Approximately 50 days after notorious hacker group Lulz Sec started its foray against the internet world, the group’s announced that it’ll cease ‘operations’ immediately.
Lulz Sec has had enough, it seems, releasing a farewell statement on its website, saying it’ll continue to support the movement of others, and encouraged the Antisec wave to do the same.
“Again, behind the mask, behind the insanity and mayhem, we truly believe in the AntiSec movement,”” said the group.
“We believe in it so strongly that we brought it back, much to the dismay of those looking for more anarchic lulz. We hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us.
“So with those last thoughts, it’s time to say bon voyage. Our planned 50 day cruise has expired, and we must now sail into the distance, leaving behind – we hope – inspiration, fear, denial, happiness, approval, disapproval, mockery, embarrassment, thoughtfulness, jealousy, hate, even love. If anything, we hope we had a microscopic impact on someone, somewhere. Anywhere.”
Lulz Sec didn’t go down with shame, though, as the group claim that it’s released a plethora of personal information including, 50,000 passwords from members on gaming forums, 550,000 Battlefield Heroes Beta users’ data, AT&T internal data, 200,000 hackforums member data, AOL internet data and lots more.
Lulz Sec got the attention of gaming’s web when it hacked numerous MMOs, Brink, Bethesda, The Escapist, Eve Online, And League of Legends amongst others.
