Less than a week after hactivist group LulzSec called it quits, a hacker
group to which its members migrated mounted separate attacks on Viacom
and Vivendi SA's Universal Music Group as well as on a previous LulzSec
target, the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS).
Last Saturday, hacking group LulzSec, aka the Lulz Boat, announced
online that it was ceasing operations, ending a 50-day hacking spree
that included attacks on the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S.
However, at the same time it called for others to carry on; advice its
own members--who have joined forces with hackers from the Anonymous
group to form a new group, #AntiSec--are taking.
#AntiSec has claimed responsibility for several new hacks, including
another on the Arizona DPS, the second the department experienced in a
Tegatai Managed Colocation: Four Provider Blended
Tier-1 Bandwidth, Fortinet Universal Threat Management,
Natural Disaster Avoidance, Always-On Power Delivery
Network, Cisco Switches, SAS 70 Type II Datacenter.
