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?

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

Goth_SkunkDespite not being a fan of fighting games I had to check out that R Mika trailer. Loved it. Still won't buy the game though, on account of Isuckatstreetfighteritis.08/29/2015 - 2:42am
MechaCrashI use a Dynex DX-840 headset, but it's discontinued. :( I wanted a mono headset so I could keep the other ear free for my speakers, but it has the bonus of being very light and comfortable, so you don't notice it.08/29/2015 - 12:41am

Big PermAlso, yes. I've been spamming the shoutbox. I don't have much going on today, don't judge me08/28/2015 - 3:25pm
Big PermThanks, but yeah. Not sure I wanna drop that kind of cash :P I don't even mind the sound quality of my krakens, it just hurts to wear em after a couple hours.08/28/2015 - 3:25pm
Sora-Chan@Big Perm: I'm a bit of a fan of the Omega Recon3D headset from SoundBlaster. Though it is a bit expensive.08/28/2015 - 2:36pm
Big PermI actually need to look into a new headset. I have those green razer krakens and I would not suggest them. Though maybe they're better for people without glasses08/28/2015 - 11:32am
