Anonymous: LulzSec returns on April Fools' Day?
It really doesn’t matter whether it’s Anonymous doing the hacking or if it’s LulzSec doing the hacking. The same day LulzSec members were arrested, Anonymous showed it is quite capable of orchestrating an attack in the name of LulzSec. In fact, that attack was done under the banner of AntiSec, which refers to Anonymous and LulzSec working together.
The LulzBoat will be making another landing very soon, Target number 2... ?

LulzSec hacktivists use YouTube video to announce they'll reboot on April 1, despite arrest of six alleged core members.
A YouTube video uploaded Saturday called “LulzSec Returns” points to the group getting back together. The video was uploaded by FawkesSecurity, a user who uploaded various other videos on Saturday. They all point to a single movement called Project Mayhem 2012.
A pastebin entry on the subject defines Project Mayhem as a movement to destabilize the status quo. It will be used to collect and distribute leaks on major governments and corporations. They want to make it an artistic-based, non-violent movement that works around the law to bring about social change.
Whoever's behind the new campaign should be careful. Notably, law enforcement agencies, especially the FBI and Britain's Serious Organized Crime Agency, began locking up alleged participants in LulzSec-led attacks not long after the group called it quits, and they’ve been making multiple waves of Anonymous-related arrests ever since the group first began targeting MasterCard and Paypal in late 2010.
Since last 30 days we have seen many key members of Lulz & Anonymous are randomly getting busted by Federal authorities, so it can be suspected that coming April attack will be a tit for tat. The announcement was previewed one day prior via the FawkesSecurity Twitter channel in a tweet that read, "Expect something BIG and rather Lulzworthy very soon. CIA, FBI, Interpol, you're all on teh (sic) list." Wednesday, meanwhile, tweets from the same Twitter channel promised that "Anonymous will target national infrastructure" and create a "global financial meltdown" as part of what's been dubbed "Project Mayhem."
One thing is very unclear and that is the Twitter account AnonOps, which has 302,000 followers, has not mentioned Project Mayhem, Project Facebook, Operation Imperva, Operation Restore, or anything else on FawkesSecurity’s YouTube account. Furthermore, the Twitter account LulzSec is still silent and lulzsecurity.com is still down. So now it depends on you that how you will react this one, may be April Fool joke or may be some thing else.
