Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Bethesda Hacked, Details About To Be Leaked

    LulzSec, who have claimed responsibility for many of the gaming hacks of late, have announced they’ve had access to Bethesda/Zenimax’s data for a couple of months, and are planning on releasing details today. They’ve been winding up BethSoft all day, threatening to release details of a number of games, including Brink. However, in their usual way, they are suggesting they’ll go easy on them because “we love Call of Cthulhu.” They rather spuriously suggest this is motivated by a lack of details on Skyrim, but even if they received some, plan “to embarrass you anyway.”


    As usual LulzSec’s Twitter feed is a mixture of taunting boasts and in-fighting with others in the community, but in the mix is the claim that they currently have over 200,000 users’ details. That’s the bit they suggest they might not leak because of the power of 2005′s Cthulhu game, co-published by Bethesda.

    But for some reason the focus of their attack seems to be Brink. Yesterday they warned, “Say your prayers, Brink users.” Seemingly in response to protests from others who pointed out that there’s little argument for their being victims they explained, “If you want ethics, go cry to #Anonymous,” indicating their anarchic motivations are far less politically or socially driven than the Fawkesian crowd. “We did it because they couldn’t stop us,” is the reasoning.

    They explain that they’ve had access to the Bethesda data for a couple of months, but seem to be waiting for a couple more details before they release it all. And then comes the threat just a few minutes ago that if Bethesda gives “everyone more info on Skyrim and we’ll keep the user database to ourselves. However we are going to embarrass you anyway. :D” Then they push their teasing one step further suggesting, “Bethesda, add an official LulzSec top hat to Skyrim and we’ll remove your admin configurations from our incoming leak. Deal?”

    It’s clearly an extremely unpleasant experience for those at Bethesda, and it’s a demonstration of what is behind these hacks: the lulz. Those trying to fathom a pattern, or guess what form of revenge or injustice is behind their motivations needs to understand that no such thing is relevant. It’s not even because it’s found to be funny, nor to prove hacking prowess (although that’s clearly a factor along the way). It’s because they can. Thus, lulz.

    Dru he's not asking for the release date. He's asking if anyone knows how far in advance of the release date the system requirements can be expected.

    I've met and seen some interesting people at PAX and otherwise, but I kinda would like to meet one of these people in person to see if they really are that socially crippled and obnoxious or to see if they're actually rampaging beasts of men capable of feats of athleticism and wonder. Those extremes are the only two options.

    We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds'.

    As assholish and immature as the hackers are, major corporations (especially in a technology related field) should have better fucking security than this.

    Stories like this are at least an amusing read.

    Lulzsorandom is just doing dumb boring shit that makes life mildly inconvenient for some people for short periods of time.

    A FoxNews report on the group quoted one commentator, Brandon Pike, who claimed that Lulz Security is affiliated with the Anonymous group. Lulz Security claimed that Pike had actually hired it to hack PBS. Pike denied the accusation and claims it was leveled against him because he said Lulz Security was a splinter of the Anonymous group.

    I dunno, that's kinda funny

    Greetings Internets,

    This is a story all about how we made Bethesda Softworks, ZeniMax
    Media, and everything they own, our bitch for life.

    As you should know, The Lulz Boat stores vast amounts of booty;
    much of this booty we don't release as it's simply too shiny and/or
    delicious. As of late, certain inferior sailing boats have discovered
    flaws in Brink (brinkthegame.com), thinking themselves exciting and new.

    Too late. The Lulz Boat controls this ocean, chumps.

    Some weeks ago, we smashed into Brink with our heavy artillery Lulz
    Cannons and decided to switch to ninja mode. From our LFI entry point,
    we acquired command execution via local file inclusion of enemy fleet
    Apache vessel. We then found that the HTTPD had SSH auth keys, which
    let our ship SSH into other servers. See where this is going?

    We then switched to root ammunition rounds.
    And we rooted... and rooted... and rooted...

    After mapping their internal network and thoroughly pillaging all of
    their servers, we grabbed all their source code and database passwords,
    which we proceeded to shift silently back to our storage deck.

    Please find enclosed everything we took, excluding one thing -
    200,000+ Brink users. We actually like this company and would
    like for them to speed up the production of Skyrim, so we'll
    give them one less thing to worry about. You're welcome! :D

    Please keep making awesome games, guys, and you should
    totally add an official LulzSec top hat to new releases.

    But anyway, bwahahaha... >:]

    Oh how fucking considerate of them.
    I bet they feel really fucking accomplished hacking out of their moms basement.
