* mentions HBGary a lot
* focuses on people who have been previously associated with the HBGary hack
* shows special disdain for kayla and sabu & seems to be personally offended
* likes to link people to their social networking profiles
* only non-skiddie name mentioned is Barr's
* obviously works (worked?) in infosec
* previously in the military? (ALPHA MIKE FOXTROT = Adios Mother Fuckers)
So a "bug" in a HDD would just hear all of the fascinating conversation that takes place in an evidence locker.
1) The timeline in the beginning is incorrect. #11 shows Laurelai was part of the HBGary attack. Yet in the #hq logs, Sabu had no idea who Laurelai was (and raged on him/her pretty hard).
2) Kayla is the only member that the A Team does not dox. However, the Laurelai/NA conversation contains a reference to the Xyrix = Kayla idea (which is referenced in many other places). Xyrix' denials are weak.
If I were you I would be laying low instead of registering on every site discussing you and writing stuff like this. Specifically to HN we don't really care about intra-kiddie drama and if you are genuinely considering legal action you've already screwed your case in a lot of ways.
Also, I find the 'MingW32' version string to be somewhat interesting.
A friend of mine a long time ago back in the 90s beat one of these things because they didn't have a warrant. Cops came to his parents place while he was out. Parent's let them in, they found a bunch of telco manuals, seized the computers, everything in the room was inadmissible because he was renting the room from his parents. He was a lucky guy. He also stopped bitching that his parents made him start paying rent.
They admit in the document to "backhacking" the targets, which already puts them at an advantage against law enforcement.

From 5 days, "were releasing everything" and telling the president to wear a shoe on his head and they would quit.
To, this is 50th day, have some junk, we're out!!
No honour amongst thieves eh.
Reddit has rules against posting personal information. Does this website not? I really have little interest in websites that think it's ok to spread people's personal data. Weren't we mad at Sony and Lulzsec for allowing that sort of thing to happen?
I agree the childish aspect of it all is amusing, but it's not unexpected.
What does the author mean by bounce in the document, take over a machine and proxy themselves with it? I'm confused.
I suppose it can also encompass alternative ways of hiding your IP by going through separate machines, but I think the author of the document would have said so explicitly considering he's used proper terminology elsewhere ("vpn", "proxy").
Until we get some arrests I wouldn't be particularly excited over this.
Used in some consumer embedded gear running linux.
or maybe not?

edit: desides? How old is the author, I wonder? It all sounds very 'schoolyard'.
Welcome to "hacking."
Cause the age of your HN account = "hacker cred", right? How dare he talk back to an elder!
Regardless, xtal's statement about hacker culture is accurate.
Some day you'll discover alt accounts, and on that day you will feel like a god.
My original account on HN is over 1500 days old now. I left that and used another which is about 800 days old for awhile. Now I'm shii and a few other people for a little while longer.
But the information is inexorably tied with my identity, so I've concluded it's more prudent to have secrets and to allow the vocal uninformed to remain ignorant. In the end, it doesn't matter, and they probably wouldn't believe you anyway.
1. The gross miss spelling in the post
2. That Mr Barr could not catch somewhat beginner hackers
"Misspelling" is the word you're looking for.
Usually I'm not a grammar nazi (english isn't my first language so I understand the curse of engrish) but this is just annoying to read.
The problem with these tards is that they lack the discretion to find interesting problems to tackle. So: they pick on weaklings like Sony.
Real grown-ups find good problems to solve and, well, solve them. A lot of those guys profit from them.
I hope that the lolsec guys eventually realize that there's more to gain from helping the world than from hurting it.
It is a problem, sure.
LulzSec is doing their level best to solve that problem
No, they're just committing random acts of vandalism.
This kind of mob-trolling behavior is not ok, and prosecuting perpetrators to the full extend of the law ought to set a nice example.
I'm all for free speech, and blowing the whistle. But this is much too far, and honestly, anarchy isn't any better than a police state.
