The security forces all over the globe have been desperately trying to reveal the identities of LulzSec and Anonymous hackers, while journalist Parmy Olson obtained extraordinary access to the hacking groups and wrote a book.
Everyone remembers how in 2010 a new global superpower emerged, which was acting in unorthodox ways, was unaccountable and yet of the people – nameless, faceless and Anonymous. The group was created online and acted most decisively and effectively when it saw threats to the Internet itself. For example, its most successful operations were carried out after infamous WikiLeaks released the embassy cables and lots all sources of funding because major payment systems refused to take donations on its behalf under the pressure of the government.
You can learn from Parmy Olson, a reporter with Forbes and the author of “We Are Anonymous”, that it was WikiLeaks attacks that turned Anonymous political. Olson managed to create a clear, coherent narrative from lots of confusing detail, tracing Anonymous’ origins to the 4Chan site. Her book details the chronology of the group’s evolution, although everyone, including the media, police and even the hackers themselves, had their own opinions of what it really was.
The book also mentions LulzSec, a small group of talented hackers and activists, recognized as the most wanted cyber-criminals in the world, who easily hacked the CIA and the British Serious Organized Crime Agency. Good sense of humor they had – after PBS criticized WikiLeaks, LulzSec hacked into its server and published a story claiming that Tupac Shakur had been found alive and well in New Zealand. In addition, the hackers took down the Sun’s front page to replace it with another, saying that Rupert Murdoch had died in his famous topiary garden.
Everything is described in the book, which was written a year ago, as the author befriended the key members of the group before their identities were disclosed by the authorities. As you know, the FBI picked up one of the band members and turned him into an informer, and then the arrests followed. The review, posted by the Guardian, admits that “We Are Anonymous” has only one substantive flaw, which is even not the author’s fault – it is at the moment out of date because of the numerous legal issues surrounding the trials – so it contains no updates on the sentencing and nothing on the significance of the PRISM leaks by Snowden.

|so tired of hearing about these amateur wanna bes ive openly and publicly called both anonymous and lulzsec giving them my i.p. address and dared them to even attempt to hack me show me its not all predesigned programs that use exploits. show me any one of them could use a command line. they tried and failed which was my point all along.these 2 groups have as much talent as a script kiddie in their parents basement.|
|agreed @1 it was a joke from the start none of them actually knows wtf they were doing maybe a few if anything . i followed them watched as fleets of jackasses followed cheering on a group of bt4/5 poster children what i hate is how much celebrity they get when poeople who dedicate years and time to actually learning how use cmd/tml without armitage or fastrack base progs to do it for you.|
|Even if they were all stupid compared to you #1 and #2, at least when they saw the injustice of what scum like the NSA/CIA and big corporations and even foreign governments were doing to the average citizen they tried to do something. And they must have done something good, because those dinny yank spooks and their mates hate them. U both obviously know a lot about computing and IT, so instead of bitching about them because they wouldn`t let you in their little group, why don`t you use your knowledge to at least try and do some good, like they tried.|
|Yeah i agree with hairpin at least ive heard of LulzSec,nobody has heard of alexanderlecard or alchemy316 so that = NOBODY,S. listen to them they talk a good fight idiots.|
|if you Google me you'll get lot more info on me. 14 years dept Homeland Security, testified in front of 4 sub committee's, and worked with 2 presidents. 30 years in computer Security with top secret Security clearances. I think that qualified me to call them what they are kids. After all i called both group leaderships out posted publicly my home network daring them to hack me with their quote skills. they tried and failed and i embarrassed them. Trust me they Have heard of me.|
|#1 & #6 - alexanderlecard, So you have some skills in IT, you should help them instead of bitching about them.|
|Divide and conquer!|
|@5 really did you actually look into the fact nobody uses the same username from site to site beyond that look into who or what each of these team members did beyond making backtrack more famous and snitch to the people the said they fight against i need not to invest time into meaningless attention whoring on twitter i have a job|
|Alexanderlecard- I'm gonna have to go ahead and call bullshit on you. First of all anyone with the credentials that you claim to have wouldn't feel the need to throw them around on a torrent web site. Next point- the Dept. of Homeland Security hasn't even existed for 14 years so obviously you couldn't have worked for them that long. Your other posts don't give much creed to your claim, either. Put your money where your mouth is- You are supposedly a network security specialist... do you not have a honeypot running on a fiber line somewhere? Why would you give these people your home network IP? Why would you need to give a "hacker" an IP to begin with? If they knew the least bit about what they were doing could they not find this simple publicly available information themselves? IDK- it just all sounds more like you're about 15 years old and crave attention to me...|
|wow didnt know people were so uneducated. throwing my credentials around? only when i got bunch twenty somethings questioning my knowledge of i.t.,hackers etc. again feel free take look at the employee roster on dhs website im listed in there for 14 years and we didn't officially take the name till 2001 but we were around 2 years before that. 15 huh lol I wish actually im 46 on Sept 16. Lastly why give em my i.p. because my network has dod standards and my point was you put these kids up against a real network not a defacing or some common exploit. they have zero skills. my statement stands both these groups are idiots and have NO SKILLS||
