LulzSec Offers Its Services To SEGA


One of the primary suspects in the recent hacking of the SEGA Pass database has come forward—not to claim responsibility for the attack, but to offer its services in punishing those who are responsible.

Lulz Security, or LulzSec, has been behind attacks on Nintendo, Bethesda Softworks, and a number of Sony sites. The “hacktivist” group has also been suspected of hacking Epic Games and Codemasters, in addition to their confirmed security breaches of government websites. Regarding the SEGA hack, however, LulzSec tweeted on June 17:

“Sega – contact us. We want to help you destroy the hackers that attacked you. We love the Dreamcast, these people are going down.”

This is an apparent denial of culpability in the SEGA Pass hack from a group that has never been shy about taking credit for its work and demonstrating the truth of those claims. LulzSec’s tweet seems to indicate that there is at least one other group following on their heels and intruding into gaming-related sites.
