Hacktivist Outfit LulzSec Says Bon Voyage
Posted on Jun 26, 2011
Lulz Security is no more. The humorous hackers who attacked targets including PBS and the CIA released a statement announcing that “Our planned 50 day cruise has expired, and we must now sail into the distance. ...”
It’s not entirely clear why they’re calling it quits, although they have come under attack from other hackers as well as the usual authorities. The BBC reports that a 19-year-old from Essex, England, was arrested in connection with a LulzSec hack.
However, as the Lulz point out in their statement, “we are not tied to this identity permanently. Behind this jolly visage of rainbows and top hats, we are people.” And then there’s that collaboration with Anonymous to consider.
The full LulzSec statement is embedded below for your perusal. —PZS
