Having gathered immense attention, the loosely bound group LulzSec announced they were disbanding. LulzSec has been responsible for recent cyber-attacks on significant government, corporate and law enforcement sites around the world. A security consultant stated that the group likely concluded that the more they keep up their activities, the higher the chance one of them would make a mistake and get caught, endangering the rest of the group as well.
The consultant also said it’s a primary numbers game, the more they keep doing this, the more law enforcement will add more investigators. However, a member representing the group said in an interview with the Associated Press that, “We’re not quitting because we’re afraid of law enforcement.
The press is getting bored with us, and we’re getting bored of us.” In a later interview, the member also acknowledged that some of the documents being circulated online which identify some information about the members were, in fact, genuine, which created a distraction for the group.
LulzSec is a group of about six members who claim to do this for the “lulz” of it, which is computer jargon for the laughs. The group says it is sitting on over 5 GB of data it has collected. In the latest round of releases filed, 338 of them detailed AT&T’s buildout plan for its LTE network noting the rollout is also having done while the company increases its backhaul technology and coverage. We were not able to talk to AT&T. However other media sources have said AT&T refused to comment on its build strategy.
