Governments vs Hackers – Cyberwar Continues #AntiSec
The AntiSec Campaign which started a few days ago as a partnership between hacker groups LulzSec and Anonymous, is a cat and mouse game between the hackers and the governments they target. One member of LulzSec, Ryan Cleary, a 19 year old from Wickford, Essex, UK, is suspected by authorities to be a leader of the group as well as being the brains behind the attacks on the FBI, CIA and Sony sites. He was arrested by British Police yesterday in a “pre-planned intelligence raid”. He has allegedly performed these acts from a computer in his mother’s house.
In another part of the world, the Brazilian wing of LulzSec seems to be accomplishing their mission(s) quite well. In a tweet from Lulzsec, the group congratulated their Brazilian unit.
[quote]Our Brazilian unit is making progress. Well done @LulzSecBrazil, brothers![/quote]
Meanwhile, Anonymous has not been sitting idle. In a video released a few hours ago, the group urged anyone from around the world who believed in freedom of speech and anti-censorship of the Internet to stand up for their rights and join them.
This cyber war seems to be heating up, with the hackers targeting governments around the world. We shall keep you updated on the action as it happens. Stay tuned.
