LulzSec Continues Attacks

The hacker collective LulzSec, in the news yesterday for taking down EVE Online, The Escapist, League of Legends and Minecraft as well as a number of "special requests," has struck again.

The group has claimed responsibility for EVE Online's troubles this evening, noting that they are only hitting the login servers but "[CCP's website] is so crappy that it goes down with the logins." CCP published a statement to the community earlier noting that no personal information had been compromised in yesterday's attacks, and that the game was now back up and running. Not any more.

Alongside the DDoS attacks, the group also claims to have been harassing a number of companies via phone forwarding their number to victims such as magnets.com, World of Warcraft customer support and the FBI in Detroit.

LulzSec still doesn't seem to have a particular agenda -- or if they do, they're hiding it well. Unfortunately, as long as some Internet users continue to find their antics amusing, they'll continue their campaign of harassment.
