FBI caught two alleged members of LulzSec and Anonymous, while one is still at large.

The FBI reportedly caught two people who are accused of being members of the popular group of hackers, LulzSec and Anonymous. The Justice Department suggests charges have also been filed against a third suspect, while search warrants were released and executed at separate locations in New Jersey, Minnesota and Montana.

According to a report from Fox News, one of the two arrested suspects – a 23-year-old from Phoenix – was charged with conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer. The said charge followed an SQL injection attack at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

While the other one – a 47-year-old from Mountain View, California – stands accused of conspiracy to cause intentional damage to a protected computer, and aiding and abetting. A third suspect was accused of the same list of charges, though the 26-year-old Ohio resident remains at large.

Comments Off

NBC's Twitter account was hacked by Script Kiddies, falsely reporting that a plain crashed on ground zero in New York.

Hacker group – Script Kiddies – attacked the Twitter account of the NBC News, falsely reporting that an airliner crashed down into the Ground Zero in New York. The said group nfiltrated NBC’s Twitter account on Friday evening with the first message showing up on Twitter at 5:48pm.

After NBC requested Twitter to temporarily shut down its account, chief digital officer – Vivian Schiller – released a statement regarding the said incident on her Twitter account. She tweeted on Sunday morning that the NBC News Twitter account is back in their control.

Script Kiddies is the same group who hacked Fox News’ account early on the morning of July 4, and released a false report that President Obama was assassinated. The group is currently under investigation by the FBI, as NBC News reported on its Today news website on Saturday morning.

Talking on how the hackers gained access to NBC Twitter account, the network admitted that one of their employee clicked a malicious email attachment that might have allowed the Script Kiddies to get their password — which is only in the hands of the company’s three executives.

Written on July 22, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Hacker groups, Anonymous & LulzSec, spoke sharply against FBI.

Two of the biggest hacker groups to date – Anonymous and LulzSec – recently publicized a statement counteracting the FBI’s actions against them. The said allegation is issued directly to FBI Deputy Assistant Director, Steve Chabinsky, who pushed for the seizing of almost 16 Anonymous members last Wednesday.

“We want to send a message that chaos on the Internet is unacceptable,” Steve Chabinsky affirmed, “[even if] hackers can be believed to have social causes, it’s entirely unacceptable to break into websites and commit unlawful acts.”

FBI: Fake Bin Laden Video Is a Virus

Written on May 04, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Osama Bin Laden just won’t depart this life – when even after death the world’s probably most-hated terrorist remains a public nuisance in the form of a computer virus.

With news on Osama Bin Laden’s death flooding the World Wide Web, most specially the social media, the FBI is now warning people not to open unsolicited links or emails claiming to show videos or photos of the Al-Qaeda boss’ killing, as these could be a computer virus.

In an interview with PC World last Tuesday, security vendor F-Secure said that they’ve spotted the first samples of malicious software disguised as photos of the dead Al Qaeda leader and that criminals are allegedly e-mailing a password-stealing Trojan horse program called Banload to victims. Symantec also told PC World that it’s seen criminals spamming victims with links to fake “Osama dead” news articles that launch Web-based attacks on visitors.
