LulzSec Posts Names Of Two Snitching Hackers

Yesterday evening, Lulzsec published the details of what it calls two jackasses who, the entity claims, provided details to the authorities which may have led to the arrest of Ryan Clearly, a former member of collective hacking conscience, Anonymous.

The group posted on its Twitter account: "tl;dr they leaked logs, we owned them, one of them literally started crying for mercy, we saw it fit to pastebin their home addresses" before adding "Remember this tweet, m_nerva, for I know you'll read it: your cold jail cell will be haunted with our endless laughter. Game over, child".

M_nerva is the username for hacker Marshal Webb whose address has been revealed on Pastebin together with other aliases, instant-message screen names, IP-addresses and phone number.

In the statement entitled "Snitches getting various stitches", Lulzsec tells the "FBI & other law enforcement clowns" that both guys were involved in the hacking of the game "Deus Ex" as well as "countless other cybercrimes" and did try to flee the country in order to avoid serious punishments.

In a veiled warning to those who might potentially snitch on them, Lulz Security added that "These goons begged us for mercy after they apologized to us all night for leaking some of our affiliates' logs. There is no mercy on The Lulz Boat." before ending with a stern "Snitches get stitches".

Yesterday, the London Metropolitan Police in conjunction with with the PCeU and the FBI, arrested Ryan Clearly who Lulzsec said was not involved directly with the group although they did admit using his IRC server.
