After PBS’s documentary on wikileaks “Wikisecrets” painted alleged cablegate leaker Bradley Manning in a seemingly negative light some hacktivists have set their sights on PBS. A group going by the name “LulzSec” posted some fake news stories and pages on PBS’s site and published database dumps of usernames, passwords, email, and other confidential information here. Though they claim not to be affiliated with Anonymous, the style is certainly similar. They even included a taunting statement, “Hey Anonymous, we heard you were having trouble!” in reference to the recent anonymous split and anonops.net hack. I suspect these are more 4chan hackers, possibly even the ones responsible for the anonops.net hack.
yesterday, anonymous’s irc server was hacked and user’s ip addresses and private messages were posted
here. Looking at the logs, it is clear to me that many of their users use proxies, VPNs, or some other way to obscure their actual address. It is doubtful that any serious hacktivists were actually unmasked. With rumors of an internal conflict within anonymous ablaze online, it is still unclear who was responsible or when their operations will be back online.
