When hacker group, LulzSec docked their ship, few of us actually expected them to stay there. But they are now back and under the AntiSec flag have claimed a string of high profile targets. AntiSec claims that this is their first official release from the Anonymous – LulzSec alliance formed last week in a data dump of information posted on file sharing website The Pirate Bay. According to a report, the file contains information regarding the Brazilian government’s passwords and data, user passwords from Universal Music Group Partners along with other sensitive information from various other heists.
LulzSec is back!
The statement that accompanied the file contains a document that reads, “It has been a week since the LulzBoat reeled the LulzSec flag in and now proudly flies with the AntiSec flag. Since this day, the movement is organized by a fleet of independent, but allied vessels.” The document goes on to say, “The introductory AntiSec release (dubbed AntiSec-001) does not contain the type of loot that any Lulz Lizard can just abuse mindlessly. Instead, we provide material that is primarily against corrupt Governments (in our world this is all Governments) and corrupt companies. In this release you will find network data for the Governments of Zimbabwe, Australia, Anguilla (a British overseas territory in the Caribbean), as well as internal information about companies like Universal and Viacom.”
So it looks like LulzSec and Anonymous are back with a vengeance. What does this spell for governments across the globe? Who will be their next target? Your guess is as good as ours.
