LulzSec returns with an alleged 3 terabytes of data
Just when you thought the rebellion was crushed for good, LulzSec returned in grand, Star Wars style. Again
They’re back and brassier than ever!
LulzSec, anti-security hackers who branched off from Anonymous, announced its resurrection in a new YouTube video.
Originally a time-limited project, the collective nonetheless carried on past the deadline, focusing on attacks against private security forces, the FBI, and the CIA. They recently suffered severe setbacks with the revelation that Sabu, their nominal leader, was an FBI undercover operative, and the arrests of several prominent members, some of whom are suspected of having passed the Stratfor files to WikiLeaks, who then released them to the public.
The new video is brash, in typical LulzSec style, using Star Wars imagery, typography, and metaphor to identify themselves as an uncrushable rebellion. It currently boasts more than 18,000 views.
With a claimed three terabytes of data, including files from the FBI, Syrian government emails, the Department of Defence, and the Colombian prison system, LulzSec declares vengeance and may indeed have the tools to get the job done.
