Hector Xavier Monsegur, 4 Other Reported LulzSec Hackers Arrested By FBI

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 7, 2012

NEW YORK — The shadowy underworld of Internet hackers was rocked by news Tuesday that one of the world’s most-wanted and most-feared computer vandals has been an FBI informant for months and helped authorities build a case against five alleged comrades.

The FBI said it captured the legendary hacker known as “Sabu” last June, and he turned out to be Hector Xavier Monsegur, 28, a self-taught, unemployed computer programmer with no college education, living on welfare in public housing in New York.

His exploits made him a hero to some in cyberspace until he made a rookie mistake – he posted something online without cloaking his IP address, or computer identity – and someone tipped off the FBI.

Soon after his arrest, he pleaded guilty and began spilling secrets, leading to charges Tuesday against five people in Europe and the U.S., including a Chicago man, and preventing more than 300 attacks along the way, authorities said.

Law enforcement officials said it marked the first time core members of the loosely organized worldwide hacking group Anonymous have been identified and charged in the U.S.

Investigators said Monsegur and the other defendants were all associated with the group, and some were also part of the elite spinoff organization that Monsegur formed last May, Lulz Security or LulzSec. “Lulz” is Internet slang for “laughs” or “amusement.”

Monsegur and the other defendants were accused in court papers of hacking into corporations and government agencies around the world, including the U.S. Senate, filching confidential information, defacing websites and temporarily putting victims out of business. Authorities said their crimes affected more than 1 million people. Read the rest of this entry »

LulzSec Hackers Retire? Group Claims It’s Finished After 50 Days Of ‘Mayhem’

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 26, 2011

The unpredictable hacker group known as Lulz Security may be throwing in the towel after 50 days of almost constant cyberattacks.

On Saturday, LulzSec posted what it claimed to be “our final release.” (They also tweeted a link to what may be their very last data dump.)

From the post:

For the past 50 days we’ve been disrupting and exposing corporations, governments, often the general population itself, and quite possibly everything in between, just because we could. All to selflessly entertain others – vanity, fame, recognition, all of these things are shadowed by our desire for that which we all love. The raw, uninterrupted, chaotic thrill of entertainment and anarchy. It’s what we all crave, even the seemingly lifeless politicians and emotionless, middle-aged self-titled failures. You are not failures. You have not blown away. You can get what you want and you are worth having it, believe in yourself. Read the rest of this entry »
