C'mon, this is just plain amusing.

As we all know, hacker group Lizard Squad was supposedly the culprit for the PSN/Xbox Live DDoS attacks over the holidays.

Since then, they've been the target of an FBI investigation, which has already yielded several arrests. And now, it seems the hackers just got hacked. After promoting its "boot-for-hire" service, which lets customers submit a nominal fee for a website they'd like the Squad to take down, the attackers suddenly find themselves on the defensive…and very much exposed.

That Lizard Squad Stresser tool was itself hacked, and an unsolicited user snagged details of the entire roster of 14,241 people who signed up for the service. Investigative journalist Brian Krebs got a copy of the data dump and realized that very few precautions were taken to protect the identity of those customers:

"All registered usernames and passwords were stored in plain text."

Is anyone really surprised? Those who run something like Lizard Squad don't care about anybody and that includes their customers (regardless of what those customers might think). They're also not omnipotent, which they typically believe they are right from the get-go. Let's see, what have they said about these FBI investigations? "Yawn" and "They'll never arrest the King Lizard."

Doesn't look that way. And now you got hacked. And it's funny .

@Rachet_JC_FTW – But if you had a PS4, you would only need to remember trying to get online with the system between the 24th and 26th of December 2014, to suddenly stop feeling bad about them.
