LulzSec Disbands: The Attacks Live On

June 28, 2011 Added by:Andrew Herlands

The Lulzboat Sailed and All I Got Was This Garbage File

June 26, 2011 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

The Kiddies Versus the Adults

June 25, 2011 Added by:Keith Mendoza

Is Your Website at Risk from LulzSec?

June 23, 2011 Added by:Kevin McAleavey

LulzSec: How Not to Run an Insurgency

June 23, 2011 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

LulzSec seems to have misunderstood that secrecy is really really important when you are doing something like a digital insurgency. Sure, you can try to rely on all the technologies like proxies to hide your IP, but, you also have the human element to contend with...

June 21, 2011 Added by:Headlines

“We can have networks that can cause... existential damage without a nation-state involved. With the confluence of globalization and technology, these groups now have the ability to cause the kind of damage that used to involve national effort. We got a taste of this on 9/11..."

In the case of LulzSec and Anonymous, they are using many types of systems to protect their anonymity. With the right tools and obfuscation techniques, they feel impervious to attacks, be it from law enforcement or the likes of The Jester. Tactically, they have the advantage in many ways...
