Web Vandal Captured After Using Allegedly Anonymous Proxy
« on: September 24, 2011, 06:33:10 am »
It seems that the realities of using an online proxy/anonymising  service have hit home to some so called "hackers"

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/technology/2011/09/lulzsec-hacker-exposed-service-he-thought-would-hide-him/42895/

On Thursday, the FBI arrested two suspected hackers who allegedly participated in Anonymous and LulzSec attacks. One of them, Cody Kretsinger, faces 15 years in prison for allegedly helping break into the Sony Pictures website with an SQL injection and publishing user data. As we described on Thursday, the indictment against Kretsinger says he used what's called a proxy server to hide his identity while carrying out the attack. But on Friday it emerged that the site he allegedly used to disguise his identity cooperated with police working to track him down. That's got some in the online privacy community very nervous.

The federal indictment against Kretsinger charges that he used a proxy server site called Hidemyass.com to disguise his Internet protocol address. By transmitting data through the proxy, a hacker can hide his or her ISP from the target. But since the proxy server gets between the machines on either end of that exchange, it is in a position to know details about the hacker.


This is pretty much commonly known to most folks but obviously not this young man, lets hope the message gets about now that in these days of digital surveillance little of what we do is actually secret or private,  we just like to think it is.

One trivial thing I wonder about is whether the lawyers and judge spell website names or say them. Would they keep referring to "hide my ass dot com", to the entertainment and merriment of many?
