    Lulzsec releases list of passwords and email addresses

    http://gizmodo.com/5812530/lulzsec-l...net-goodie-bag

    You may want to download the list yourself if only to see if any of your addresses are on it...and even if they aren't, you may consider changing some passwords anyway. From the way they make it sound, they have far more than they're releasing right now.

    Just downloaded the list and didn't see myself or anyone I know on there, so that's a relief. Fuckwits is right. Let's hope the carnage is limited to fairly innocuous hacks (like Facebook) and that people don't lose money out of their bank accounts because of this shit.

    If you click on Lulzsec on their twitter, and then click on More Tweets from lulsec, then do a search for the word Mediafire, the second hit for mediafire is the link.

    On Luls twitter page, I do not see a More Tweets from lulsec button. I do not have an account, so I don't know if this means i need to be signed in to have that option.

    Jorune

    ps. Can someone pm me the link and/or list?

    No problem guys.

    F-Secure CRO is saying that the list is likely a database of users of writerspace.com

    Just to see how recent/valid this is, I tried a random few logins, from the middle of the pack, on both gmail and a couple of smaller services. None were valid, so either this is an old list or the services have rapidly responded.

    That makes sense as a whole ton of people have 'writerspace' or a variant thereof as their password. As usual, the real danger is to people who reused their passwords for other, more important sites.

    If they're smart and maintain their anonymity, they'll never be caught. They have to mess up first. Usually one guy can't resist bragging to his friends, then one of those friends tells someone else, and then the feds are knocking on the door looking to cut a deal.

    If it's actually just one guy, which is very possible, he may have the ability to keep his mouth shut.

    Doesn't matter how crap the password is if they don't have your username. Maybe a little, but the combination of the two being secret is what keeps you secure on a bank site, not just the password.

    Just to add to this, at least I didn't see, from the first two pages, anyone's password being 'password'.

    I am actually surprised at how hard it would be to guess the passwords from the username.

    From a quick grep, there are 132 entries that are just 'password', and another 15 that are a slight variation thereof (including one 'ihatepasswords').

    Edit: What's interesting is that the last part of the file, where the passwords are last on the line, doesn't contain a single 'password' entry or the 'writerspace' mentioned earlier, so it seems like that part might come from a different source than the others.

    132 out of 59,000+? About 1 in 500?

    I guess that's not as good as I thought it was originally.
