According to information posted earlier (including detailed chatlogs) lulzSec are cornered and imploding, this recent bit is a ploy to muddy the evidence pool before the feds kick in their doors.
If this is as authentic as it looks they deserve a reality check.
Anyone still on the fence or supporting them, have a look for yourself....

Use your Dreamcast to relive your childhood or play homebrewed games.
Can it be a coincidence that the current explosion of emulator popularity didn't take off until a few years after the Sega Dreamcast hit the market? Sure, you could run Nintendo games on your PC for a long time, but there was something even more appealing about playing old-school console games on an actual gaming console. Though the Xbox is the modern console gamer's choice for emulation [Hack #23], the first console to be blown open by hackers was the venerable (though not especially impregnable) Sega Dreamcast.

As far as Lulz..
Enter at your own risk.
I've read plenty of ED pages. The problem I have with it being for the "lulz" is that it won't be so lulzy when cybersecurity is beefed up.
Last month the Obama administration pressed Congress to pass stronger cybersecurity measures, including a doubling of the maximum sentence for potentially endangering national security to 20 years in prison.

A flurry of cybersecurity
For the independents that are hacking for the lulz, they should remember that most computer criminals are not the most loyal bunch. Far from the hardened mafioso who will take some jail time to help out, or cover their cohorts.
I think you can find a statistic around about them turning coat once caught. So the real question is, if it's all for the lulz, how many lulz are gonna be there if the hammer comes down?
For the lulz means it's people with really poor foresight, if not, there's an agenda...
