Hackers group Lulzsec has intensified its action against cyber security and has even teamed up with group Anonymous to counter foreign government efforts to track them down. LulzSec announced its decision to team up with Anonymous via its Twitter and website: "To increase efforts, we are now teaming up with the Anonymous collective and all affiliated battleships."
Both hacker groups have put down several websites including that of large companies Sony Corp and government agencies across the globe. The groups announced their collaboration called Operation Anti-Security moments ago in a post uploaded on Pastebin. "Welcome to Operation Anti-Security (#AntiSec) - we encourage any vessel, large or small, to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path. We fully endorse the flaunting of the word "AntiSec" on any government website defacement or physical graffiti art," the post read. LulzSec encouraged people to "spread the word of AntiSec far and wide, for it will be remembered."
LulzSec said that their "top priority is to steal and leak any classified government information, including email spools and documentation. Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments. If they try to censor our progress, we will obliterate the censor with cannonfire anointed with lizard blood." "As we're aware, the government and whitehat security terrorists across the world continue to dominate and control our Internet ocean. Sitting pretty on cargo bays full of corrupt booty, they think it's acceptable to condition and enslave all vessels in sight. Our Lulz Lizard battle fleet is now declaring immediate and unremitting war on the freedom-snatching moderators of 2011."
LulzSec invited people to join the "rebellion", "Whether you're sailing with us or against us, whether you hold past grudges or a burning desire to sink our lone ship." "Together we can defend ourselves so that our privacy is not overrun by profiteering gluttons. Your hat can be white, gray or black, your skin and race are not important. If you're aware of the corruption, expose it now, in the name of Anti-Security," LulzSec wrote.
Proposed Law on Cyber Security
Companies based in the United States will be asked to disclose details of their basic level of protection for consumers and will also be forced to notify government when data is stolen. In a proposed legislation by Representative Mary Bono Mack, a Republican from California, targets to protect consumers and companies alike cope with the series of data breaches.
