LulzSec hacked by TeaMp0isoN

LulzSec hackedThings are happening faster for LulzSec than we can report them – and not to the group’s benefit. Yesterday it was reported that a “mastermind” behind the hacktivists was arrested in the UK, although LulzSec denied Ryan Clearly’s role within the group. Clearly was charged with cybercrime offenses this morning by British prosecutors.

Official authorities aren’t the only ones waging war against LulzSec: Web Ninjas launched its own campaign against LulzSec and claimed to have turned over important details about their identities. The hacktivist group is making some enemies in the Internet community, and this morning a group calling itself TeaMp0isoN hacked the website of one of LulzSec’s members.

According to AfterDawn, TeaMp0isoN hacked Swen Slootweg’s (who goes by the handle Joepie91) website and posted the following message along with the Titantic theme “My Heart Will Go On” (you can check out a mirror of the site for yourself):

BREAKING NEWS: THE LULZBOAT HAS OFFICIALLY SANK WITH 100S OF ANON MEMBERS ON BOARD!

No matter how many bots you gather, no matter how much people you lie to, no matter how much pre-made tools you use, you will_NEVER_represent the real hacking scene, we warned you, we told you we do not make empty threats, we gave u 48hrs to secure your ircs yet u failed to do so, instead you posted hashes from public forums and then claimed you doxed us and laughed at the fact that I was 17 years old. Stop telling yourself that u are hackers, putting a ip into a irc is NOT hacking nor is using pre-made tools and scripts to grab databases…you do not represent the anti-sec movement, u are not allowed to greet underground groups like zf0, ab, h0n0, el8 like your member “AnonSabu” was doing, you will never be a part of the underground scene, if anyone thinks you are underground and can actually hack they have no idea about what happens in the underground scene. Oh and TeaMp0isoN issue 2 is coming out VERY soon exposing lulzsec members (pictures, addresses, passwords, ips, phone numbers etc)….not so anonymous anymore are you? Let’s hope that you can swim because the lulzboat just got titanic’d.

A chat log between alleged LulzSec members has also hit the Internet courtesy of someone going by the alias of Red_Penguin. “I am not promoting the purity and perfection of this government…But this Anti-Security operation is not the right answer. I suggest a #ProSec operation which does not damage the reputation of the Internet as a whole. Do not take up the Lulz Lizard banner and show how bad the Internet can be, but instead stand against those who are only damaging our interwebs which we live on and think for yourselves,” the anti-Lulz hacker explains. A link to the infamous Th3j35t3r’s site is included, who has declared his own anti-Lulz sentiments.

It would seem like things are catching up with LulzSec, and possibly Anonymous, which has aligned itself with the more attention-grabbing antics of LulzSec for Operation Anti-Sec. LulzSec has been relatively quiet, revealing only that it’s taken down several Brazilian websites.
