CIA FBI and Congress were not 'hacked' just DdoSed offline for awhile. Not hard to do at all and not as if anything was really ever compromised.
Even what they did to Sony was fairly easy to accomplish, which should give you some pause about entrusting that company with any personal information.

''The Sun is the s***test UK publication in existence: thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/n… How many times can you use "geek" and "nerd" in one article?''
It looks like The Sun touched a nerve there. Ouch !

You don't mess with hackers. Regardless of if they're egotistical or not. Every single piece of information about you, and your family and your dog. Is on the internet. And its easy to find with the tools and the know-how.

Well, could this be the profit that motivates the story, if there is one.
Perhaps this story was a hastily crafted 'eye catcher' for the readership, filler.
They don't even seem to be tremendously interested in reporting the fascinating subculture from which this 'movement' (if LulzSec can correctly be called that,) came.
It behooves the establishment to characterize this as a hacker gang. And I have wondered why they haven't progressed to calling them cyber-terrorists.

Nothing was harmed, nothing important was accessed... These US agencies and government networks have built in vulnerabilities... Intentionally in some cases.
What good is a trap, if no one bothers to step in it?
Hacker group LulzSec has begun publicly attacking hacker group Anonymous, an action that could lead to a civil war of sorts between the two hacker groups that have similar origins.
Over the weekend, LulzSec has seemingly finally moved away from being in it "for the lulz" and has acquired a cause: it has announced it has teamed up with Anonymous and other "affiliated battleships" and that it is launching "Operation Anti-Security".
Sony that Anonymous is the party responsible for the online assault last month over Sony’s precious customer data. After all, Sony Computer Entertainment Chief Kazuo Hirai did mention in a letter to Congress that his company discovered a file named “Anonymous” on a Sony Online Entertainment server, but he did not venture further by levelling an accusation at the hacker group.
"The case has been dropped. In the eyes of the law, the case is closed, for Anonymous it is just beginning," the collective said in a new video.
"The attacks on the websites of Sony have been ceased. Sony's poor attempts to explain the system outages through maintenance amuse us. Therefore we are finding other ways to get Sony's attention."
According to the statement, the group isn't pleased with Sony acquiring the IP addresses of people who have viewed videos of PlayStation hacking techniques on social network sites such as YouTube.

"Sega Corp joins the ranks of video game companies to be hacked in recent time with one small twist, it seems LulzSec was not behind this one. They reached to Sega's official twitter account and offered to destroy the hackers that attacked them. From the article: 'In its offer to assist Sega, the Tweet from Lulz hinted that its leaders might count themselves among a small but highly loyal group of gamers who still play on the aging Dreamcast console. "Sega - contact us," Lulz said in its Tweet to the video game developer. "We want to help you destroy the hackers that attacked you. We love the Dreamcast, these people are going down."'"
"Hacking group LulzSec has poured cloud water on claims that it had stolen UK Census data and was preparing to release the records. 'Just saw the pastebin of the UK census hack. That wasn't us — [y]don't believe fake LulzSec releases unless we put out a tweet first,' the group said from its official Twitter account."
LulzSec The Lulz Boat
Ryan Cleary charged with botnet-related crimes unrelated to LulzSec: t.co... "November 2010", etc.

The hacker group LulzSec posted the identities of two people it claimed had snitched on it and provided information that may have led to the arrest of a teen hacker in England.
"These goons begged us for mercy after they apologized to us all night for leaking some of our affiliates' logs. There is no mercy on The Lulz Boat," the group said on PasteBin Tuesday.
The arrests come amid a seeming increasing of hacking activity among groups such as LulzSec, also known as LulzSecurity, and Anonymous, as well as others -- such as the unidentified groups that have hacked the IMF and Sega.
