Hacker Group LulzSec Disbanding

The hacker group that in the past two months has breached numerous corporation and government websites has announced that it’s finished.

LulzSec, short for Lulz Security, says it only wanted to operate for 50 days to try to revive the AntiSec movement, which is opposed to the computer security industry.

“For the past 50 days we’ve been disrupting and exposing corporations, governments, often the general population itself, and quite possibly everything in between, just because we could,” the group announced.

It says it succeeded in bringing back the AntiSec movement and also encourages others to carry on its work. “Together, united, we can stomp down our common oppressors and imbue ourselves with the power and freedom we deserve.”

The group then released one last data dump with information allegedly swiped from AT&T, AOL, Disney, Universal, EMI and the FBI.

Since its inception, LulzSec has crashed the CIA’s website, hacked Sony’s servers, attacked the US Senate’s website and released confidential information from Arizona police computers (in retaliation for the state’s strict immigration laws).

But with almost 300,000 fans and followers, LulzSec is likely to reinvent itself and return. We just hope its victims learned a valuable lesson the first time around.
