LulzSec members revealed by "LulzSec Exposed"?

The antics by LulzSec over the past few weeks may have attracted a bit too much attention, at least for those involved in the group. Their veil of anonymity and fearlessness may be finally crumbling. Some unidentified individuals are taking matters into their own hands, feeding LulzSec a taste of their own medicine - revealing the identities of (suspected) LulzSec members to the world.

A new blog, LulzSec Exposed, began its first day on Blogspot with a mountain of IRC chat logs and personal information for a handful of LulzSec members: Kayla, BarretBrown, Joepie, Nakomis, and Topiary. Of these persons, Topiary admitted to being part of LulzSec via their official Twitter page. Three of these persons are from the United States, while one is from Sweden and one from the Netherlands. Mr. Brown has also contributed to various publications, including the Huffington Post and The Guardian.

Amongst the blog posts, there is also evidence that suggests some of the LulzSec members used to be part of Anonymous, based on similar IRC nicknames they use.

LulzSec has, not surprisingly, mocked the accuracy of the posted information. Despite that, the confident public face they put on while revealing their exploits on their site and in explaining their antics may be one giant facade, as members are being extra cautious thanks to the extra scrutiny they now face from the general public and authorities alike.

Doesn't make sense. I thought there were some obvious signs that these guys were linked to the UK yet none are based in the UK?

This is a false flag act to justify the world government to approve stronger laws regarding internet. In the last couple of years internet has been the medium for protesters to expose their governments trash, to topple tyrants, and divulge government secrets. In order to justify to the world the total control over the internet and the majority of people just take it without much of complain, they needed to create a false flag attack and blame on some group that all of sudden appeared and started threatening the world. First was SONY PlayStation and now a bunch of other sites, including government. Frankly if the government websites are that easy to hack where are all the taxes we pay going to? For me is evident that this is a government covert action, and will be clear to everybody and the laws start to come in place.

If this crap is possible on the current internet and we can't nail the ****ers doing it? Guess what? I support better regulation/identification on the net. I don't care who is ultimately behind it, I just want this bull**** to stop.

Hope LulzSec did this themselves, I quite enjoy watching what they can do. I wonder how many of you enjoy it but sit there bashing them as to not get flamed, yet go and download all the things they leak and follow their every move..hmm...

ya well maybe ill start my own exposed blog and join the Lulsex irc chan and get everyones country code from their ip and post it online ?
Im sure the fbi'z will have in cuffs in minutes lol

irc logs lol gimme a break pathetic

lol, the "proof" link; "without your weapon you are nothing". what a bunch of stupid kids. life is gonna be a hard lesson when they get caught.

I know this is probably too in-depth of thought, but what if LulzSec is behind the blog, pinning "ex" Anonymous members as the ones behind LulzSec?

Well they did **** off Anon last week. so wouldn't be surprised. Finally though. Maybe these overhyped plods will give it a rest now.

hmm i will go with stolen information being used to troll with someones real data and IDs...

not the first time stolen IDs have been used.

I won't jump to conclusions, lulz could just be trolling, but I'm betting if it is them, they're making sure to go after annon or some such, making sure if the Police investigate they will find something and nail them... precived victory as the chaos continues.

Or it's them. *shrug* I wish they'd have gone grayhat instead of actually targeting end-data. This whole thing would be a lot funnier if it didn't end in severe financial and informational damage. Bonfires are fun until they burn the house down, as it were.

That's scary that "Kayla" got his full Social Security number posted on that blog.

I was expecting it to be a girl.

Well we still won't know for sure, so don't get your hopes up just yet people. It doesn't even make sense that one of them would admit to being apart of the group knowing that they hacked the cia.

Criminals talk all the time about their crimes and its how most of them caught by talking to too much.

your completely right!

that's the problem with those types. they simply can't keep their mouths shut and eventually end up talking as they want credit for the hacks etc etc which leads to their demise.

No, that would be the Bubba in prison ...

Why do people keep saying this... Unless they get some terrorism charge they will get to sit out their lives in some white collar min security prison. (Most people have been saying it as jokes but i don't find it that funny(at least be more creative))

Assuming that this isn't lulzec disinformation.

Setting up some random blog, referencing Jester purely to antagonise him and then posting some people's Dox (just to get them targeted for lulz) wouldn't be completely out of character.

That's exactly the kind of thing they would do.
