Hackers LulzSec Dissolved: News To Those Affected

Since April 20th when Sony’s PlayStation Secure Network was hacked into, we have reported on various organisations that have been also been targeted. Take Nintendo, Microsoft, NHS, Codemasters, Sega, the US Senate and so on. But for the hacking group Lulz Security or LulzSec as they are also known, the time is up for the hacking attacks to stop!

According to the guys over at Mashable, the group have now put their hands up and announced via their website and Twitter that they will be dissolving their current group. It seems that they only ever wanted their attacking mission to last out for 50 days, with the hope that they would be able to get the AntiSec movement revived, which are totally against the work that the computer security industry carry out.

In a statement from LulzSec they said, “For the past 50 days we’ve been disrupting and exposing corporations, governments, often the general population itself, and quite possibly everything in between, just because we could.” They added “All to selflessly entertain others – vanity, fame, recognition, all of these things are shadowed by our desire for that which we all love.”

As sky.com reported, LulzSec stated, “Our planned 50 day cruise has expired, and we must now sail into the distance, leaving behind – we hope – inspiration, fear, denial, happiness.. hate, even love.”

To end all attacks, it has also come to light that possible information has been taken from Disney, Universal, EMI, FBI, AOL and AT&T.

Tell us what your thoughts are on this? Have we actually learnt anything from the attacks? Or is this just the start of things to come?
