FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Lulzsec Says Goodbye With a Torrent Full of Your Personal Information

Posted on Sunday, June 26 @ 14:38:21 Eastern by

The merry band of internet thieves known as LulzSec have decided to call it quits following the completion of their 50th day of... "lulz." The group has disbanded, but not before releasing a public statement and a whole mess of private information from their attacks. In their release, LulzSec states that:

Again, behind the mask, behind the insanity and mayhem, we truly believe in the AntiSec movement. We believe in it so strongly that we brought it back, much to the dismay of those looking for more anarchic lulz. We hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us. The support we've gathered for it in such a short space of time is truly overwhelming, and not to mention humbling. Please don't stop. Together, united, we can stomp down our common oppressors and imbue ourselves with the power and freedom we deserve.

This so-called "head of LulzSec" doesn't make a whole lot of sense throughout his or her statement, so all of this begs the question: What the fuck?

If this mess is really over, I give it a couple of days before some other jackass takes up the mantle and harasses the internet.

While LulzSec claim to have always planned for a "50 day voyage," the end of their activity could be more related to the arrest of suspected member Ryan Clearly in Great Britain. What you're probably wondering is what's contained in LulzSec's little torrent of a present they're leaving behind.

The torrent reportedly contains 550,000 Battlefield Heroes beta users, 50,000 passwords from gaming forums, AT&T internal documentation, 200,000 hackforums user information, AOL internal documentation and more. As if screwing over law-abiding citizens of the internet wasn't enough, LulzSec decided that the right thing to do would be to burn their hacking peers. You stay classy hackers! I'm sure you won't all eat each other alive if this keeps up.
