The famous hacking group LulzSec, a friendly group to Anonymous hactivits after laying low for more than a month, particularly since the arrest of infamous leader of the group Sabu, broke the silence already by exposing the accounts of nearly 171,000 members of the military people. It’s actually a dating site for people working on military called MilitarySingles.com, into which the LulzSec broke into.
The group also claimed that he database on server including a total of 170,937 email accounts belongs to MilitarySingles.com were dumped. “We have enacted a series of security procedures in response,” said Robert Goebel, CEO of ESingles Inc., to NYTimes that. “Regardless of whether it was a true claim or false claim, we’re treating it as though it’s true just to be safe.” ESingles Inc., is the parent company that owns MilitarySingles.com, which first rejected the claiming of LulzSec group about their site being hacked. Later, to prove them that they are doomed, LulzSec group leaked a link that pointed to a webpage hosted on MilitarytSingles.com, saying “LulzSec is SB,Fuck!” and nothing else. It made it clear that the site was prone to attack.
Again the story reached a contradictory point when Goebel explained that there were only 140,000 members on their site and wonder how LulzSec could dump nearly 171,000 members account. While on one side the LulzSec group successfully hacking and dumping the user accounts of a site for military people, on the other side six hackers including Milton Corniell David Jimenez, Juan Rafael Leonardo Acosta, Cristian de la Rosa Jose de los Santos, Robert Reynoso Delgado linked to Anonymous were arrested by Dominican Republic police. These hackers were arrested for allegedly hacking the government and private organization websites and were accused in the name of cyber terrorism.
According to my sources, there were no evidence proving the hacking activities and that was really absurd. Because, lately the number of people arrested for hacking activities getting increased without any proper evidence or even any base conspiracy to back their arrests. I don’t know, may be my 80-year-old grandma can get arrested planning a cyber attack over any government one day for landing on some website or chat rooms without even her knowledge. I’m not kidding, it’s sure looks like we were heading on that way only.
Final Note: If you or the persons you know are a member of MilitarySigles.com, then make sure to change your password on the site and if you were reusing that password for any other site, then change them too and tell your friends to do so too.
