Just following the hack, LulzSec chat logs appeared online detailing a government raid of their chat server, stating “military hackers are trying to hack us.” They stated one member of the group, Robert Cavanaugh, was arrested. He is now allegedly in FBI custody.
The release came as there was a claim — totally unconfirmed — that a member of the group has been arrested by the FBI. The claim was made on the Full Disclosure mailing list, an independent free-wheeling mailing list that focuses on computer security. The message, which was sent by someone using the Hushmail secure email service, contained what is said to be a chat log from Lulzsec’s private IRC chat server, then mentions at the end that “one of them is already in FBI custody.” I have calls into FBI offices in Washington and New York, trying to corroborate the claim of the arrest.
Obviously, it’s possible that the claim is completely made up. It could be an attempt by someone to falsely implicate someone as a member of the group, throw off the trail, or just a nasty prank.
But if an arrest has been made, and the person arrested is a member of LulzSec, then it would probably be a fairly short time until other members are arrested too.
"LulzSec was compromised and a member of the group, Robert Cavanaugh, was arrested by the FBI on June 6. Meanwhile, LulzSec hacked Sony again, this time leaking the Sony Developer Network source code through file sharing websites."
Konichiwa from LulzSec, Sony bastards!
We've recently bought a copy of this great new game called "Hackers vs Sony", but we're unable to play it online due to PSN being obliterated. So we decided to play offline mode for a while and got quite a few trophies. Our latest goal is "Hack Sony 5 Times", so please find enclosed our 5th Sony hack.
Someone is trying to SQL inject our static pages on LulzSecurity.com - we can see you trying it, you are really embarrassing yourself. <3
