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.

The hacker collective known as Lulzsec has singled out MMORPG Eve Online, Indie-Hit Minecraft and RTS League of Legends as their next targets. All three games faced distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on Tuesday and their login servers went down. Eve took its servers off the Public Internet when it realized what had happened. No news on when it would be back up. The Minecraft servers were the first to recover as they have faced massive DDoS attacks in the past, which might have helped them to rectify the situation faster. League of Legends seems to have fared no better.
The arm of Lulzsec seems to have grown long indeed and they seem to [...]
