LulzSec has made mention of disbandment, but unfortunately there is no real disbandment of hackers once united. There is only separation until they unite again.
These hackers have to stop. They do more bad than good and should stop hiding behind a computer.
they're not just attacking Sony but millions of people, and that's just damn stupid
Please, what's there f**king point? The only thing I have to say to these guys is f**k off, if your bored, get a job, you wastes of human beings. Edit: What happened to Anonymous? I hope they were caught.
@Electroshocked What do you mean "what happened to Anon"? "They" can't be caught. Anon isn't a group of people. It's everyone. They have different operations. I am Anon. You can be Anon. There is no specific group of people. Do some research before you comment.
@Liefx - You seem to be buying into Anon's bs. I'll tell you one thing, I for one am definitely not Anon. Anonymous can be caught, it is a group of people, they've just been good at covering up their tracks. You talk about them as if they represent the entire world, they do not. The guy who was arrested in the UK was part of Anon, so there goes you theory of everyone they can't be caught.
@Gaffy You're anonymous right now. Unless you were posting using your real name, you're anonymous. Deal with it.
WTF? They're not messing with Sony. They're disrupting gaming for millions of people! Anyone out there still defending these idiots?
@zombieninjapanda-no he isn't anonymous. Everyone who doesn't take steps to BE anon on the internet remains easily identifiable. Sure, you can take steps to stay anon but unless you do it's a piece of piss to trace an IP-so it's just the same as irl where you'd have to take steps to remain anonymous, wear a fekkin disguise or hide behind proxies or VNS whatever. Computers generally need certain affirmations to work for you for Christ'ssake so, first off, you have to get around that. The most ironic thing about the whole Anitsec movement as I see it is these groups that want the limelight are risking messing it up for those who, though I totally go against their philosophy in EVERY possible way, at least do it with a bit of thought and avoid all media attention possible. Laughing about costing companies money anbd hacking government files is only going to result in ALL our freedoms being reduced and groups with as little sense as Anon or Lulzsec are bringing big brother eer closer AND providing the security industry they claim to hate more work than it ever dreamed of.They couldn'tr, ebven if they tried, make it any easier for the security people to make a fortune AND tell everyone that they're needed and once a Govt decides they had enough(and after Wikileaks you imagine the US and UK aren't wanting to put a dampener on the net!?)of this you just watch how much crapwe have to give them before we are ever allowed online again. This won't end well for regular net users or the hackers. If a government thinks this is costing too much or reaches the point where they think Joe Blow will ACCEPT more tight security from day one they will pounce-and there's also more money to be made for them in doing it so why make it easy for the governemntsd to push itr through? For lulz? Jesus.
@Liefx Anonymous is a group, with a bunch of followers that believe there bullshit, good for you for believing there bullshit to, I bet your one of them and thanks for proving my point gaffyh.
@Mastiff Do you see his first and last name advertised on N4g? No? He's anonymous. UMAD? You people don't seem to understand the term anonymous. Especially in the context it's being used here.
PSN is a definite future target.
WHY??? JUST WHY???? hav'nt you HACKERS disruped PSN enough.
I must admit that I normally only follow gaming news on rare occasions, but Blackkat Security is no joke. I do happen to follow underground hacker forums frequently. What I have heard from very notable hacker groups about Blackkat is some pretty intense stuff. LulzSec may be jumping out of their element into a shark tank.
Damn hackers. They think they're cool and that their some kind of vigilante. But no their not. Their total douchebags.
Some are good. Lulsec aren't. They are douchebags who are bored. Some hacking/cracking can be good. It let's companies find their weaknesses and fix them.
This is very true.
Here is some pretty shocking info on LulzSec members posted by other hackers. It's supposed to be true. Either way it's worth reading: http://pastebin.com/iVujX4T...
These guys deserve to be caught and taken to PRISON!
the thing about kids, sometimes they keep touching the stove not realising their going to get burned. These kids need to get a life now, I blame the playground bullys all around the world for this. They get beat up, looked down on, laughed at and then try to ruin everyones lives by any means possible. Maybe all they need is a hug? *takes step back* ...Warprincess, go take one for the team...
lol probably. Just take them out to a strip club for a night, they'll be all good after that.
Damn kids and their trends. That ****ing Geohotz needs to be punch in the face for setting this fad. Apparently, a lot of basement dwellers **** wants to follow his lead and get recognized and be known to the world.
Think hackers have been around way before Geohotz, he problem was his EGO. still not the first nor the last hacker .
I just recently found LulzSec and am happy to support them! They give us all great laughs and help us too. They just exposed two hackers too Blackhat's. They also released some information proving that some CEO's are corrupt.
I'm getting sick of these hackers.
Yeah, any chance of not posting what hackers are doing please. Your giving them the attention they crave. When they actually attack the PS3 instead of just talking about it, then approve it.
Cool. Thanks guy for ruining our online future. These guys WILL get caught, governments are probably just contemplating their options. Their names will be listed on news articles and right under these articles will read "Government implements Internet restrictions." We will probably need to be listed into a government database to buy servers or anything of that nature, and simply toying with online infrastructures will get you jail time. New programmers and website builders will have a tougher job all thanks to these guys. All for what? Cus some noob hackers can't steal games and started crying when they were told to eff off by Sony. Oh let me guess we should blame Sony cus they didn't step aside and let it happen like everyone else huh....I hope they do it soon while Sony's security team is on high alert tracking anything and everything that even looks at the network wrong.
you don't get it. They have moved to another group that are not teens. These guys are mostly covert in everything. They have recruited the best of the best in the underground. Even as easily as they got LulzSec to get on board. There is a mountain of Black Hat talent on their side. I just can't figure why they would adopt LulzSec.
If I were serious I wouldn't trust attention whores like Llzsec for a minute with their random, grab whatever they can, makes no sense list of hacks. My only guess is that a mature and experiences hacker group might USE Lulzsec to take the fall for something they might want done. Make sure that they aren't going to be traced themselves and give Lulzsec he tools to do their dirty work-only thing that makes sense to me. If I was one of the script kids I'd be VERY wary about playing games with the big boys as they will keep themselves VERY safe and out of the dox'ing going on-Christ, they possibly see this as a way to offload a few of the things they've done themselves(things they don't want on their own toes) and you can only hope the need for attention is so great that those at Lulzsec fall for it. would be funny.
xd blackkat sec loool
well LulzSec try then you will find out if you are going to jail or not .lol no me.
cmon man theres bound to be one murderer that is a gamer . DO SOMETHING
Hackers are sissies and can't fight. Get a life losers.
Funny there was an article not to long ago on here announcing lulz had disbanded. Once again the n4g forums blew up patting each other on the back congratulating each other.
i pointed out that there was no reason to celebrate since these guys could get back together anytime. For my statement i disagreed to hell and back.
These's names are getting more creative with every little hacking group that pops up. :/ I figured we haven't seen the last of these guys. They love the attention and their little fanbase to much to just call it quits.
Why can't they just stop
Really? Again? So our online liberties are sacrificed so that they can have "fun"? Seriously. This is getting beyond a lulz moment and threading into dangerous territory, like we will kick their asses type
ever notice that all the hacker news comes from gamerscrypt. coincidence??????
They hope so. From my experience with them they dedicate 3 people to each news making event, person, group ect..to get information first. Seems to work out for them.
You know... if I leave the door of my house locked with a crappy door that's easily unlocked by using a lockpick doesn't mean you have the right to open my house, steal my shit just to prove that my house has "bad security". This is what they are doing on the net basically. Except the houses are the servers and the doors are the encryption and firewalls... -_-
And because my gran can't fight you off is it OK to rae and rob her on the street? Do we blame her, the police for not keeping the streets safe or the scum that do the crimes? It's not even close to being a hard one to answer at all now, is it?
I know what you mean. That is why what they are doing isn't ok... >_>
God if they want to prove them self's BIG hack Xbox live. They seem to brag they have the best online service.
I Hope Sony is setting a trap for these guys to walk into, These hackers arnt "safe" hens the arrests, Sony is probably counting on this and are just playing the waiting game
Hackers, why are you doing what you do if you do not get much agreement from almost anyone? Do you not see that now you're hated by everyone? What is the point of what you are doing? Stop talikng of freedom, please. You are the only ones that are limiting our freedom! A lot of people wants to see you died ... are you happy of all this? Well, if so, if all this makes you happy, then I can just hope you die all of a serious illness after you got caught and locked in a prison!
they know how much they are hated but like that useless crap that got arrested they are behind their keyboards hiding in mom and dads house.. Last thing they want is to walk freely outside with their identity exposed, god i wish all their info was posted.. would love to see how people treat them in public... Lots of people I know would love to lay hand on them, we are just hoping they are actually somewhere where we can get to them..
The annoying thing is, they won't even get sent to Jail if they were arrested. Usually they go anonymously off the radar and end up working for the government. Didn't Geohot just start working for Facebook or something ? People with talent like that should be doing something much more productive than hacking.
its payback time against console gamers because they are ruining pc gaming!
Come oooon... Enough with these Hacker groups and their personal vendettas against companies - and more notably Sony. They don't just hurt the companies, they hurt the customers and gamers too.
oh and i couldn't read sh!t on that website, its too crowded, frames overlapping each other, cropped jpg images of text. horrible
F*CK these new hackers!! cant wait til they get scared because of leaked info!!! then disband just to get caught!!! rofl bunch of Bythces!!!! leave PSN alone assholes!!!!
first off most retarded logo ever and its official this hacker BS has topped the brett favre and lebron james stories as most annoying ever!
i guess this is the generation where the gamers really really hate hackers. i've never seen hackers turning into 'attention whores". they used to be so cool. wtf happened?
Just bring it, pathetic b*tches! SONY will smash your ugly-asses faces!
These hackers need to get a life and stop playing god with their computer. It's up to consumers to punish corporations, not hackers.
To find out if your username or email was released to the public, go here: http://gizmodo.com/hackchec... It's legit. Thankfully none of my stuff was leaked, but I typed in a friend's email and it was leaked.
Looks like BlackKats going to be letting LulSec take the fall for a few things, can't say I won't find this funny when it happens.
