Hacker group LulzSec has decided to stop its hacking escapades after 50 days of activity as law enforcement agencies continue to search for the identity of its members.
LulzSec claimed that it had planned to quit after 50 days of creating havoc and exposing security vulnerabilities on websites belonging to prominent organisations.
The group was responsible for hacking into websites belonging to Sony, Nintendo, Fox, PBS, Bethesda Softworks, the CIA and the US Senate among others.
“Bon voyage. Our planned 50 day cruise has expired. For the past 50 days we’ve been disrupting and exposing corporations, governments, often the general population itself, and quite possibly everything in between, just because we could,” the group said in a statement on The Pirate Bay.
The group also thanked everyone for their support and hoped that the ‘movement’ they have started will continue without them.
Some people believe that the group is disbanding as efforts to expose their identities, both by law enforcement agencies and rival group Team Poison, intensify. Of course, considering the groups dedication to creating confusion and misleading people, there is no reason to believe that this declaration is genuine.
