Rival Hacker Group Posts Real Names Of LulzSec Members

A group calling itself “The A-Team” has posted what it claims are the real identities of the members of the notorious hacker group LulzSec. From the sounds of it, they aren’t impressed with the groups antics:

The problem with Lulzsec/gn0sis’s “Hacktivist” mantra is that they lack the skills to keep it going. As such after SONY they couldn’t get into anything. So they switched their focus to just releasing random crap that didn’t mean anything. Then they started running out of things they could hack. So they put out requests for people to join them. That got them a few hits, and now they’ve switched their gears again to be “ANTI-SEC”. Whether or not this was an attempt at bring other groups out of the shadows (el8, h0no, zf0, etc), you can only speculate. But as of this writing: 6/24/2011 Sabu and Topiary are the only two people updating the twitter and releasing shit. Kayla is MIA. The gn0sis kids are gone in hiding somewhere.

From what we’ve seen these lulzsec/gn0sis kids aren’t really that good at hacking. They troll the internet and search for sqlinjection vulnerabilities as well as Remote File Include/Local File Include bugs. Once found they try to download databases or pull down usernames and passwords. Their releases have nothing to do with their goals or their lulz. It’s purely based on whatever they find with their “google hacking” queries and then release it.

Perhaps this is the real reason why they pulled the plug on themselves this weekend? We’ll never know because I doubt the world will ever get a straight answer from them. But I suspect that given the nature of the hacks they’ve done, The A-Team are going to be the least of their problems.
