Just like there’s no honor among thieves, there’s no honor among hackers, with fights between rival hacking factions becoming increasingly commonplace. Two hackers decided to turn on LulzSec and reveal who they were, but instead have apparently been exposed.
In a Pastebin post, LulzSec explained that the two hackers allegedly tried to “snitch on [them]”, and so LulzSec took revenge. LulzSec boasted to the FBI “& other law enforcement clowns”, saying: “we just did your job for you with great ease”. The first alleged hacker, was named as Marshal Webb, who they claim was “involved in the hacking of the game “[Deus] Ex” and was/is involved in countless other cybercrimes.”
They also name “one of his [alleged] associates, Michael Dean Major, or “Hann””, who they claim is “also wanted for some pretty heavy stuff”. LulzSec finished their statement by saying that “these goons begged us for mercy”, but “there is no mercy on The Lulz Boat. Snitches get stitches”. It is not known whether the individuals are guilty of the crimes LulzSec claims, as it could be some form of elaborate joke, but if not, the information could be a great help for the FBI and other agencies tasked with the tough job of tracking down the cyber-criminals. Additionally, if arrested, they may even be able to shed some light on LulzSec’s true identities.
Arrested yesterday, Ryan Cleary’s identity was also leaked by a hacker group – that time Anonymous – helping show that hacker’s worst enemies are often each other.
