Hacker Group LulzSec Says It's Done


www.msnbc.msn.com

After 50 days of wreaking cyber-caper havoc, Lulz Security says it's done and will sail into the horizon.

The group has stolen mountains of personal data in a dozen different hacks, embarrassing law enforcement on both sides of the Atlantic while boasting about the stunts online.

The group's disbandment comes unexpectedly, and could be a sign of nerves in the face of law enforcement investigations.

While this is a twist, its not too supirsing.

Its kind of an anti climax ending, or should we say a nice duck and cover?

However, it really does make a lot of sense, considering everything thats gone down
with this "group", and its "counnterpart" Anonymous.

I am curious to hear what others think about this recent development

What is going to happen to the rest of the Arazona Police information?

Will it be released? Or are deals being cut?

In all truth, whats in a name?

This reminds me of the movie TRON which i just watched today when sam meet castor (zeus)

and explains how he changed his name for self preservation. We are probably seeing a change in tactics as they've realized they cant keep bringing the heat on themselves forever.

I have not kept too close of an eye on all the hacking Lulz has done...
I must have missed out on the Arizona hacks?

Lame. Just when I was starting to think those guys were going to do something really awesome, they sail off into the sunset. Oh well, hopefully the individuals in the group will continue on with the more serious goals of anonymous. It's guys like that that make me wish I had kept up with my counter-security practices over the last decade.

It actually seems a logical conclusion to me.

You come in, do the deed, and you disappear. Noone left, no names, no stories, and no build up left. The holes were pointed out, the deed was done and now the curtain has closed.

I expect of course for some idiots to try to continue the lulzsec name, and then get busted. They will take the fall and the original perpetrators will be long gone.

Gone or not I really feel they spearheaded an interesting internet movement. I wonder if that movement is now out of steam or will be able to continue chugging along without the gentle prodding of LulzSec.

I wonder if some deals had to be cut along with the previous poster.

It does not supprise me one bit, the induvidual members will most certainly carry on with what they have been doing, just not under the name of LulzSec, I can imagine the heat has gotten a bit too much.

I'm sure another hacking group will come and take it's place in no time.

True that, yet I thought that Lulz had recently joined forces with Anyonymous?
And was it not Anonymous that was taking out revenge lessons over Wikileaks?

I think I am seeing this as a move to influence public opinion more than anything else.
Its strange this is breaking news on MSNBC as well.

Well obviously they were threatened --probably within an inch of their lives. And now they stop. No surprise.

so basically 'lulzsec' sh@t their pants and ran away.

it was fun to se their expolits over the last few weeks, but they didnt really do anything.
they realized they'd bitten off more than they could chew and scurry'd back into the corners of the web.

I believe the real reason their ending is because 4chan has waged war on them.

I don't know if I would say they didn't do anything. Just made a thread about one 'accomplishment'.

They certainly were not all that advanced but they did really get a lot of people riled up. That seems like something to me at least.

This may have been a poly to sway public opinion. Allot of hackers are all grown up now and own security companies of their own. Who's to say this wasn't one or more of them insuring chicken little buys his security package. There is also the whole net neutrality business they are trying to sell everyone on. Scared people do dumb things like the Patriot Act. I fear that if things continued the way they were we would have seen a clamp down on the internet. I am sure this whole Arab Spring business has got those in power scared that the sheeple might start talking revolution here in the states. Best to insure they can't organize or share information. I don't buy it. The whole thing stinks. I may not know for sure who is pulling the strings or why but I am sure that I am getting yanked around.

"The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn't exist" If you are tricked into thinking you have defeated your enemy and won, it gives your enemy some breathing room to collect their thoughts and resources before they launch their next attack. I highly doubt this is the last we will see or hear of LulzSec.

I would agree the Lulz seemed affected by Ryans arrest. I have read numerous reports that
the Lulz changed tweet patterns afterwards.

The think I am really curious about is just recently Anymous and Lulz teamed up...

technolog.msnbc.msn.com

Hacking group LulzSec says it's now working with Anonymous, best-known for its denial-of-service attacks on Visa and MasterCard, which halted online donations during the WikiLeaks controversy.
LulzSec, also known as LulzBoat, announced its "Operation Anti-Security," said on PasteBin:
We encourage any vessel, large or small, to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path. We fully endorse the flaunting of the word "AntiSec" on any government website defacement or physical graffiti art. ... To increase efforts, we are now teaming up with the Anonymous collective and all


Questions I have...where is Anonymous, and where is the FBI?

I think there release "CHINGA LA MIGRA" crossed a line to terrorism. I can't say it was there intent but this post.lulzsecurity.com... Crosses the line because of the picture of the gun saying "off the pigs" then listing the names of cops and judges names , addresses and telephone numbers. There were jihadist websites where the owners ended up being charged for such things. And you can go to borderlandbeat and see how many cops and judges are killed south of the border daily to see why it could be called terrorist act. www.borderlandbeat.com...




Here a example jihad jane. She used her website to promote jihad but never did anything but post stuff on a website. Shes locked up for terrorism.
en.wikipedia.org...



Update: On February 1, 2011, Colleen LaRose pleaded guilty to conspiracy to support terrorists, conspiracy to kill in a foreign country, lying to investigators and attempted identity theft. On March 9, 2011, Jamie Paulin-Ramirez pleaded to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.
