ITpro’s story on the alleged Reckz0r hack

ITpro has a short story on an alleged hack by Reckz0r:

“VISA & MasterCard HACKED – I just leaked a half data of VISA & MasterCard, the full one is about 50GB or bigger,” said Reckz0r.

Let’s be very clear: ITpro is being absolutely correct here. It clearly has some doubts, using the word ‘claims’ twice and ‘alleged’ once. It finishes by saying, “IT Pro was awaiting a response from MasterCard and Visa to confirm the authenticity of the data as this article went to press.”

I didn’t want to wait. I asked Anonymous if Reckz0r’s claims were true.

“Dude,” I was told, “never trust that guy. Reckz0r is a 14 year-old liar.”

OK, we should take the age with a pinch of salt (Reckz0r has been doxed elsewhere as a 24 year-old Saudi Arabian); but the metaphor is clear – Reckz0r is a kid in the playground.

In fact that image is re-inforced by a subsequent tweet from Jester:

Jester commenting on Reckz0r

One of the accusations against Reckz0r was that he ‘fake doxed Jester’, which might explain Jester’s arrival on the scene. But back to Anonymous. “He [Reckz0r] is considered the village idiot in Anonymous circles. He pretended he hacked Sony for LulzSec; he pretended he hacked sites that UGNAZI hacked. He has just faked another hack like he always does. Pure Bieber Hacker.”

OK, if this is just another faking story, why should I bother with it? “I would never open a file from an idiot like Reckz0r,” said Anonymous. “He is probably trying to spread a botnet.”

So there you have it: security advice from Anonymous. Do you really want to download an unknown file from a Bieber Hacker?
