Lulz Security Exits Stage Left with Massive Data Dump

June 28, 2011 -

Late last week hacking group Lulz Security announced that they were all done hacking websites, servers and game services. But before the group said its final bon voyage it committed one more act on Saturday: they released a 500MB torrent file containing all kinds of data stolen from various places. The most notable data from the file is from the beta of Battlefield Heroes. We assume the data is old.

The torrent file contained data related to 550,000 user accounts from the Battlefield Heroes beta (usernames and hashed passwords) and data from an additional 50,000 member accounts from various gaming forums. Other data released includes an SQL file for hackforums.net; an internal help and configuration cheat sheet for AOL; an error script from an FBI page; 11,793 user accounts for nato-bookshop.org; a screenshot of a compromised job search for the American Department of the Navy; CIDR network ranges from several corporations; and employee data from Priority Investigations Limited; data and file dumps of AT&T’s internal network.

Will this be the last gasp of the hacking group that has terrorized League of Legends, The Escapist, the CIA, Eve Online and more over the past 50 days? Or is this just a ruse? We'll continue to follow this story.

I just found out I was one of the few who had his information leaked because of the Battlefield beta.

 

What was worse is that its tied to my main EA account so you could use that same login information to get into it.

 

Honestly Lulzsec can eat a dick.

...

"Terrorized"? Wait, people were scared and actually took this all seriously?

You didn't hear the chanting of the lynch mob?

Do they somehow think people won't still be after them?

IvresseJust finished with Coxcon 2015 last night (convention in the UK organised by Youtube Jesse Cox). Was a damn good weekend meeting Jesse, Totalbiscuit, Dodger etc. and getting to ask them questions and stuff.08/03/2015 - 6:15am
InfophileReference for my comment earlier about Dan Aykroyd in the new Ghostbusters: http://www.theguardian.com/film/2015/jul/15/ghostbusters-call-dan-aykroyd-for-cameo08/03/2015 - 6:00am
benohawkI hope the new ghostbusters is good regardless, but I also expect it to have to surpass the orignal for people to acknowledge that.08/03/2015 - 1:37am
benohawkMecha, those changes are also some of the bigger complaints I've heard about the Abrams Star Trek movie.08/03/2015 - 1:35am
MechaTama31https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vU_D96AdK0M <-- Letterman interview with Bill Murray, he seems to have a similar opinion to mine about the pink-slime movie.08/02/2015 - 11:27pm
MechaTama31I don't think it's as big a deal as you think, matts. After all, JJ Abrams' Star Trek removed the original cast (mostly) and changed the formula significantly. If the movie is enjoyable, people will enjoy it.08/02/2015 - 11:23pm

MattsworknameInfo: Well thats something at least08/02/2015 - 3:04pm
Infophile@Matt: Apparently Dan Aykroyd actually is involved. We don't know how yet, though, but he's apparently going to be in the movie in some way.08/02/2015 - 4:17am
MattsworknameI still hold that not having the origonal cast invovled in any way hurts this movie, and unless the 4 actresses in the lead roles can some how measure up to the comic timing of the origonal cast, i just don't see it being a success08/02/2015 - 12:46am
MattsworknameMecha: regardless of what you think of it, GB 2 was a finanical success and for it time did well with audiances ,even if it wasnt as popular as the first08/02/2015 - 12:45am
MechaTama31I think they're better off trying to do something different, than trying to be exactly the same and having every little difference held up as a shortcoming. Uncanny valley.08/01/2015 - 11:57pm
MechaTama31Having the original cast didn't do much for... that pink-slimed atrocity which we must never speak of.08/01/2015 - 11:56pm
MattsworknameAndrew: If the new ghostbusters bombs, I cant help but feel it'll be cause it removed the origonal cast and changed the formula to much08/01/2015 - 8:31pm
Andrew EisenNot the best look but that appears to be a PKE meter hanging from McCarthy's belt.08/01/2015 - 7:34pm
