Lulz Sec Hacked Into Bethesda “Weeks Ago”, Promises To “Embarrass” Firm, Demands Skyrim Details

by Ernice Gilbert on June 13th, 2011, under industry news, News

Bethesda recently announced that its websites, including the Brink stats website suffered an illegal intrusion over the weekend, with personal information being stolen. Since then hacker group Lulz Sec has claimed responsibility and are now planning to go even further, promising to “embarrass” the company soon.

The group even joked around about Bethesda upcoming game, Skyrim, demanding that the firm “add an official LulzSec top hat to Skyrim and we’ll remove your admin configurations from our incoming leak”.

Lulz Sec also plan on “embarrassing” the company very soon.

“Bethesda, give everyone more info on Skyrim and we’ll keep the user database to ourselves. However we are going to embarrass you anyway.”

The group also said it’d broke into Bethesda sites a while ago:

“Bethesda, we broke into your site over two months ago. We’ve had all of your Brink users for weeks. Please fix your junk, thanks!”

What Bethesda’s done is yet unknown, but we’re almost sure this group is doing what it does, like it name states, for the “lulz” of it all. Shame.

    @afrotravis–hell with that, i hope they DO find a way to keep the ps3′s hacked, sony’s taken away piece by piece the things that make the ps3 better. that being said, i hope they find all the members of these hacking groups and line their @$$es up against the wall and take ‘em out; until then, this is how it’ll go:

    sony gets hacked,
    sony fixes problem
    sony gets hacked -AGAIN-
    sony fixes problem -again-
    in the meantime, all of us regular players get screwed over because some jack@$$ kids decide they want to screw things up for sony.
