Group’s attack continue to grow more flagrant, as do its detractors
At around 6 p.m. Wednesday night after a busy day of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks some “31337” 2005-era “/b/tards” posted a microblog to Twitter. But these weren’t just any “/b/tards”; these were the most infamous hackers of the year — LulzSec…..
LulzSec appears to think itself untraceable, given its flagrant hacks — infiltrating the U.S. Senate servers, hacking an U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations affiliate, and now hacking the public presence of the world’s “most powerful” intelligence agency.
And it’s using new tactics. LulzSec has set up two phone lines — 614-LULZSEC or 732-993-7703 — and is taking thousands of calls a day. Some it actually answers, asking guests questions for prizes or regaling them in a faux French accents. But it’s also redirect the calls to phone denial of service (DOS) attacks — something rarely seen today.
