Hackers are hacking. Sony, unfortunately, can’t catch a break. “Hello , Iam Idahc a Lebanese hacker. I was Bored and I play the game of the year: ‘hacker vs Sony.’” The new popular kid on the block is LulzSec. He or they even have a Twitter account to taunt LulzSec’s hapless victims and spread LULZ. LulzSec claims to have hacked an FBI-affiliated organization called InfraGard. LulzSec recently hacked a PBS and posted a fake news story reporting that Tupac Shakur was alive and living in New Zealand. LulzSec also steals and makes public passwords and other personal data. Sony confirmed that it was breached by LulzSec this week. The most ominous recent hacking incident involved defense contractor Lockheed Martin using the now compromised RSA SecureID system, which was regarded as the ‘gold standard” for Internet security. The perpetrator of that hack has yet to be identified.
