In a strange twist of fate, the hackers have become the hacked. The notorious Lizard Squad group that claimed responsibility for downing the PlayStation and Xbox networks over Christmas recently fell victim to an attack that exposed its entire customer list on the Internet.
Lizard Squad is known for its own hacks but also created a tool that any paying customer could use to torment others online.
The Stresser let those who paid use it to overwhelm websites or kick people offline by bombarding the sites they were using with data.
Now, the entire 14,241 name list of Lizard Squad customers has been exposed. Security researcher Brian Krebs obtained a copy of the list and was the first to break the news about the hack. The list was available for a little while on file-sharing site Mega.
