Two notorious hacking groups – LulzSec and Anonymous – have teamed up for “Operation Anti-Security” (AntiSec), an act of declaring cyber war against corrupt governmental agencies and the UK's Serious Organized Crime Agency (SOCA) has become its first target .
LulzSec, a group who claimed responsibility for the recent hacks on Sony, Fox.com, CIA and the US Senate, has announced their intention to “steal and leak” any government information.
“As we're aware, the government and whitehat security terrorists across the world continue to dominate and control our Internet ocean… Our Lulz Lizard battle fleet is now declaring immediate and unremitting war on the freedom-snatching moderators of 2011,” LulzSec said.
The report also mentioned the teaming up with another large hacking group Anonymous for this new operation and asked others to join.
“Whether you're sailing with us or against us, whether you hold past grudges or a burning desire to sink our lone ship, we invite you to join the rebellion. Together we can defend ourselves so that our privacy is not overrun by profiteering gluttons,” LulzSec said.
The first attack was apparently on Serious Organized Crime Agency (SOCA) of the U.K., who was forced to shut down its website on Monday. “Tango down – soca.gov.uk - in the name of #AntiSec,” twitted LulzSec.
However, there appears to be no leaked data at the moment.
LulzSec said they will “unleash fire on multiple targets” and that “Lulz Cannon is being upgraded” on their Twitter.
