The hacking group LulzSec is at it again, now reportedly releasing 62000 potential Facebook passwords. When Sony’s PlayStation Network (PSN) got hacked it seems to have been the catalyst for a whole new wave of hacks and attacks, does anybody think that online security went downhill from there?
LulzSec now crosses the line between your “online” and “real” lives. LulzSec, the hacker group behind the attacks on Sony’s PSN that rendered it offline, is reported to have released over 62000 Facebook, Xbox Live and PayPal passwords. That is if you have the same passwords for different accounts, which most people do.
A Twitter post by LulzSec said, “Envelope yourself in the sickening realization that you secretly love f–king someone’s Facebook life beyond repair.” The post includes the 62000 user names and passwords and the group encourages people to log in and just mess things up. The passwords are readily available online to anyone who wants to access them, not sure we’d morally approve of you doing so though.
Do you think the government should find better ways to track LulzSec down?
