Default LulzSec member denies hacking Stratfor

A former LulzSec member has denied that he hacked into the servers of global intelligence company Stratfor and stole credit card data and personal details of 860,000 of its clients.

Unlike many of the LulzSec cases, Jeremy Hammond does not appear to have tried to do a deal with the Feds in return for a lower sentence.

Instead Hammond is actually pleading not guilty, which in the US is a bit like using the do or die card in the board game Escape from Colditz.

According to Associated Press, Hammond has been locked up since March after the FBI named him as a lieutenant of LulzSec ringleader Hector Xavier "Sabu" Monsegur. Hammond did not ask for bail this time either.

The Untouchables claim that Hammond stole data for about 60,000 credit cards from Stratfor servers, as well as e-mail and other information for about 860,000 of the service's clients. He was also charged with hacking servers belonging to the Arizona Department of Public Safety and stealing police details.

There are also charges of conspiracy to commit computer hacking and related offences associated with the attacks.

Hammond was identified by statements he made in online chats. In one, he allegedly revealed that a friend had been arrested during protests last August in St. Louis. In another, he said he had been arrested in New York City during the Republican National Convention in 2004. At one time he mentioned doing porridge in federal prison. FBI investigators used the details to narrow this list of suspects.

It is not clear what Hammond's defence will be at the moment but given that the police and the fairly powerful defence contractors at Statfor are miffed over the hack, he probably didn't get much clemency.
