|“||We are Legion, a group of dedicated members whom are interested in looking for dedicated members who seek to learn and produce good quality tutorials, give out support in the specified sub sections and help bring hacking back to Hackforums. We are very picky with our choices for whom we pick to be invited into our group so we want only the best of the best. Finally we expect all members to fully know the rules of this forum and to abide by them, though we may be a hacking group we only practice the things that Hackforums allows.||”|
In January 2013, Anonymous and Vinnie decided to partner up and purchase a group together. They purchased 'The Corporation' and renamed it to Legion.
Within the first month of the group's creation, its members had already contributed greatly to the Hacking Tutorial section with a bevy of in-depth tutorials. In February, their official "Help Desk" was established in the Beginner Hacking section, which garnered several hundred replies. Due to the success of this Help Desk, more were created, dedicated to specific topics such as hash decryption and RATs.
On February 5th, 2013, Omniscient announced that the Hack Forums upgrades database had been compromised. It was later learned that this was due to the acts of a member from Root. There was hostility between Root and Legion as they were both hacking-oriented groups, and subsequently, the personal information of each member of Legion was released. The accounts of the Root leaders were later closed, along with the Root usergroup.
Legion, alongside Illuminati, was deleted by Omniscient as a result of a large scam report on its owner, Anonymous.
