Wickford, Eng. — LulzSec, the infamous hacker group that has hacked Sony, Nintendo and others, announced on Saturday that they will discontinue their service.
In its press release, LulzSec — short for Lulz Security — claimed that their company’s intention was to bring back the AntiSec movement, of which they “truly” believed in.
“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 announcement said.
LulzSec went on to explain in their announcement that they “hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us.”
The group released data allegedly taken from AT&T, Disney, Universal, EMI, AOL and the FBI after their announcement.
LulzSec’s announcement comes just days after the British police charged 19-year-old Ryan Cleary as an alleged mastermind behind the hacker group.
