Introduction

No introduction has been specified for this group.

History

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 more than 30 in-depth tutorials. In February, their official "HelpDesk" was established in the Beginner Hacking section, which garnered several hundred replies. Due to the success of this HelpDesk, 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.

Current Status

Legion was deleted by Omniscient as a result of a large scam report on its owner, Anonymous.
