Lulzsec and Anonymous are declaring open war on all governments, banks and big corporations, worldwide. They are attempting to unite all hackers to fully expose corruption and “dark secrets”.
“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. 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. 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.”
Don’t be fooled by this diatribe. The highlighting is mine, but the intentions are clear. This is online terrorism, and it is totally illegal. This sort of behavior is itself corrupt. I’m all for making a difference, I support bringing about positive change, but there is a time, a place, and a proper methodology to follow. This just isn’t it for me. I’m not posting links to this, you can Google it up easily enough if you are that interested.
So far, they have not done anything that I have seen that rings true to this “eat the rich” campaign. They have broken the law, caused large companies reputational and financial hardship, and have expsoed countless individuals to unnecessary risk by posting personal and account information publicly. What information do those “Prime Targets” hold? So much for Robin Hood. Stealing from the poor to hurt the rich??
TNW has posted a handy little widget available if you would like to check all of the LulzSec released files for your email address to see if your accounts have been exposed. If your email is there, your other information may be as well.
