LulzSec Reborn, Hacks Into Military Dating Site, CSS Corp.

Earlier this month, LulzSec members were betrayed by their own leader and arrested by the FBI. It seemed that the group's reign of virtual terror -- which blew in like a hurricane and then seemingly fizzled out just as quickly -- was over, giving way to reigning hactivist champ Anonymous.

But now there's a group who have decided to pick up where the previous LulzSec group left off, and is now calling themselves LulzSecReborn. Their first victim was military dating site MilitarySingles.com which they hacked, retrieving the information of 170,937 accounts. Now the email addresses, passwords and other information of lonely, single soldiers simply looking for love is available for anyone to download.

"We at ESingles Inc. are aware of the claim that someone has hacked MilitarySingles.com and are currently investigating the situation," the company behind the website stated. "At this time there is no actual evidence that MilitarySingles.com was hacked and it is possible that the Tweet from Operation Digiturk is simply a false claim."

Naturally LulzSecReborn laughed at their comment, and pointed to this link via Twitter. It shows a white page stored on the MilitarySingles website offering one small message: "lulz is sb."

After posting a Pastebin announcement leading to the MilitarySingles data dump link, the group then hacked into CSS Corp, a global information and communications technology company. They broke through the walls of the main domain's server and leaked the entire database which included email addresses, names, passwords, user IDs and usernames.

"And admins from CSS Corp I know that you are smarter than the others please don't search for proof we will delete your whole database," the group threatened via Twitter.

Previous reports indicated that LulzSec would make a comeback on April 1, but their recent actions have proven that's not the case. In fact, they're not too sure who is planning an attack on April Fool's, but it's not LulzSecReborn.

So who is behind this new resurrection? Softpedia cites sources who say the new group comprises of veteran hackers who have been known to breach important sites. Currently there are no members of the original LulzSec present in the new group.

"The idea is to continue what some have started and never managed to finish," one of the hackers stated. "At the same time we want to avenge the ones that were arrested."

Will another LulzSec group rise from the ashes on Sunday, April 1? It would be interesting to see how two LulzSec groups could co-exist, if at all.

    Whoever did this are hiding behind a secret identity (LulzSec), or whatever group did this, but they turn around and expose innocent peoples personal info to the public. What an embarrassment and fail to decency and humanity.

    . Ummm, I would think they would backup their database every night, just like any other company. I would think any hacker would know that. So, that would be pointless on the hackers part. I don't see them being around that long. Go back in your parents basement and play some more xbox or playstation!!

    This is terrible... The life of an enlisted soldier is not easy, especially w.r.t. having a normal relationship when you are being deployed for months to a year at a time. Many soldiers joined with good intentions to serve their country. Other did it for the benefits, e.g. pay for school, provide for family, etc... A dating site for military personnel might sound funny to a civilian, but if you think about it, it probably serves a real need. pharoahhalfdead is absolutely right, this is a failure of human decency. These people should be ashamed of themselves.

    Good job, using an overused internet cliche to attempt and "insult" him. Please.

    Once again all those repeated hacks shows how much the corporations are lacking when it com,es to protect peoples private data... and even during all this they want to roll out the cloud more than ever. Shows how serious they take our information!
