LulzSec has risen once again. Now he's after Mojang. Lulzsec, about 30 minutes ago, hacked the Minecraft server, he posts on his twitter.
 
No Minecraft with friends nor online for a few days dudes.

#2 Posted by InternetCrab (1504 posts) -

 
He's been doing this all day, looking for new targets, and it's called TitanicTakeOverTuesday. He asks on Twitter for people to say targets to hack.
 
This is not good.

Okay that is FUCKING IT! you fuck with PSN and you get the fucking government after you, you then hack nintendo and then epic and the fucking Bethesda and release peoples personal info just because they wouldn't put a dumbass hat in your game, that is FUCKING IT! I sugguest capital punishment LIVE on tv on every fucking channel to make them a fucking example. NO ONE FUCKS WITH MINECRAFT and get away ALIVE. I am fucking angry and hackers need to start dying NOW.

Not much to hack there, since Minecraft doesn't deal with credit card information and such. Everything goes through Pay-Pal. A password could be compromised but that's about it. Well.. unless you have the same password for your Paypal account of course.

#8 Posted by No0b0rAmA (1490 posts) -

I don't understand the point of going around and hacking all of these game devs and companies. What happened that people on the internet are so pissed?

#9 Posted by IIChristian89II (243 posts) -

well that sucks. I didnt care about psn or nintendo. Bethsda pissed me off a little bit but i actually really enjoy minecraft, at first it was 'lulz' but now its just boring.

 He still stops the servers so people can't play online (or with friends). Luckily yes, they don't deal with CC info. 
 
Following LulzSec on twitter is great, since he post things about each 10 minutes about things he's planning and all, so that's a great idea to do that if you have the tweets.
#11 Posted by Jams (2961 posts) -

@No0b0rAmA: Probably just getting a real ego trip. Adrenaline rush and all that. The more he does it (especially when the hacks are so close together) the higher the chance he'll slip up and they'll catch him. That's how it always works in the movies anyways.

Soooo.... releasing over 200K peoples info from bethesda is okay with you? 
 
IMO we need to start issuing some fucking death penalties for this shit, right now. Live on TV. Sure it may make hackers pissed off to read me saying this. but to be quite honest, they deserve it for all the shit PSN and everyone else being hacked and their info comprimized. Examples need to be made now.
#13 Edited by MattyFTM (14393 posts) -

It sounds like they're just ddosing a bunch of shit right now. That's not really hacking, it's just using already hacked computers to pound servers with a shit load of traffic and taking them down. They've done it to The Escapist, EVE Online and some random company that provides some security services for the government within the last hour. They've got a phone number and are asking people to call in suggesting targets. They're calling it "#TitanicTakeoverTuesday" on twitter.

Someone needs to just cut off these assholes' hands so they can't use a computer anymore. It's not funny, its not helpful and its just annoying and mean spirited.

Not the first time Minecraft have been attacked though. They are already back up again.

#18 Edited by ShadowKirby (25 posts) -

They also took down EVE Online and The Escapist Magazine.

#19 Posted by Barrock (3536 posts) -

Really wish someone who could actually hack would hack them back. Hacker on hacker action would be hot.

There's alot of people telling him to hack Facebook. Oh shit.

can we just get one thread called "lulzsec attacks ______" and just bump it when something new happens, and keep an updated list in the op?
 
much less clutter

They did hack into bethesda and gave out around 200K peoples personal info from that site from brink players. Sound like a joke man? 
#25 Posted by Ekpyroticuniverse (144 posts) -

what is the point of all this?

Can somebody please make a sticky about this so we don't have to see 20 of these banal fucking attempts at threads every day? Cheers.

At what point did I say it was a joke? Of course it's not a joke. All I'm saying is that what they're doing here seems to be different to the bethesda attack. They're don't seem to be hacking Minecraft, The Escapist or Eve to try and steal information like they have done in the past, they seem to be launching a ddos attack to take down the servers.

And they didn't release the info from the 200k people, they said that they like bethesda and want them to keep on making Skyrim awesome, so to give them one less thing to worry about they wouldn't release the account info.

In fact there's a link to a pastebin of the dump in yesterday's article's comments, which I've flagged and has yet to be removed. Apparently such links that contain people's personal information are okay to post on Giant Bomb, but torrents are not. Way to go, mods.

#30 Posted by Meowshi (2911 posts) -

Looking on their twitter, they claim that they didn't release personal information.  

#31 Posted by MistaSparkle (2148 posts) -

Don't worry! I'm putting Mr. Lulzsec is it? on my ban list! There now we're safe haha...right...?  
Nah jk but this really sucks i love my minecraft. I wonder how the yogscast will respond...

Apologies Gentlemen - Sarcasm is hard to  detect on  the internet, i keep forgetting. (should have attached  /sarcasm)  
 
I was merely emulating a certain group of forum users responses to ever lulzsec hack thus far which has been along the lines of "they are our saviours internet white knights company and user base deserbed it etc" 
 I personally think the hackers are scum and need to be locked the fuck up like a criminal 'IRL' would be, the laws need to evolve with the internet, and fast - or else this is where we end up

That pastebin thing doesn't contain any bethesda users details. Lulzsec chose not to release the users details. They said on their pastebin thingy "Please find enclosed everything we took, excluding one thing - 200,000+ Brink users. We actually like this company and would like for them to speed up the production of Skyrim, so we'll give them one less thing to worry about. You're welcome! :D".

I totally thought you were taking the piss until " needless to say i shall not be purchasing another minecraft product for some time"   
 
That just seemed so genuine I believed the entire thing.

#35 Posted by TekZero (2673 posts) -

It's strange that they are targeting game companies and only game companies.  Usually hackers are gamers themselves so they are essentially shooting themselves in the foot.  I would like them to start messing with the big boys, like Facebook.  And fail miserably (and get arrested).

That ascii art of the boat, Set Sail for Fail! gives me a chuckle. Not really seeing a point to all this though.

I don't think Giantbomb is really to LulzSec awareness, they only done it to very major sites and games.
 
EDIT: Not that Giantbomb isn't fucking major, but...there are bigger sites out there, but Giantbomb is still a very big site.
#41 Posted by Keenblaze (471 posts) -

Wait... I thought they hacked Sony in protest of the GeoHotz debacle... Now they're just randomly attacking game companies, and by extension, gamers? I thought they were trying to portray themselves as friends of the people.

#42 Posted by Aus_azn (2224 posts) -

It's one thing to hack to make a point. It's another when you just do it "for the lulz" and essentially just troll the internet.
 
Especially for petty things like "speeding up development on Skyrim"...

#43 Posted by TekZero (2673 posts) -

From wikipedia : 
 
If the United States found itself under a major cyberattack aimed at undermining the nation's critical information infrastructure, the Department of Defense is prepared, based on the authority of the President, to launch [...] an actual bombing of an attack source or a cyber counterattack." 
 
 
.  Hey, they should totally attack the government and see what happens.  I'm sure they'll get the lulz they are looking for.

Are you an idiot? Death penalties for hacking? You have to be like 12 or something because that's the most idiotic, ridiculous idea. Hacking is not a crime worthy of being murdered, you moron.

#46 Posted by Korolev (1709 posts) -

They are digging their grave. A lot of these hackers like to think they are invincible - no one is invincible. The NSA have some pretty nasty stuff in their arsenal and if these jokers start inflicting too much damage (economic or otherwise) the NSA might just start to play hardball and wave a few constitutional protections. I'm not saying it would be right for the NSA to spy domestically, but that is what they would do. Lulzsec needs to realize that they are only anonymous and protected because of the way the laws are set up. If they cause too much damage, they might give Uncle Sam the excuse he needs to tighten the laws or regulate the internet further.

Again, I am not saying it would be right for the government to control the internet. What I am saying is that the more Lulzsec does this, the more anonymous does this, the more the hackers do this, the more attention they are going to start receiving. Brian Manning might have company in a few days (I do not endorse what happened to Manning, but it did happen to him, and if it could happen to him, it can happen to Lulzsec. Pretty hard to DDoS someone from a 4x4 concrete cell with steel toilet and bed.

Can someone please explain this to me? 
Why are they bringing down game servers? 
 
The defense "To expose their weak security, we are helping."  Is stupid. 
That's like me punching a baby and saying, "Hey, you left yourself exposed, you need to toughen up."   
Hackers will always exists, I just don't understand the motive in taking down Minecraft etc.
