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.

We will all pay a steep price in terms of net regulations because of him.

Pranksters? Hacking the Arizona DPS computer and putting the names, addresses and SSNs of individual officers on the net is a prank?

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.

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.
