It's true, though naturally Guru doesn't know Caps0ff, and is just making random (unfounded) conjecture about the guy's skillset.
From the people I've talked to who know him, he can give Tarnovsky a run for his money in terms of what he can do. Though, in fairness, the i8751 dumping was in fact pretty easy, as there is indeed a quick and easy exploit for those chips. However, Caps0ff has also dumped the Taito M-Chip for Extermination, and at the very least I don't think the M-Chip has a UV window like the i8751s do, so the guy had to at least have gotten a little bit more down-and-dirty to dump it.

The chips have been recovered, and the guy has provided an inventory and an explanation to Vas Crabb, who has kindly posted the inventory and relevant information here: http://arcade.vastheman.com/decap/

They're definitely not the same person.
