The secretive hacking group known as LulzSec
has announced that it is formally disbanding
with the completion of its planned 50 days of mayhem. Among its many targets that it has hacked, including government sites, LulzSec struck at The Escapist
, Bethesda Game Studios
, League of Legends
, and EVE Online
LulzSec sent out a final statement, which said the group was a band of six hackers who had planned 50 days of attacks from the beginning. Now that the time is up, the group plans to fade into the shadows.
The group hopes that others will continue with these illegal activities: "Behind the mask, behind the insanity and mayhem, we truly believe in the AntiSec movement. We hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us."
While a suspected member of LulzSec was arrested a few days ago
, the organization denied that he was part of the collective.
