A group of hackers calling themselves, DerpTrolling, are claiming responsibility for leaking a number of customer logins across Sony/Playstation Network (PSN), Microsoft Windows Live, and 2K games.
DerpTrolling posted their latest leak on a Pastebin document, “Dear Internet,” the document reads, “The following is a very small portion of Lord Gaben and the rest of his crew’s glorious raids across the high seas of the Internet.”
Their leaked document holds usernames and passwords of 2,131 PSN users; 1,473 Windows Live users; and 2,000 2K Games users.
The leak comes shortly after the groups previous statements, claiming they did not wish to leak customer data, but the group has changed fate after many presumably did not take them serious.
“We were advised by one of our friends over at RedHack to make adjustments in our operations,” the DerpTrolling member said. “A show of force from us, would be an attack on 2K that would be very similar to our attacks on Blizzard. Like I said, DerpTrolling in no way wants to harm our children by leaking such damaging data. It’s only a warning to the companies.”
Through the groups message, they hope the leaking of customer credentials will force the companies to upgrade their security to prevent common attacks, which will result in better services. Though the leak is quite small, compared to past data breaches, a DerpTrolling member said the group has a swath of data they chose not to leak.
“We have 800,000 from 2K and 500,000 credit card data. In all of our raids we have a total of around 7 million usernames and passwords,” a DerpTolling member told CNet. “We have around 2 million Comcast accounts, 620,000 Twitter accounts, 1.2 million credentials belonging to the CIA domain, 200,000 Windows Live accounts, 3 million Facebook, 1.7 million EA origins accounts, etc.”
The member stressed to CNet that DerpTrolling need to be taken serious.
“There are a lot of people and fellow hackers who believe that DerpTrolling is just a bunch of kids. But the truth is we have been associated with and assisted every well known hacking group aside from The Syrian Electronic Army and LizardSquad (although we were invited to join LizardSquad),” DerpTolling continued.
“You heard about Anonymous knocking the entire .Mil domain offline? Well that was us! You hear of RedHack launching DDoS attacks against Turkey’s government? That was us as well! You heard about LulzSec knocking gaming servers and websites offline? Well that was us too! And that was us who knocked Syria’s internet offline earlier this year. DerpTrolling really has many forms, most people only see the Gaming side of us! We can be very serious hackers.”
DerpTrolling is commonly known for sending large DDoS attacks taking large company gaming servers offline, including World of Warcraft and League of Legends. Another set of hackers posted DerpTrolling’s information online last year due to the attacks.
Sony, Microsoft, and 2K have not released an official statement regarding the hack, meaning the leak cannot be confirmed.
