LulzSec Strikes Again, Targets Porn Sites

The notorious hacker group Lulz Security continues to make it to the news with yet another attack on a bunch of widely used websites and stealing thousands of usernames and passwords.

LulzSec, which has recently breached into a couple of really high-profile websites belonging to PBS and Sony, this time broke into 55 porn sites, and dumped their administrative emails and passwords. The group also claimed to have stolen almost 26,000 of usernames and passwords from the website Pron.com.

“Hi! We like porn (sometimes), so these are email/password combinations from pron.com which we plundered for the lulz,” the group bragged on its website Lulzsecurity.com.

However, those stolen email addresses cannot be used for accessing the victims’ accounts, because of an additional layer of protection offered by the breached site. But still, the stealing and posting the personal information on public forum violates the victims’ privacy right.

The group also did not forget to highlight 6 email ids that used military or government accounts (.mil and .gov accounts) for sign up.

With these unrelenting attacks on various networks, targeting institutions as well as, individuals, LulzSec has certainly emerged as a major threat for online security.
