Here’s what we learned:
- They think the release of Gawker’s source code is more serious than the release of the user IDs and underreported. We agree and said so in our coverage.
- They repeat that they have no relationship with the online messageboard 4chan, which Gawker had taunted, or Operation Payback, the guys behind the pro-Wikileaks attacks.
- The group includes 13 members (and “three others”), and has no leader.
- A bit of fun at Gawker’s expense: most of the Gawker admins’ passwords were weed-related, and their framework was called “GANJA.”
- Gawker acted nearly instantly (“within 5 mins”) to regain control of their hacked Twitter account.
- WARNING: they will “re-visit Gawker some time in the future to see if they have improved their security” and “have other targets in [their] sights.”
