    Steps A-E, but it might as well be A-F, as in fuck it.

    Chat logs between hacktivist Jeremy Hammond and Sabu show that the FBI mole supplied Hammond with addresses of foreign websites to target, it's alleged. A flaw in web-hosting software Plesk was one of the main routes used to obtain unauthorized access to vulnerable systems, the newspaper claimed.

    Hammond, together with a Brazilian hacker using the nickname Havittaja, broke into the insecure sites, although Sabu merely encouraged them rather than participating in the hacks, it's reported. Once the sites were hacked, sensitive information was extracted and uploaded to servers designated by Monsegur that had been tapped by the Feds, we're told.

    "Exploiting a vulnerability in a popular web hosting software, the informant directed at least one hacker to extract vast amounts of data - from bank records to login information - from the government servers of a number of countries and upload it to a server monitored by the FBI," the NYT reports.

    What are the odds on it becoming a circus down there, come the 8th of May? What are the odds on the witness protection program not coming even close to being on the table? What are the odds on him not being thrown into the prison gen pop ? What are the odds on, that he is a too good of an asset to lose, regardless of the circumstances?

    Everyone is expendable.

    Sabu was stupid and ended up being used by the Feds. Its why you do not break the law, in any way, unless you are sure you will not get caught, or that you will get away with it.

    Hopefully the feds incompetence will get found out, and this whole thing will explode in everyone's faces.

    I considered Liking the post above this, but I was tormented by the fear of getting caught.

    I mean, I'm already having nightmares about being stalked by OSA (and not the OG OSA, but the damn newfag OSA), not to mention also having occasional flashes of the decaying food that must be hiding in Mark Bunker's beard.

    Actually, there's a common leaderfag theme. Sabu was a leaderfag. I think "leaderfag" needs a thread.

    I will only like this post if it in no way promotes anything illegal in action or thought, is not tied to terrorist activity or journalists such as Glenn Greenwald or Barrett Brown, and does not threaten corporate security or public or private utilities or security firms.

    Only a retard would try to lead anonymous. Seriously, claiming to be a leader is a quick way to not only go to jail, but get sued.

    Sentencing guidelines. So he already plead guilty?
    Page 8 cooperation on arrest (like everything they asked him he started that day)
    Page 12-20 What he did as a double agent
    Working around the clock he engaged his coconspirators in online chats to prove their identities.
    He committed credit card fraud before he started with hackivism

    Reading that NYTimes article and how the feds are sucking him off, it seems Sabu's social engineering skilz are pretty fucking good.

  34. LulzSec hacker-informant 'Sabu' set free

    By Kevin Collier (Google+) on May 27, 2014 Email

    Anonymous hacker Hector Monsegur, best known as Sabu, was released Tuesday on time served for his role in a slew of high-profile cyberattacks on corporate and civilian targets. He also received one year probation.
    Monsegur's received a significantly lighter sentence thanks to the government's request for leniency for his cooperation with law enforcement.
    The FBI called Monsegur "extremely helpful," and claims that he helped thwart more than 300 separate cyberattacks in the three years he served as an informant.
    Presiding U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska repeatedly referred to Monsegur's help with law enforcement as "extraordinary," adding, "you don't often hear of this," in reference to the extent of his informant duties.

    Can envision arrested hackers in the future immediately saying to their lawyers "get me a deal like Sabu", and the FBI knows that.
