Of all the news sites you could have picked, why fox?
Also what an absurdly sensationalised story. I doubt the fbi really gives that much of a shit. Lulzsec is harmless. People were up in arms when they hacked the CIA website when that is analogous to peeing on a wall outside the CIA building.
I don't know enough about any of this to say anything. Do tell Rayne.
They became notorious last year for taking down the playstation network. It was down for a couple of weeks and several accounts were compromised. But that has less to do with them being super leet hackers and more to do with Sonys security team being dumbasses because it was taken down TWICE. Since then they tried to start some sort of gay movement under the anonymous moniker by taking down the CIA wesbite and attempting to hack Paypal etc. They also hacked the newscorp website which is probably why fox is overstating their actions.
Who anon of lulz
There isn't any point in making a distinction.
Because anonymous is not some tangible group of people. It's just a label anyone can use, and at the core of it all the people behind this shit were just insanely bored 'anonymous' geeks who were stupid enough to think that hacking random websites makes some sort of political statement.
There has to be some sort of cohesion to pull off big hacks, saying otherwise is just silly.
