Well this is simply too good to be true. The hacker claiming to responsibility for all Dana's ills appears to be a 13 year old Australian who considers himself a "Grey hat" hacker which is a hacker who "acts illegally, though in good will."
In a recent interview with softpedia.com the hacker in question said:
I have hacked about 150 websites. 81 of the hacked websites belong to the Brazilian and the US government.
I am part of Anonymous. I have taken part in a lot of operations with Anonymous.
I first heard about Anonymous when the PSN was hacked and my friend told me that there is a video on YouTube on how to join them. Then I saw their IRC and there was a channel where I asked people if they can tell me how I can help.
After I learned how, I helped DDOS websites, and then I learned SQL injection and defacing.
I have breached the Administrator of usa.gov yesterday. That was fun. I went through the directories and stuff. Me and my friend Sterlok breached the security.
Then I did a live deface on UFC.com and UFC.tv. The live deface was on Tinychat. I was sharing my screen and people were watching me deface.
Now I have XSS'ed OPOA, which is the Oakland Police website. I am going to release their stuff soon.
So those were really important to me.
In the interview the 13 year old discusses his screen name,
I choose this name, s3rver.exe, because I really like Botnets and Rats and when you create a RAT Server it comes out as server.exe. That’s how I choose that name.
Which can be also seen at the end of this anonymous video on youtube.
Roll call, whose down with this kid?
