A hacker known as The Jester claims to have revealed the identity of a LulzSec member who may be the groups leader.
Thirty-year-old Xavier Kaotico, also known as Xavier de Leon or sabu, has been outed as the hacker prankster groups leader, though his role and involvement with LulzSec has not been confirmed. The man allegedly lives or has recently lived in New York City, and is an independant IT consultant specializing in Python programming, Linux development, network security and exploit development.
LulzSec, a small group of hackers that has become the focus of the international technology media over the past few weeks, has claimed responsibility for carrying out a number of malicious breaches. Recent LulzSec targets include Web sites belonging to Sony, Citigroup, the CIA and the U.S. Senate.
After a public spat between the two high-profile hacker groups, LulzSec united with Anonymous Operations to wage a cyber war against the U.S. government, stating, Sitting pretty on cargo bays full of corrupt booty, they think its acceptable to condition and enslave all vessels in sight.

If found guilty, hang him.
We will all pay a steep price in terms of net regulations because of him.

Script kiddies......if you want to see REAL hacking check out Stuxnet.
Pranksters? Hacking the Arizona DPS computer and putting the names, addresses and SSNs of individual officers on the net is a prank?
That’s the Big Leagues alright, WOW
A Spaniard, I imagine...actually, I have always thought that the “Anonymous” mask the anarchists and “anti-globalization” crowd is fond of wearing at their riots looks exactly like Rodriguez Zapatero (radical-left sort-of-former Spanish presidente).
I think Zabu was the name of some vicious sci-fi beast. These guys are a bunch of dweebs who make themselves feel powerful by destroying people from afar.
I’m beyond fed up with this crap. IMO hackers should be treated exactly as horse thieves were treated in the Old West!
It is supposed to be a modern rendition of Guy Fawkes.
As excited as Stateside security guys and Net cops are getting over these script kiddies, I'd like to see them improve their bid by doing something moderately to grievously serious about those Chinese PLA hacker/crackers who are raising hell with USG nets and corporate systems.
Thanks, I wasn’t sure what it was. I has appeared a lot recently in the demonstrations by the so-called “indignados” in Spain, but I’ve also seen it in photos of the Greek riots and other places.

Works for me.
Revenge of the Nerds?
