Going after Microsoft would take too much work, and actual hacking, so they go after companies still affiliated with them.

It's actually kind of cool seeing how they structured their tables but hackers suck and I wish they would start doing useful things with their talents instead of harming video game companies for the lulz.

So is it confirmed? Did he in fact do it for the lulz?
#28 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

Did he steal a Gears of War 3 file for the lulz?

Wait, nevermind.

@ContraHaxContra

Back to programming... unless somebody has some better targets in mind that can provide sufficient lulz.

@TheHackersNews http://pastebin.com/X455ZARH Now, shall I free my fellow man and wipe the banned players/cd-keys databases for all games?

I assume that has something to do with it?

Well that makes the whole story even sadder. No morally grey crusade against a corrupt company, no job recruitment attempt, just a sad person who wants to further ruin everyone's online play by helping out cheaters and criminals. Great.

That sad little bitch didn't get into the Gears 3 beta, obviously.

...You're going to SIT THERE AND TELL ME that a hacker broke into a commercial site and stole data? In this day and age? PLEASE.

The only thing that warrants this is GoW series. Else, why? Epic is epic aside from GoW

Also, it's not hacking, it's cracking. newbs!

Explain how it would be to much work? and how actual hacking would be needed? I bet they could get into microsoft's networks in a matter of hours of just messing around.. nothing is hard to get into if you know what your doing..

Not sure why the original post seems so excited about this unless he/she possibly knew more about this or those involved. Personally it's not that odd to see a company website hacked so hopefully Epic will legally go after those involved as well as bludgeoning the person with a keyboard.
