwanted attention from law enforcement and negativity from gaming sites and other services that some of the hackers themselves like and support.

Below is a transcription of the text from the screenshot above, in case it's too small to read:

BREAKING NEWS: TEH LULZBOAT HAS OFFICALY SANK WITH 100S OF ANON MEMBERS ON BOARD!

No matter how many bots you gather, no matter how much people you lie to, no matter how much pre-made tools you use, you will _NEVER_ represent the real hacking scene, we warned you, we told you we do not make empty threats, we gave u 48hrs to secure your ircs yet u failed to do so, instead u posted hashes from public forums and then claimed you doxed us and laughed at the fact that i was 17years old. stop telling yourself that u are hackers, putting a ip into a irc is NOT hacking nor is using pre-made tools and scripts to grab databases… you do not represent the anti-sec movement, u are not allowed to greet underground groups like zf0, ab, h0n0, el8 like your member “AnonSabu” was doing, you will never be apart of the underground scene, if anyone thinks you are underground and can actually hack they have no idea about what happens in the underground scene. oh and TeaMp0isoN Issue 2 is coming out VERY soon exposing lulzsec members (pictures, addresses, passwords, ips, phone numbers etc). . . . not so anonymous anymore are you? lets hope that you can swim because the lulzboat just got titanic’d…
