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?

WonderkarpI didnt know we were talking about Capitalism. What do mass shootings have to do with trade and industry that is controlled by private owners for profit?01/25/2015 - 3:28pm
ConsterYou do realize that what you're doing right now isn't what capitalism means, right?01/25/2015 - 2:39pm

ZippyDSMleeeffect like confusion,ect. QTEs are a gimmick that can easily be shallow because you are looking to mess with conditioned responses and nothing messes with them more than random gameplay changes..01/24/2015 - 7:58pm
ZippyDSMleeWonderkarp: They tried to be natural with God Of Wars QTE’s, sometimes it felt random which I hate the most in QTEs. The way you interface with gameplay (press X to get X result) should never rely on randomly generated mechanics unless it’s a status01/24/2015 - 7:57pm

Neo_DrKefkaHey GamePolitics staff can you guys work out the way the ads are delivered via mobile? Sometimes any attempt to do anything on this site automatically forwards you to download "Flappy bird" on a shady site or another thing. It just hijacks my Safari01/24/2015 - 3:47pm
WonderkarpI feel like the only good QTEs were the ones in the God of War series. I dont know why though.. maybe its the visceral carnage01/24/2015 - 1:13pm
ZippyDSMleeprh99: QTEs are dumb I ever understood the need for them outside being cheap and wanting to pad mechanics with scripted events that use only a few buttons.01/24/2015 - 12:58pm
