LulzSec, the hacker group, has opened a call-in line to take suggestions for the next hacking targets.
Now accepting calls from true lulz fans - let's all laugh together at butthurt gamers. 614-LULZSEC, accepting as many as we can, let's roll, tweeted LulzSec yesterday.
A few hours later the group claimed to have missed 5,000 calls and received 2,500 voicemails. The 614 area code represents the metropolitan area of Columbus, Ohio, but authorities can hardly locate members of LulzSec by the area code.
Today, LulzSec seems to have redirected the overwhelming number of phone calls to other numbers. 614-LULZSEC or 732-993-7703 | You can create insane lulz by calling these numbers, wanna join in the phone DDoS? the group tweeted a couple of hours ago. It added, Our number literally has anywhere between 5-20 people ringing it every single second. We can forward it anywhere in the world.
Lulzsec has embarked on a series of high-profile hacking attacks on Bethesda Softworks, PBS, the FBI, the U.S. Senate, and most notably, Sony.
On June 14, LulzSec called the day Titanic Takeover Tuesday, attacking a handful of gaming companies' websites, including the Escapist, Eve Online, Minecraft and League of Legends. The hacker group tweeted, Welcome to #TitanicTakeoverTuesday where everyone is laughing at crybabies getting Lulz Cannoned!
As defined by New York Times in 2008, lulz means the joy of disrupting another's emotional equilibrium. Lulz is hacker speak for laughs. The hacker group, unlike Anonymous, seems to have no political interest, but simply hacks for the fun of it.
