I donít like the Medias definition of 'Hacking' a DDoS attack is not hacking.

Another case of words being to crude to describe a situation.

Lulz are just doing it for the Lols...Pure and simple, the power of a relative few to cause such disruption to many must be very appealing...Considering we live in a time that tries to stamp out individuality and force people to conform. I can totally see why people would be seduced by such activities. Itís not an excuse, but it is most certainly a reason.

Remember how DRM and similar crap came to be? Oh! Right... Because assholes needed to prove a point. No, please go ahead and give reason to those who want to tie down the Internet and make it more controlled and secure and harder to use.

They've also targeted FBI affiliates, the US Senate, PBS, an Islamist Extremism site and Pron.com.

So nothing related to myself yet. I'll feel slightly less amused by the whole thing if they target Steam. Then again I tier my passwords across different accounts so I'm not sure how affected I'd be if they did hit something I use. Interesting that they haven't had anything happen to them yet after consistent attacks for 5 weeks now.

This helped me understand the situation a bit more:

I agree this plays right into the hands of people who want to tighten the reins on the internet, which is most defiantly not a good thing : (

I think anonymity and safety in numbers has lead to Lulz being able to operate in the manner they do. The more authorities expose them the less likely they are going to want to face prison time for taking down random services.

I defiantly wouldnít want to do time for inconveniencing some EVE players. Sony was targeted out of some vague principles, these new attacks are just because they can...No amount of belly aching is going to change that.

I think they do this because of the attetion they are getting from the caos they generate. The best solution in this case is to just let them die in the anonimity.
Just don't talk about them anymore...

I don't like this, as I imagine most don't either. Are Lulzsec really trying to help, or just being a pain? How long before they just start hacking every PC in sight?

Attack Minecraft? Why? I might not like the game but the developers seem like nice people.

I was also wondering why I couldn't access the Escapist last night (fancied watching some old ZP).

Not just for the Lulz, they attacked Eve due to Dust being PS3 only, believing it's a big "F*ck you" to the pc crowd who made CCCP all there money..

I believe the escapist attack was due to comments posted on the site about them and i have no idea why they targeted minecraft...

I'm not surprised they attacked league of legends too, the playing community is the hight of arseholeness...

Actually it would appear an alliance called Atlas is claiming responsibility for paying Lulzsec to do it, and rather dumbly (in my opinion) appear to have announced it on their site.

something to do with, Operation: Free Shmak Datash.

"DDos Demitrios [ 2011-06-14 19:52:45 ]
KEEP IT COMING BITCHES! :P
FREE SHMAK DATASH! Demitrios [ 2011-06-14 18:34:54 ]
We would like to annouce that Atlas. has paid LulzSec to carry out the final, and most important stage of Operation: Free Shmak Datash.

TAKE THAT GM HORSE / NOVA!

I await your pitiful attempt to attack me by banning my account, ****ers."
