      Ohhhh chit!!!!! We all have sony to thank for all this. Sony got the attention of the hacking world. Lulz said in a tweet a week or 2 back if they touch sega they would hit sony again!
      Looks like who ever "they" where. Actually did and judging from this lulz is after them.

      You know somewhere in the world a employee of sega, epic, and bethosda and the devs of eve etc etc etc... are saying "thanks alot sony".

      I could imagine someone at Sega going: "I HATE THAT HACKER!"

      1. Yeah but gaming was never a focal point. There has always been hacker in gaming. There has always been gamers who are hackers. But when sony waged war with hackers they not only got those hackers, they got non gaming hackers. Now it seems other hackers are hacking gaming to get at lulzsec for hacking sony.
      2. Sony is the key element in it all. If we took out what sony did going to war with geohot and those other guys. All this may never have happened.
      3. I wonder if lulzsec when they hacked nintendo actually helped nintendo avoid being hacked by others? In any case, its not even shocking any more.

      Oh boy... I mean at this point I just don´t understand how these companies aren´t taking a step back and analyzing their security. Hacking sites is the new ¨in thing¨ so do yourselves, and us, a favor and update your damn security.

      About LULZ counterattacking whoever attacked sega... this is going to start getting really ugly.

      They already have, when they passed some cyber terrorism laws way back. Thats really when I got out of the whole hacking scene myself. I used to spend hours a day on blackbox and other web pages. I even did some of my own custom stuff and was on the news at one point for causing a massive outage for a pretty big ISP.I won't be more specific on the details sorry I kind of like my freedom so if you want to call me a liar feel free, better to be known a BS artist and liar then that dude that went to jail for doing that thing.

      The one bit of information I will give is that I reeeaally enjoyed creating my own custom sets of packets to exploit flaws that servers used in TCP and that I also was doing this in a time when you could spoof an IP address. Shame they filter that stuff so well these days.

      Don't get me wrong I still like to read up on the stuff, but my days of actually doing things like what is happening to Sony and other companies is long gone.

      Ok enough is enough. In defense of hacker's which I am not the only voice. These kids who are doing the latest hack's found a ddos program online. Started hacking server's just for kicks. People think its a big hacking group. However in truth it's probably some little kid on a dell doing it. Cause he think's he is so cool. please real hacker's wouldnt bother with Sega of all people.

      One correction for your post is that DDOS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. Distributed meaning more then one PC, usually its a syn/ack or ping flood or open sockets attack. You cannot steal information with a DDOS.

      The term you are looking for is script kiddies, they do not write the stuff but they know how it works and how to use it. Almost everyone who is a real hacker started there and worked up from that.

      infact most script kiddies dont have a clue about what they are doing, they just find tutorals on n00btube
      and make out they are super leet. understanding excatly what you are doing and how the processes are woking is what makes a difference.

      other hacker hacked sega to piss off lulzsec? what do you think of this lulzec exposed on blogspot? http://lulzsecexposed.blogspot.com/

      they admitted on twitter they are fans of the dreamcast and the n64, so i thought they would be in the beginning or the mid 20s. seems i was'nt that wrong if the infos are right. one of them is a zelda fan, maybe they are fanboys as that is the reason for hacking sony and game companies like bethesda, epic, bioware and eidos, that don't make big games for nintendo.

      one of them is a journalist and writer, according to lulzec excposed. many emails and password released are leaked from a writerspace.com http://www.thehackernews.com/2011/06/lulzsec-leaks-62000-emailpasswords-of.html so this was eventually some sort of sick revenge action. i know there are many writers that can't stand if someone criticizes them.

      funny is, he wrote some anon/sony news, on which you can clearly see his point:
      http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/jan/27/anonymous-internet
      http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/may/06/anonymous-sony

      other funny thing is: I always thought hackers don't expose their information on facebook and similar sites.

      are hackers fanboys that hack companies the rival groups love or is there more behind it? this guy seems to be at war with not only jihadists and wikileaks but also lulzsec:

      ... um you do realize they already stated that they like nintendo a few weeks ago... when they HACKED them. Personally I think everybody is just too focused into making these guys fanboys of one company or another; maybe people feel they have to associate them (lulzsec) with the petty console wars to understand why they are doing things.

      People are acting as if hacking was just invented with events. Anyways, the sooner we stop imposing our own values on their actions, the better.

      did you read my post? they hacked companies that don't want to make games for nintendo. now, if that doesn't tell something about them.

      they don't do it for the lulz like they said, or for the anarchy. be another hacker and touch things they like, they're speakin very different.

      they're nintendo/sega fanboys. they spoke of n64 and dc, that means they're missed the snes/genesis era. the one guy clearly has likes oot as best zelda game not alttp

      and no, these are not our own values. I'm not a fanboy of anything and no hater, and I haven't the urge to harm other people by hacking. Most normal people are. People like LulzSec are childish in the inside.

      people have to stop seeing hackers as some superhumans or masterminds. they're not. they're human beings like all of us with all the strengths and weaknesses. and every human being has motivations to do the things he/she does.

      So, the Nintendo Fanboy clearly has a grudge against sony. ps1 smashed n64 and the dc, ps2 ate the last pieces of the dc. It's written history. You have to take things how they happen, things that you cannot take influence. the times for nintendo got better.

      but for some people this isn't enough. the poor fanboy heart is hurt and seeking for revenge. How far will you go to achieve your goals and get your satisfaction? some people don't know where the line is.

      the journalist. Journalists tend to write not only for the monthly paycheck, they want to make the world a better place. or what they think would be a better place. He is clearly pro wikileaks and contra sony and maybe his writing hasn't pulled enough people to his opinion. so there goes the hacking.

      so, these people don't hack because they want to know how far they come. they're not the type who wants to be the best hacker out there. maybe these hackers exist, but Lulzsec are not one of those.

      but what you can see: they're very self-centered, feeling very secure, feeling what they do is the right thing or what has to be done. they're clearly have no objective sight of things.

      but children tend to grow up, learn what respect means and that they're not the center of the world. and still can play fun games.

      without respect for each other, social life won't work. I find it very sad when someone use the word "disabled" to give someone a bad name, like Lulzsec does.
