LulzSec Quits! 50 Day Reign of Cyber Terror Over

Lulzsec calls it quits.  After fifty days of cyberattacks on various private and governmental agencies, the group decided to forego any more attacks–ending with the most recent on the Arizona State Police Department.

Lulzsec has been tied to various security breaches on Sony, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, the U.S. Senate, the U.K.’s Serious Organized Crime Agency, the Brazilian government public website and Petrobras.  Their attacks became more political in nature the further they went into their campaign.  At one point, they joined their counterpart, Anonymous in an effort to attack an even wider group of companies and firms.

The hactivist group suffered quite a hit when supposed leader was arrested by the UK police.  The group later denied that he was a leader, or that the 19-year old was even affiliated with them.

Lulzsec made its exit with a message on Pastebin.  In a grandiose tone, Lulzsec stated, “[We did this] all to selflessly entertain others — vanity, fame, recognition, all of these things are shadowed by our desire for that which we all love. The raw, uninterrupted, chaotic thrill of entertainment and anarchy.”
