Have some of the members of the LulzSec hacking group, behind website attacks against Sony, the CIA, the U.S. Senate, and others now been publicly named?

On Saturday, an anonymous post made to document-sharing website Pastebin named names, alleging that the core members of LulzSec are Sweden-based Daniel Ackerman Sandberg (aka Topiary), Iowa-based Wesley Bailey (aka Laurelai), New York-based EE or Eekdacat (no name, but an IP address provided), Britain-based Richard Fontaine (aka Uncommon), Hector Xavier Monsegur (Sabu), and Netherlands-based Sven Slootweg (aka Joepie91), amongst others.

We spoke with Chris Sather, Product Management for Network Defense at McAfee about McAfee's next generation firewalls that analyze relationships and not protocols.The document's authors--who call themselves the A-Team--provided contact information for most of those people, though they said that they still lacked detailed information on LulzSec's leader, Sabu, as well as Kayla, who appeared to provide most of the botnets used in the group's attacks. The A-Team also alleged that Kayla was behind the Anonymous group's attack against HBGary as well.

There was no response to emails sent to Bailey, Fontaine, and Slootweg at the addresses provided in the Pastebin post.

Discover how to detect threats from Adobe's PDF format. Some of those handles and identities, however, had already been matched in anonymously posted documents, beginning in early June. According to LulzSec watchers, the leaking of chat logs led to at least two active members departing the group.

Related law enforcement investigations are apparently underway. For example, a group called Backtrace Security has been hunting for LulzSec members since February, and assisting an FBI investigation since March, according to The New York Times. Backtrace Security has also published a roundup of LulzSec members' profiles and apparent motivations.

About...damn...time!

Did anybody ever seriously think for one minute it would turn out otherwise? It was only a matter of time.

The problem with all these hacks, malicious or whatever stuff is ultimately the weak and poor suffer or at the very least they see no benefit. Embarrassing some web designer or security specialist is so 'meh', it's not like the politician, head of CIA, etc designed the website or wrote the security code...

In the end it plays into the hands of those who argue for even greater restrictions and surveillance.

First rule of street combat: Hit hard, hit fast, hit decisively - and end it.

Because if you don't completely take down your opponent with your first blow, there's a very good chance you won't get a second punch in.
