Yesterday it was reported that Sabu had turned against his hacker community by working with the FBI. As a result, six key members of LulzSec have been arrested. In response, Anonymous has posted an open letter to Sabu on a website it hacked.
Forbes reports that the hacker collective attacked the website of antivirus firm Panda Security, accusing the company of working with law enforcement agencies to help arrest 25 hackers in February. But the most interesting part of the hack is an open message to Sabu:
“Yeah yeah, we know, Sabu snitched on us. As usually happens FBI menaced him to take his sons away. We understand, but we were your family too. (Remember what you liked to say?)… It’s sad and we can’t imagine how it feels having to look at the mirror each morning and see there the guy who shopped their friends to police.”
Amusingly, earlier in the day, Panda Security researcher Luis Corrons blogged about the Sabu saga, writing that from this point, Anonymous would only be capable of simple denial of service attacks. In response to that comment, Anonymous posted:
“LOL HE ASKED FOR THE LULZ!!!! HERE IT IS THE LULZ… Pandasecurity.com, better known for its shitty ANTIVIRUS WE HAVE BACKDOORED, has [been] earning money working with law enforcement to lurk and snitch on anonymous activists…yep we know about you. How does it feel to be the spied one?”
Looks like Sabu’s collusion with the FBI isn’t slowing things down. [Forbes]
