No – quotes, no videos for now……
As some are aware a kind citizen sent me a link today to the following pastebin post. http://pastebin.com/5NJXfbVw For the purposes of posterity I have pasted it verbatim below.
Why do I care?
It represents only 2 scenarios.
Scenario One – It’s misinformation.
Why this scenario? – Well for whatever reason ‘somebody’ wants to protect the subject of my previous blog post of over 2 months old thus proving the post to be accurate.
It’s actually a record of the embryonic formation of what calls itself ‘lulzsec’Â (excuse me for lulzing).
Misinformation, information, or no information…. it’s all the same to me because information is information.
@lulzsec – make no mistake, I will find out which scenario is correct.
Here’s Original pastebin dump that was sent to me earlier today: (http://pastebin.com/5NJXfbVw)
And for preserved for posterity – below:
Subject: LulzSec Evidence on member “Nakomis”
“Nakomis” maintained the twitter “real_j35t3r” for AnonOps during a secret Operation called “Unmask”. IRC logs from this invite only channel show Sabu, Topiary, Barrett Brown, and Nakomis were all trying to find out who “The Jester (th3j35t3r)” was.
The picture above shows what looks to be an individual with a name tag printed “Jester”. Upon the unearthing of this image, the group members found the mans name to be “Casey Gardiner”, living in Southern California. After looking over his linkedin account and facebook, he seemed to fit as a match to Jester.
Topiary created the real_j35t3r twitter account as well as the hushmail email associated with it. From what records show, Nakomis took this over quite quickly and began tormenting th3j35t3rs followers and supporters.
Barrett Brown and Sabu calm that Casey’s email was breached during the month of March of 2011 and started monitoring incoming and outgoing mail ([email protected]). Nakomis claimed during this time, he befriended Casey on facebook and had began engaging in conversations about tennis and music.
During the beginning of April 2011, Nakomis was contacted by a fake reporter who turned out to be th3j35t3r himself.
Full details can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/6gq8ykl
Nakomis told the secret group about the reporter at the beginning of April 2011. Barrett contacted Nakomis and told him that they should give out the dox info during the interview and corner the news agency into releasing their source at a later date. Payment for this interview could also be used to involve th3j35t3r in illegal acts. Their plan however, failed and they had to start from scratch.
According to logs, Nakomis reset Casey’s paypal password and sent payment to what he thought was a genuine AP reporter, who turned out to be th3j35t3r.
After the apparent failure, the group started what is now known as “LulzSec”. They wanted to disenfranchise themselves away from ‘Anonymous/AnonOps’ as much as possible so they could:
A) Claim credit for themselves
B) Higher Risk Targets
C) Not involve the group as a whole
D) Financial Gain
Nakomis is believed to have been around the Anon Community for quite some time, yet changing his name and releasing his true identity to only a select few.
What is known about Nakomis?
Coder – A few successful social engineering operations have shown him to be the main programming force behind some attacks. As a prior (lead?) developer for phpBB Online Message Boards, he might be the individual supplying LulzSec with SQL vulnerabilities for their attacks as well as coding software (possible malware).
Educated – Claims Berkeley as his location of studies. TinyChat video screen shots show him in what looks to be UC Berkeley sweats. Twitter page states Computer-Human Integration, which might be associated with the School of Information.
Immature – TinyChat video screen shots observe Nakomis exposing himself many times.
Location – Southern California (th3j35t3r #jester irc logs show him stating the town of Victorville as his residence, but not confirmed)
Connections – Seems to know everyone fairly well around the community. Many times gaining recognition from @Anon_Central and other twitter accounts confirmed as AnonOps “Staff”. Prior accomplices: Isis, Owen, Ryan, Corey, Wolfy, Heyguise, OpNoPro, Sabu, Topiary, Barrett Brown, and more.
Military Counter-Intelligence – Sources say Nakomis served quite recently in the United States marines doing government intelligence. Possible network security work or programming that supported their mission.
Age – Anywhere from 24-26 is what has been seen and reported.
Identification Marks – Beard(?), tattoos on both arms, brown hair, and blue eyes.
There’s no doubt that these members (Sabu, topiary, nakomis, and possibly others) are apart of LulzSec. Targeting th3j3t3r, his followers, ShadowDXS, and just the attitude in general resembles their prior operations.
Nakomis<ShadowDXS : I’m gonna make you famous. Because I love you.
Okay I know I said no vids this time… Supporting Information:
UPDATE AGAIN (this post is gonna run n run methinks)
So earlier today on twitter – @lulzsec went quiet, and I mean really quiet. They always say goodnight and they always say good morning, not last night or this morning, around the same time @anonakomis was also unusually quiet.
Then simultaneously after 13 hours – they both re-surfaced??? wtf – Do they go to the same kindergarten?
Not long after @anonakomis re-surfaced he used a very distinctive phrase as I outline below.
AND A SCREENSHOT (JUST IN CASE):
Not many days ago, when lulzsec ‘tango downed’ the CIA external facing site – they used the same phrase, as you can see from this article here by Steve Ragan at the Tech Herald, because they have deleted the original tweet as far as I can tell, but I didn’t look too hard.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE LINK
AND ANOTHER SCREENSHOT (JUST IN CASE):
Now I know many ‘young people’ from a certain demographic use the ‘jelly’ phrase, but……
PS for the ‘lulz’????
Tickety Tock Tock.
It’s finally a pleasure to introduce you to Casey ‘Nakomis’ Gardiner
(finally confirmed, anon player and now lulzsec player – see above).
This is a 2004 profile from:Â http://hardware.gotfrag.com/portal/user/114711/
(notice the register date and photo and name etc)
here’s a screenshot in case he remembers his own password and deletes the account:
UPDATE: The above link ‘got hacked’ within minutes of this release – well actually it didn’t Casey logged in and tried to make it seem that way.
Why? – For the LULZ x
Moving swiftly on – who’s next? BB? Tope? Sabu?
Why not call Lulzsec on UK +44 020 8133 9723 | USA (209) 690-7925 – tell them they suck at this shit.
(PROPS TO TEAM WEB NINJAS)
The only thing more dangerous than under-estimating your opponents, is under-estimating your victims. They are on to you.
Just to let you all know, the link to the gotfrag profile above was mysteriously ‘hacked’ within minutes of me posting the screenshot above. However it is confirmed bt Gotfrag.com that no hack occured, the account was simply logged into and details changed, to make it appear to have been ‘hacked’.
There’s a coincidence huh?
Anyway – let’s not dwell on that too much ehh?
Not too big of a deal, because the google cache still shows the old one: t.co/uH8J5Ew (sans photo)
and to back that up with a secondary source:
So ya’ll remember Lulzsec’s first hit a few weeks ago. The one where they tried to revive TUPAC by dropping in a fake story about him being alive and well in New Zealand with Biggie? If not here is a link to an article about that caper.
(this was before they started releasing innocent people’s login credentials and urging other like-minded dickwads to mess with peoples lives and steal their paypal accounts etc).
Well, guess who is a TUPAC fan?
Here is a video over 12 months old uploaded by, and featuring Casey ‘anonakomis’ Gardiner on the Qik site trying to rap.
Pause it at 00:27 seconds
I have no doubt that he will log in and delete the video – incriminating himself further like he did with the gotfrag thing above.
So here’s some grabs.
Above you will see TUPAC – paused at 00:27 seconds.
Now I am not saying that all TUPAC fans are Lulzsec – or indeed all lulzsec fans are TUPAC,
I am merely presenting relentless observations, having myself been hounded by these fuckwits for months.
As you will see if you read everything from the top.
Let’s not forget they went from lulz (mal-nourished basement dwellers)Â to terrorists around this time when they attacked CIA.gov
and tried to extort Karim – official statement below:
You draw your own conclusions.
@anonakomis – Protip: sticking feathers up your ass and quacking does not make you a duck. Denying mounting evidence does not negate it.
Our genius nakomis – captured on his own webcam not 3 days ago – I suppose the VendettaÂ mask is to throw me off the scent huh?
THE ORIGINAL VIDEO WAS DELETED BY YOUTUBE AT THE REQUEST OF NAKOMIS (hmmmm)
HOWEVER – YOU CAN STILL SEE IT HERE: http://www.twitvid.com/QINKD
