The purported hacker who infiltrated the BART’s Police Officers Association website todayclaims to be a French girl (“Humiliating, huh?”) who executed her first hack, SF Weekly has learned. SF Weekly chatted online with someone who claimed to be the mind behind today’s attack. She provided us with the security hole she used, saying the whole thing was incredibly simple.

Lamaline_5mg — her online handle — doesn’t claim to be part of Anonymous, the Internet-based movement that masterminded Monday’s BART protest. She even took issue with referring to the attack as a hack: “They had zero security,” she wrote. “Listen, don’t ask questions. I’ll tell you what’s important to know first.”
