Hacker group LulzSec released their 1000th tweet statement, so called a manifesto, to its friends and foes providing its rationale for its recent activities, proclaiming that this is the lulz lizard era, where we do things just because we find it entertaining.
LulzSec's recent victim list included PBS, Sony, Fox, porn websites, FBI, CIA, the U.S. government, and online gaming servers. As the hacking group proudly announced their victims list and publicly released hacked data, it claimed that the internet users should be beware. LulzSec suggests that users should not be fearing those who make their activity public but those who manipulate behind the scene.
“Do you feel safe with your Facebook accounts, your Google Mail accounts, your Skype accounts? What makes you think a hacker isn't silently sitting inside all of these right now, sniping out individual people, or perhaps selling them off? , LulzSec wrote. “You are a peon to these people. A toy. A string of characters with a value.”
Though acknowledging its illegal activity, the group continued to argue because it had told that they’re sitting on 200,000 Brink users right now that they never gave out, it might make the Brink users feel safe knowing what’s told, which will prompt the users to change their passwords.
LulzSec questioned: “What if we hadn't told you?” And its deviant answer follows: “No one would be aware of this theft, and we'd have a fresh 200,000 peons to abuse, completely unaware of a breach.”
Being aware of the argument that releasing everything in full is just as evil, what with accounts being stolen and abused, the group takes rather bizarre stance to such notion: “We release personal data so that equally evil people can entertain us with what they do with it.”
Gaining many supporters and equally overwhelming enemies, LulzSec ultimately promotes “the idea of wrecking someone else's online experience anonymously,” as convinced that “it's appealing and unique.”
The group promised to continue creating things that are exciting and new until they're brought to justice. Possibly, in 3 months, by then we might forget about LulzSec?
