The CIA takedown is only the latest fed-baiting from the group, whose targets have also included the Senate–LulzSec stole a tranche of internal files from a Senate server earlier this week “just for kicks“–and an FBI affiliate known as Infragard.
Lulzsec has balls of steel. You gotta give them a A+ for their lack of concern of drawing attention from the big dogs like the CIA.
I don't know what they gain with these hacks.
they gain lulz
They don't gain anything from the hacks. They gain notoriety from publicizing them.
they'll soon be gaining some orange jumpsuits and a view of the bay.
not if they continue the way they have will they be in jail. they hacked Sony, Bethesda, CIA, FBI, and countless other places and nobody even knows who they are.
That's a pretty big lulz! This may not have been the best idea from them. The CIA is no joke.
I wonder if they can or will they hack the new york stock exchange with this bad economy?
lol I agree! With the results we are getting from the NYSE I would have figured it had already been hacked.
And by 'hack' they mean. They flooded a website designed to handle moderate amounts of traffic and took it offline for a few minutes. That takes talent.
Seems as if all the Anonymous attention caused them to step their game up.
A young British man has been arrested for a connection of some sort with a well-known hacker group by English authorities working in partnership with international police agencies. The 19-year-old with connections to “hacktivist” group LulzSec was put into custody at his home in Wickford, outside of London. He was detained on suspicion of computer infractions to Scotland Yard. The hacker group LulzSec seems determined to make as many powerful enemies as possible. Its latest target: the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA takedown is only the latest fed-baiting from the group, whose targets have also included the Senate–LulzSec stole a tranche of internal files from a Senate server earlier this week “just for kicks“–and an FBI affiliate known as Infragard. This group must be responsible enough to face all the charges that will be filed against them. <a title="With An Installment loan Payback Is Easy" href=" http://personalmoneystore.c... loans</a> might help if you had your data taken in the Sony Playstation hack.
