Move over Anonymous. It used to be that whenever something was hacked, we turned your way. Gave you blame or credit.
But now there’s another. LulzSec. These Internet pranksters seem more excited about causing “Fight Club” style mayhem then promoting the cause of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. But, just like Anonymous, it’s hard to classify the entire organization. Because the organization is simply an aggregate of individuals with individual ideals. Some like hacking into Facebook accounts and changing profile pictures to disturbing imagery. Some like hacking into major online databases and publicizing their work.
And just like mainstream media outlets aren’t publishing cartoons of Muhammad just to prove they believe in free speech, they’re largely leaving LulzSec alone. It’s hard to blame them.
