Not that lulzsec are relevant anymore. While the FBI have done a lot of wonderful detective work they're a hundred internet years too late. lulzsec shut down mid 2011. Why? Because their identities were outed by another hacker group. Now hackers quarrelling with each other is nothing new. The internet is full of big egos. lulzsec were well known for their bragging. Which is exactly why they were targeted by other hackers and exactly why they were going to be targeted by the authorities. Illegal hacking, as with any criminal enterprise, is nothing to brag about. This isn't a moral viewpoint. Most hackers are caught because they bragged. Once someone knows that message passes on and on the internet until it lands into some detective's inbox.
Putting aside that word of warning let's take a moment to remember the fallen.
Jack asked what the point of LulzSec was anymore. There is no point. There never was. I do agree with anuynmoos though. It is in the name... LULZ - Losers United Lacking Zyprexa Get a job, move out of mommy's basement and contribute something useful to society. If the only way you can feel good about yourself (or have a LULZ) is to tear down something that someone else has built then you have serious issues. The good news is... they make medication for that. Try some!!! Flame away skiddies...
Believe it or not, you can compromise sseytms and prove that you have the information that was extracted without putting any of the users at risk. That is the different between those who are ethical in their approach to security and those who are unethical. Lulzsec is unethical in every sense of the word. They break in to targeted sites with the intent to steal information and share it with the world. They are not out to protect users privacy or educate anyone. They are performing their attacks with absolutely selfish and malicious intent. When you declare "Anti-Sec" and rally for people to attack and expose any information that they find, that is in no way protecting or defending the average person. Even if they have an issue with a particular organization, exposing the personal information of those who work for that organization can (and in many cases will) do more damage to the individual than to the organization with which they are affiliated. How respectable is that? Imagine the potential impact on your life or someone you know/love if their financial information is one day compromised and shared by Lulzsec, then later used by one or more people who found the information after the group exposed it. How much would you respect them while you were speaking with your bank, credit card issuer, etc. to defend yourself against fraudulent charges that might be occurring all over the world. Ignoring the cold hard facts so that you can justify considering these people as respectable is just plain ignorant. You should be ashamed for even saying that.
