LulzSec hacks SpecialForces.com

LulzSec has apparently executed a hack and extract operation against military merchant SpecialForces.com. 



According to the hacker group, the SpecialForces customer base is primarily comprised of military and law enforcement affiliated individuals who have "for too long" enjoyed purchasing tactical combat equipment for use against civilians.

"What's that, officer? You get a kick out of pepper-spraying peaceful protesters in public parks? You like to recreationally taser kids? You have a fetish for putting people in plastic zip ties?" a LulzSec communiqué asked rhetorically.

"SpecialForces.com was just no match for our hella wicked black hat voodoo. We were quickly able to break back into the military supplier's server and steal their encryption keys. We then wrote a few simple functions to recover the cleartext passwords, credit card numbers, and expiration dates to all their customers' cards. That's how we roll."

Interestingly enough, the actual pwnage seemed to have occurred some time ago, as LulzSec claims it has been been in possession of approximately 14,000 passwords and 8,000 credit cards for the past few months. 



The group also pledged to have a "merry LulzXmas" at the expense of "capitalist pigs, corrupt public officials" and third parties who cater to the "continued oligarchic elite" worldwide. 


"We are your secretaries, your janitors, your babysitters, your IT guys, your bus drivers, your maids, your hard-working, driven and determined fellow humans.

"We could be sitting next to you in a coffee shop, scanning your goods at a department store or even fixing your busted-ass computer. We are here to stay, and by now, you had better damn well expect us, cause the time for simple ‘lulz’ is long past."
