PBS Hacker LulzSec Takes On Archnemesis FBI, Defaces FBI-Affiliate Website In Protest Against NATO And Obama

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Even as the hacker collective known as Operation Empire State Rebellion, which back in March threatened to bring "peaceful revolution to America, and will engage in civil disobedience until Bernanke steps down" and has since largely fallen off the scene, presumably surprised by Bernanke complete of lack fazing, another hacker group, LulzSec, best known for recent hacking into PBS, has just taken the first step toward pissing off none other than its archnemesis the FBI, by defacing and taking control of an FBI affiliate website. From IBTimes: "In an apparent protest against the NATO and Obama administration, the LulzSec group announced the breach of FBI  affiliate website, the Atlanta chapter of Infragard. The group raised claims that they have taken “complete control” over the website and has “defaced it”. They also announced that the data including passwords obtained from infragardatlanta.org would prove useful for them to hack into other FBI affiliates, since a lot of users tend to reuse their passwords even though the practice is generally unappreciated by FBI." So while OP_ESR continues to engage in emptry rhetoric and summons the population to one after another attempt at uprising (Apparently June 14th is the latest D-Day), LulzSec, which is also speculated to be behind the historic ongoing hacks of the various Sony networks, is taking cyber-matters into its own hands. We wonder however whether this escalation of cyberwarfare against the US by the US will necessitate a declaration of war by Obama against the US. Admittedly, that would be a Keynesian wet dream: think of the record boost to GDP if Geithner literally nukes the west and eastern seaboards, only to rebuild them again...

From IBTimes:

In what looks like a silent propaganda, hackers continue to taunt corporations and have now laid their eyes on FBI. If the hackers' threats are valid, even NATO and Obama administration including top officials have got to be extra vigilant. While a large section believes that LulzSec, that hacked into the system of PBS, did so in a bid to show moral support for WikiLeaks, the matter is still under debate since Sony has also been devastated by back to back security breaches by the same group, which doesn’t really fit into the same scheme of things.

The hackers’ next target being FBI has raised considerable amount of uncertainty, as they have been tweeting about it under the tag #FuckFBIFriday. A little while before the Infragard hack, the group had posted a tweet: #FuckFBIFriday in 45 minutes. infragardatlanta.org is suspended following the hack.

The group has announced that an Infragard member offered them money to hack into his competitor’s website and to stay silent about his own database, when they informed him that his personal communication including that through Gmail has been compromised. According to the LulzSec’s claims, the member, Karim Hijazi’s company Unveillance, which specializes in data breaches, has been exposed to extract critical information. The group claimed to have uncovered an operation of US government orchestrated by Unveillance, “to control and assess Libyan cyberspace through malicious means”. The group alleged that “the U.S. government is funding the CSFI to attack Libya's cyber infrastructure”. “We accept your threats, NATO. Game on, losers”, LulzSec wrote in Pastebin.

The group posted a series of tweets mocking FBI, of which one said “we sit and laugh at the FBI. No times decided, but we'll cook up something nice for tonight.” The group has announced that “the hacks and leaks will always continue, even if twitter suspends our account”. FBI is yet to issue a statement regarding the matter.

In the meantime, the website of infraguardatlanta.org continues to be under the control of LulzSec, and in a brilliant example of hacker entrepreneurship, is nothing more than one big adsense ad, which is probably under the control of a LulzSec's adsense account, thus  profiting from everyone who is curious enough to visit the site.

We should use the English translation of "Al-Qaeda" it's, "The Base".

I would love for Obama to declare war on Americans and pull the Internet kill switch. Google, Apple, and Microsoft stock prices would go to zero overnight.

The mainstream media lost control of the message to sell their version of alternate reality to the American people. We get the true version of reality from the Internet now and the ruling elite don't like it. That's the main reason they are trying to shut down the Internet. Most hack attacks are government inside jobs for reasons we are very aware of.

Awesome! If there's anything that needs to be destroyed from within, it is Infragard. "A Public-Private Partnership" to be corporate spies who report to the FBI. Every executive gets to wear a badge and be the agent they wanted to be. And spy on people and do real damage too, say, competitors by feeding false info. Kinda like selling your tribal enemies to the American soldiers in Afghanistan.

Another suspect operation:

The notorious military contractor formerly known as Blackwater along with intelligence operations program Able Danger has formed a new spy firm called Jellyfish Intelligence.

Xe Services LLC and Able Danger claim the Jellyfish Intelligence is a “law-abiding” firm, which aims to sell intelligence to wealthy corporations

I agree with the Good Doctor.  If it is an outside group hacking the FBI website (even though funny to some degree) only brings the harsh reality of a regime that will do anything to hold power, such as turning off the internet Dont shit yourself, it is coming!!!

Or, another inside job of creating a false flag against the US govt so that they can again take over and hold us down by shutting down the net.  Dont shit yourself, it is coming!!!

Two possibilites.

#1) They get away with it, indefinitely. Unlikely, but with the kind of budget cuts that are coming, not impossible. 

#2) A few of them get ID'd, arrested, prosecuted, and convicted. Just a few, the rest slip away. 

THAT's actually worse. Because, by the workings of a pretty well understood notion in criminology, if you can only catch a few perpetrators, to have any chance of deterent value, you must punish them proportionally more harshly than if caught them all. Think drug war. 

And then a portion the ones that got away will militarize. They will take their obvious skills (which may just be the abilty to realize the bad habits their opponents Just  Can't  Shake), which they have so far used for glorified vandalism . . . and they will weaponize them.

And that's trouble we've not seen. Obama's "smart grid" would be a thousand fatal catastrophes waiting to happen, in the sights of truly militant hackers. 

Well, I guess we'll see. I wish them luck. Anyone who occupies the FBI is okay with me.

Just visited the website in question (let`s hope LulzSec do have an Adsense revenue going). What should be a website proclaiming just how `good` the company is now looks more like a promotional flyer for `all-you-can-eat` buffets. `Pulling the plug` on the internet is more or less impossible (probably the best that could be hoped for would be the raising of somewhat porous Great Firewalls of China in the USA - but these would no doubt have some Microsoft technology in the solution and would therefore be pretty vulnerable). 

Anyway, congrats to LulzSec. :)

Sounds, to me, like LulzSec is just another CIA operation striking a blow to our personal freedoms and liberities. This is exactly the type of situation necessary in order to use the "internet kill switch", as was used in Eygpt. Or it could be the basis for widespread censorship, as is done in China. This group, while I fully support dissent, I question this particular situation, mocking the FBI on twitter (and the point is?), it is too convenient, just after the un-Patriot Act is renewed?

"We wonder however whether this escalation of cyberwarfare against the US by the US will necessitate a declaration of war by Obama against the US."

Kind of makes you wonder what excuse or scenario will be used to "cross the Rubicon" in it's most literal sense. So far, I am betting on the idea of hiring Xe mercenaries to invade your own country. Only American mercinaries, because foreign mercinaries would be rude, later the ones that have cute accents can be hired. They will probably call them something clever like travel assistants and have them on every street corner.

It will be interesting if Obama and Holder are still at the helm (with support of Dems and Rep alike) and begin the final phase of selling Americans into slavery. One man's irony is another man's poetic justice (TM).

But if they dont get it done there will be an election for another one to take a crack at it (no diff if it is red or a blue)...

The U.S. government is probably doing it, just so they then can take control of the internet for cyber terror reasons.  It is a false flag operation, just to be able to shut down sites they don't want up and so on.  I believe it is the government itself doing this.

UN report: "three strikes" Internet laws violate human rights

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/06/un-free-speech-watchdog-blasts-three-strikes-rules.ars

UN Report:


52. When a cyber-attack can be attributed to the State, it clearly constitutes inter alia a

violation of its obligation to respect the right to freedom of opinion and expression.

Although determining the origin of cyber-attacks and the identity of the perpetrator is often

technically difficult, it should be noted that States have an obligation to protect individuals

against interference by third parties that undermines the enjoyment of the right to freedom

of opinion and expression. This positive obligation to protect entails that States must take

appropriate and effective measures to investigate actions taken by third parties, hold the

persons responsible to account, and adopt measures to prevent such recurrence in the future.

Agreed and, whether "real" or not, this is just another sign that we will have more chaos, more anarchy.  This isn't the 1950's and we don't have the democracy/communist cold war black/white dichotomy world view anymore.  We have failed nation states (USSR ---> now "Russia") and failing nation states (USA, Japan) and unstable regions (EU/EMU, Middle East).  We have whole societies of people who cannot think independently or live without some form of government involvement or government assistance.  We are definitely living through a period of dramatic change to the human condition, perhaps no less dramatic than the fall of the Roman Empire and the start of the Middle Age or of the transition from Middle Age to the Enlightenment.

Arrrr, the kraken is released bitches. Even if/when bitcoin comes under heavy fire there is no stopping the idea now. Just as bittorent raped the entertainment goons and their copyright weaksauce, so shall cryptocurrency DSK the sovereign fiat maid. Long live cypherspace.

Another fun parallel is the gap between your average American debt slave who only yearns for a new episode of American Idol/Jersey Shore/NBA game, and the folks that spend their time hunting and collecting 0days and mastering SQL; it's a technological gini coefficient if you will. As our world becomes more and more digitized(online banking/transaction, mobile payments, etc), the brainless zombies stand no chance. There will be MANY more pirates on the oceans, not just for laughs, but because it will be even more profitable than it is now.

And on the political front, one could take the view that the disaffection among the masses over decreased living standards/increased authoritarianism will provide a backdrop of support for the outlaws against the entrenched dinosaurs of oppression. Interesting times ahead, no doubt.

That`s probably right. However, wilfully withholding taxes usually leads to a very nasty experience in the gulag system that passes as prison. Let`s hope that the douche in the Hamptons gets rumbled for insider trading and has the joys of incarceration to look forward to (yes, I`m a naive fool, but I live in hope (doubly naive)).

Taxing the sheeple is the primary method in which government is able to declare perceived value to otherwise valueless state-produced counterfeit.

Sinister treachery to be sure!  Right up their with the indecent villiany that is state-induced inflation. 

It is a dark time for humanity indeed when failed nation states now resort to waging war against their own citizenry.

What we are forced to do is earn money so low in total gross for the year that we pay zero. Yes there is taxes paid etc etc etc... essentially there is nothing much to go on except to living within your means and be happy.

 

Nuking both coasts will be a very bad day for us all. And  possibly a start of a new future.

No worries about the gummit "locking down" the Internet.  They don't have the resources or competence to maintain the FUCKING FBI website, and people think they're going to pass and enforce a law that's going to "control" everything?

Ha.

Government power exists mainly in your mind.

Whack-a-mole.

It "costs" more in resources to police these operations (or shut them down, or imprison their creators, or whatever) than it does for some other asshole to bring a replacement online.  The theory might be that you can create deterrence by "making an example," but the most important social forces on the Internet don't exactly brim with respect for authority.

Dinosaurs couldn't compete with rodents.  Same thing here.

Here in NYC, most of my neighbors hate the rats.

I've always been a big fan.  They've been doing more good for us than the yuppies and the crack-dealers.

Sigh. He's a muslim, is he? What, he prays to Mecca 5 times a day? Ships sophisticated weapons to the Palestinians so they can fight back against Israel? Withdrawn from muslim countries like Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen?

He's as Muslim as Netanyahu.

The ironic thing is, Rev. Wright is clearly (at least) 75% European.

I doubt Obama hates Whites, particularly. At least not in the sense that he likes Blacks more.

There are a thousand Obamas/Clintons/Bushes/McCains ready to take his place. The only way to change the system is to educate the electorate so they stop electing these empty suits in the first place. Shooting the current puppet would make no difference to how the world is run.

I have no faith in the "electorate". They get what they deserve. Eventually if you get a couple of million of them armed with their AKs and nothing to lose, things will happen. Not soon enough though.

#OpESR was never a hacker collective - it was a tribble farm, deliberately set up, but given some nice tidbits, info and esprit de corps. The owners were media whores, looking for some Anon PR... and you can 100% guarentee that the 700 odd members all got fingered. Especially the more socially networking ones, but hey - read the warnings on the tin. Some Anonymous even had hissy fits over the newfagness of the entire site, and moralfaggotry attached - they then went and had a drama queen IRC fallout over domain ownership, so +9000 irony. *shrug*

The point of it was clear - if you read carefully, and between the lines, it lead other places: it was also safe in that anything going on there was in no danger of anything radical enough to lead to time, which was the opposite approach to LOIC, which did incur some 10-15 yr olds' parents getting naughty letters. Also, youngsters need a bit more than pure /b/ all the time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Smog

If you're looking for 'hackers', Maltego 3 is out soon [http://www.paterva.com/web5/] and all the http://www.social-engineer.org/ peeps are wetting themselves over it. Of course, LulzSec is out there - what it is, only they know at this time... yaaaar. Might want to read the logs from the "whitehats" helping the Gov. out though - ethically challenged.

The idea that the CIA are good at hacking, when there's its the NSA who handle the MIT geniuses, is a bit weird. But anyhow.

 

Disclaimer: fully aware of the irony and humour attached to code Geeks realising that social relations get you secrets faster than code, most of the time. Oh - and I'd suspect that anyone on here is getting mined as we speak. http://www.minecraft.net/

 

tldr;

 

OpESR isn't what you think it is.

Admittedly, that would be a Keynesian wet dream: think of the record boost to GDP if Geithner literally nukes the west and eastern seaboards, only to rebuild them again...

Ah, the famous melted window fallacy.

When Goldman Sachs alerted the FBI to the theft of this code they complained, "If our code gets into the wrong hands they could use it to manipulate the markets."

the plot thickens.. are we seeing more CIA vs FBI in recruiting cybercriminals and the blowback??

 OR..  lulzsec trolling the trolls?  it seems they have lots of 'private' channels that they feed and that registration was 5/30 so probably just changed to Lamos for lulz
