TeaMp0isoN, a hacking group is trying to expose anonymous group identities of its rival LulzSec group, which obtained confidential documents in an attack on Arizona law enforcement.
TeaMp0isoN is now in the race to bring down LulzSec and and give them a taste of its own medicine, FOX News reported.
We're here to show the world that they're nothing but a bunch of script kiddies, Hex0010, a 23-year-old member of TeaMp0isoN, said in an exclusive FoxNews.com interview.
Network World reported that a posting by TeaMp0isoN said, the Dutch hackers who claim that LulzSec are not true hackers, are planning to disclose names, addresses and phone numbers of the members of LulzSec.
Lulz Security on Thursday hacked into Arizona Department of Public Safety’s computers and posted a cache of files labeled as training manuals, emails and intelligence documents.
We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 law and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona, said LulzSec.
Spokesman Steve Harrison of the Arizona agency said, the documents appeared to be authentic. He also said that LulzSec accessed them mostly via email accounts of eight officers, WSJ reported.
The Arizona documents include bulletins on wanted suspects from previous years, copies of court filings and a list of street terms for illegal drugs. The documents also include email correspondence and bulletins from other departments and agencies, including a warning about possible retaliatory terrorist attack following the early May killing of Osama bin Laden, the report said.
British police arrested 19-year-old Ryan Cleary on Tuesday, believed to be the LulzSec mastermind who attacked Sony, the US Central Intelligence Agency and the US Senate.
The UK police believe Cleary is part of the inner ring of the LulzSec and that his arrest could give vital leads to the hacker group. But LulzSec insisted that he is not a part of them.
Ryan Cleary is not part of LulzSec; we house one of our many legitimate chatrooms on his IRC server, but that's it, LulzSec tweeted. Clearly the UK police are so desperate to catch us that they've gone and arrested someone who is, at best, mildly associated with us. Lame, the group tweeted.
TeaMp0iso, which is publicly connected to the Palestinian-friendly Mujahideen Hacking Unit”, had attacked Facebook in December, raising doubts about its current good guy status. Also, the group is clearly associated with others which are anti-American and anti-Israel.
However, Hex said that the situation is complicated and hacks were part of a cyberbattle between rival hacking outfits.
TeaMp0isoN claims to avert international governments’ confidential matters to get exposed to hacking.
Hex said the next member of LulzSec is a Californian, whose identity will be revealed soon, along with IP addresses and chat room logs to confirm that the person belongs to LulzSec.
We're going to let them do what they do. Then we're going to do what we do, he told FoxNews.com. We're going to hit them hard.
