    They tweeted that they liked Nintendo so they didn't want to fuck with them.

    I thought lulzsec said they were not planning to take any information.
    But I guess Nintendo didn't believe that. [​IMG]

    II remember a few people were complaining that credit card info won't be saved on the 3DS, and that you gotta enter them every single time you buy cash (Nintendo money or whatever they call it).
    I BET YOU'RE HAPPY NOW!!

    A couple years back a forum member had got access to one of Intelligent System's something-or-other, and found some in-progress builds of Fire Emblem 7 and 8. The prototype dumps floating around on the internet are from that leak. There was also some other information, some sound engine build files and stuffs, but I don't recall.

    I find this a lot more interesting than whatever the group that attacked Nintendo would try to do [​IMG] Fire Emblem fans made off with Fire Emblem booty in our case [​IMG]

    Hmmm....This seems kind of odd, in some perpectives. A hacker never leaves his accomplishments when hacking. If the guy hacked the servers and took nothing, he probably didn't find what he wanted.

    Seems to me this guy is looking for something specific to get at.

    It was lulzsec dude. Lulzsec said they like Nintendo too much to do them any damage. Check their website and their twitter account :/

    So did lulzsec perform the breach to demonstrate a lack of security, and not cause damage intentionally?

    I guess that makes them greyhat hackers? Not exactly white or black.

    If they didn't want to attack them, though, then why did they hack them?

    Yup, you hit the nail on the head.

    They like certain companies, but they'll still expose them no matter what. I think Nintendo is reacting to the fact that lulz actually got in, not the fact that they did anything.

    Many hackers enjoy looking for exploits, and performing said exploits without doing damage is one of the best ways to beef up security.
    It highlights potential flaws, and it's a great way to deliver a message without informing the public of how the flaw is exploited.
    Only the 'attacking' party and the 'victim' are privy to that knowledge.

    That said, in this scenario there was no 'attack' and 'victim' because lulzsec didn't want to harm Nintendo.
    This really goes to show that public image in this industry is shaping up to be more important, you don't want to be on the public's bad side.

    I think that's what the server configuration on the lulzsec site is, harmless proof that they got into Nintendo's servers.
    It's not like the configuration files can really be used for anything unless you actually got into their servers, there's nothing sensitive about it.

    Well, would a hacker expose the reason why he did something and would he expose himself to be the hacker that fast?


    Seriously, I think this guy is faking.

    They're not faking. Lulzsec posted the server configuration file online.

    In the file they posted, they noted the problems and how to fix it rather than exploiting the vulnerabilities.

    So I'm not going to lie, is Lulzsec good or bad? lol

    It seems like they're showing who's corrupt, yet helping companies by showing them exploits to help the security. I'm so confused by this group lol.
