In what has been a year of frequent cyber-attacks, AntiSec, the group resulting from the combination of Anonymous and LulzSec, has released 10 GB worth of data belonging to law enforcement agencies across the United States.
After barely seeing the light of day on Google+ a couple of weeks ago before being hauled off, the hacktivist group who go by the name Anonymous stated its intention to come up with it's own social networking site with a more open-source, anonymous platform. Promising to deviate from the censorship which affects the Facebookers and Googlers of this world, it was said to be aimed at those who “simply want a better internet”.
The well-known hacking group Anonymous has issued yet another statement regarding the recent arrests by the FBI and PayPal's decision to block donations to WikiLeaks. In response, Anonymous is urging the service's users to close their accounts.
Just when we thought constant attacks targeting tech and financial companies were over, a hacking group that calls itself AntiSec, mostly comprised of Anonymous and Lulz Security members, allegedly broke into Apple's servers and stole some 26 administrative usernames and hashed passwords and posted them publicly.
LulzSec are the new hackers on the block, and they mean business. Over the last five weeks Lulz Security have been on a hacking spree, targeting a number of high profile companies across a selection of varied industries.
