Codemasters Hacked

Recommended Posts

The media isn't very bright, is it?

Listen at the beginning. She says they are tagging "No-S-E-C," whatever the hell that is.

Totally clueless. All they had to do was use the Google. The Wikipedia page for "Antisec Movement" has been up for two years:

http://www.google.com/search?aq=f&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=google+maps#sclient=psy&hl=en&source=hp&q=antisec&aq=f&aqi=g-z1g4&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=b

No, the media isn't too bright. "Mastermind" is a great word, though. I'm sure they couldn't wait to use it. Wish we still had news organizations.

Battlefield Heroes just went offline. And I just done so well! -O-

Took an hour or so until they released some real info and stopped me from thinking it was a problem on my end...

Battlefield Heroes is Offline

We are currently investigating an apparent security breach related to our free-to-play Battlefield Heroes franchise. We are working to identify which accounts were affected and will take all precautions to ensure those players are notified as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have the game back online shortly.

I kinda hate how all breaches are just termed as "hacking". It would help to just tell what's really up, serious infiltration or just a denial of service thingado.

Yesterday the BBC published and interview with someone from Lulz Security

Now they are running the story that the group has announced an end to their cyber attacks

Perhaps they began to understand that, if you get enough people angry at you, bad things can happen. I imagine we'll see this cycle repeat in roughly six months.

No doubt. If it won't be the same group or people, it will be people inspired by these actions. Fame and attention draw in more flies than money and honey after all.

Yesterday one of the emailaddresses I used on codemasters has been used to register an battle.net account using a chinese name. I thought they didn't get into codemasters account system? The emailaddress is too random to guess but not too random to randomly type in ( 8)7 ), and I have not received any spam on it. It's just this 1 emailaddress that has been used to create a battle.net account. Any one else had something similar?

I've been finding Blizzard emails referring to battlenet in my spam folder for *ages*. It's something that never stops. Interestingly though, not a single one has actually been sent to the email address I actually used when I opened a battlenet account many moons ago.
