A rival hacking group claims to have defaced a site operated by LulzSec today. How embarrassing. We imagine for 1337 h4xx0rs this is sort of like having your mom drop you off at the high school dance.
A group calling itself, um, TeaMp0isoN_, hacked a website operated by a fellow named Sven Slootweg whom it claims is a member of LulzSec. The rivals defaced his site with a poorly-worded message that seems to have been written by someone huffing ether, and (worse) embedded an Enya song. Or maybe it's Celine Dion. Either way, it auto-starts and is horrible. You can view a mirror here.
The group, er, TeaMp0isoN_, which apparently consists of two people named, well, TriCk aka Saywhat? & iN^SaNe seems to be chuffed because LulzSed doesn't represent the real underground hacking scene. Which I totally get! I'm pretty sure it's sort of like how I wore a Minor Threat T-shirt to the mall with L.L. Bean Bluchers when I was in high school and got beat up by skinheads. Here's the text:
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
But not so fast there, um, iN^SaNe and TriCk aka Saywhat? (if those even are your real names)! Good old Sven Swootleg has his site back up and running, and posted the following "notice to the press," which I take to mean us:
Notice to press: This website was compromised through exploiting a plugin in an outdated Wordpress setup, uploading a shell, and replacing the index page. I am not a member of Lulzsec (a statement I have made several times before in various places), noone "hacked the server" (this has been verified by the hosting company, as this website is on shared hosting) and this was definitely not an "elite hack". I am not available for further comments to press.
So there you have it. Or you don't. It's not like anyone with any sense would admit to being a member of LulzSec at this point. But either way, Hackers are to 2011 what FlashMobs were to 2008. They've become so commonplace that you just about don't even notice them anymore. Change your passwords, etc. etc.
