In a catch-me-if-you-can explanation of why it has targeted the likes of Sony, the U.S. Senate, an FBI affiliate, and online porn sites, the LulzSec hacking group says it plans to keep having fun until it gets caught.
A statement the group has posted says going public with user personal details after a hack attack is better than keeping exploits private. It gives users a chance to change their passwords, the group says.
LulzSec says its hack attacks will continue until “we’re brought to justice, which we might well be.”
The group’s statement amounts to a manifesto and is surprisingly more erudite than might be expected.
“We’re attracted to fast-changing scenarios, we can’t stand repetitiveness,” the group says. “Nobody is truly causing the Internet to slip one way or the other, it’s an inevitable outcome for us humans.”
The group denies it’s locked in a hacker war with similar group Anonymous. This had been suggested after LulzSec targeted the 4Chan website with a denial of service attack following attempts by 4Chan users to expose members of LulzSec.
