LulzSec sought to teach snitches a lesson on Tuesday night.
Earlier, UK media reported that UK authorities arrested a 19-year-old LulzSec hacker. He was referred to by some as the mastermind of the group.
LulzSec has since denied that the individual belonged to the group, let alone hold any position of leadership.
Nevertheless, someone did leak LulzSec chat logs and caused the arrest of the 19-year-old. On Monday night, LulzSec claims to have outed the individual responsible for the leak (i.e. the snitch) and his associate in a Pastebin post here.
The post included detailed personal information of the two individuals as well as the cyber crimes they've committed.
LulzSec said the following regarding its outing of the snitches:
- They leaked logs, we owned them, one of them literally started crying for mercy, we saw it fit to pastebin their home addresses.
- Remember this tweet, m_nerva, for I know you'll read it: your cold jail cell will be haunted with our endless laughter. Game over, child.
- These goons begged us for mercy after they apologized to us all night for leaking some of our affiliates' logs. There is no mercy on The Lulz Boat. Snitches get stitches.
As for the UK authorities, LulzSec said they were so desperate to catch us that they've gone and arrested someone who is, at best, mildly associated with us.
LulzSec recently declared war against governments and high-ranking establishments in a manifesto dubbed Operation Anti-Security. It threatened to hack and leak sensitive information, similar to what Wikileaks did with its network of informants.
It claimed to be fighting against the profiteering gluttons who control the global system and allegedly threaten to encroach on the freedom of individuals.
LulzSec, as skillful as it is, acknowledged the possibly that it would be caught one day. But until the real LulzSec is brought to justice, expect more cyber carnage.
We'll continue creating things that are exciting and new until we're brought to justice, which we might well be. But you know, we just don't give a living fuck at this point, the group said.
