Anonymous picking up where Lulzsec left off

Monday, 27th June 2011 22:22 GMT By Andrew Groen

Hacker group Anonymous has issued a statement today vowing to pick up where fellow hackers LulzSec left off, after its 50 day internet security rampage targeted several video game companies.

The LulzSec group was a standard-bearer for the “anti-sec” movement, and Anonymous has signaled it will pursue the same goals.

“We like to clarify again: All LulzSec members are accounted for, nobody is hiding. Only a name was abandoned for the greater glory #AntiSec,” Anonymous said on Twitter.

Lulzsec’s hacks consistently targeted gaming companies and services like Bethesda, Nintendo, Codemasters, Epic, Square Enix, Eve Online, Minecraft, League of Legends and The Escapist.

Governmental organizations and documents were also a favorite target of the group.

LulzSec announced it was disbanding over the weekend.

    OK, now, you know how I was saying this and that. I’m hopping over to the just fuck off side of the fence now.

    Knowing Anon they’ll DDoS like two sites then get bored and make yet another #Op[Insert random shit here] IRC channel for their next “protest” du jour.

    I say Anon totally SHOULD “pick up where Lulzsec left off”. They’ll run it straight to the ground and forget about it in a week, leaving the whole “script kiddies who think they’re revolutionizing internet security” fad to rot like it’s supposed to.

    Christ, we had an ant problem just like this in our old house. Couldn’t get rid of the fuckers. Amazing how multiplying one tiny little shit a few times can magnify the problem immeasurably.

    Predictable, as long as there’s mountains, hackers shall climb.
    These little wankers have ruined the little credit Anonymous once had.
