Hacking group LulzSec brought down from the inside

The LulzSec saga continues, although it may perhaps be at its end in this bizarre development that reads like something out of a movie. The shadowy organization has reportedly been brought down by the FBI, who have been working with LulzSec’s own leader, Hector Xavier Monsegur, otherwise known as “Sabu”, after the hacker agreed to cooperate having been arrested in mid-2011.

Police investigations into LulzSec and Anonymous result in two more arrests in England

Suddenly the hackers participating with Anonymous and LulzSec aren't so anonymous. Back at the beginning of August, police tracked down the suspected Anonymous leader going by the name Topiary and arrested him. The teen was arrested and was found to have the details of 750,000 people on his computer. That single arrest was just the start of things as the investigation continued into the two hacker groups.

Anonymous and LulzSec Hack US Police Files Nationwide

In an effort to continue their reign of hacking news supremacy, both LulzSec and Anonymous have claimed responsibility for a 10 gigabyte file containing social security numbers, credit card details, and vast amounts of police files including emails and confidentially sent tips on crimes. This information comes from more than 70 so-called "small-town" law enforcement agencies. Both hacking groups say they want to show solidarity with with Topiary and the Anonymous PayPal LOIC defendants as well as others - Topiary being the supposed name of one Jake Davis, a teen suspected of working with LulzSec to illegally hack several institutions.

LulzSec hacker teen bailed: Details of 750,000 found on PC

The teenage LulzSec hacker arrested by British police last week has been released on bail this morning, despite investigations discovering the personal details of 750,000 individuals on computers seized from his home. Jake Davis, who is believed to be LulzSec spokesperson Topiary, was granted bail after the judge took into account his age, clean record and the "considerable shock" of his arrest and the media's reaction to it, The FT reports. Davis appeared at the court in London wearing Neo-style sunglasses and clutching a copy of Free Radicals: the Secret Anarchy of Science.

Anonymous and LulzSec taunt FBI amid NATO and News International leaks

Hacking groups Anonymous and LulzSec have released a taunting message to the FBI, challenging the law enforcement agency in the aftermath of recent arrests of supposed members of the groups. "Your threats to arrest us are meaningless to us as you cannot arrest an idea" the joint statement says. "Any attempt to do so will make your citizens more angry until they will roar in one gigantic choir." Meanwhile, both groups claim to have fresh caches of information, including documents supposedly from NATO.

LulzSec hacks again, posts fake Rupert Murdoch obit to Sun website

LulzSec hacks again, posts fake Rupert Murdoch obit to Sun website

I guess LulzSec couldn't stand the thought to AntiSec getting all the attention and decided to come out of retirement. The LulzSec hacking group has made another hack this time against the website of The Sun where they planted a fake obituary for news mogul Rupert Murdoch. The hack redirected readers to a story saying that Murdoch had been found dead in his garden.

4G LTE iPhone 5 and iPad 3 Hinted in LulzSec Leak

4G LTE iPhone 5 and iPad 3 Hinted in LulzSec Leak

So you remember that End of 50 Days letter the good fellas of LulzSec sent out yesterday? Turns out one of the files they leaked, the AT&T one to be exact, may well align some numbers to point to an AT&T 4G LTE release of both the iPhone 5 and the iPad 3, both of them in August or September of this year, 2011. Sounds pretty raw! What we're seeing here is a bit of older news on how AT&T plans on rolling out tiered pricing for their upcoming LTE rollout. It's the date of this proposed "migration" that has us double-looking.

LulzSec call it quits after 50 days of hacking and release AT&T docs on the way out

LulzSec call it quits after 50 days of hacking and release AT&T docs on the way out

The hacker group known as LulzSec set out on what they call a 50-day cruise. It was more like a 50-day hack fest where the group accessed all sorts of data and took sites offline. The data that the hackers accessed was released to the public for the most part. After the 50 days of hacking the group is now calling it quits. That is probably a good thing, I suspect with all the hacking going on and with some of the sites attacked being US government sites there will be some government-sponsored investigations going on.
