Well it appears Lulz-sec, the anarchy love hacktivist group responsible for the Nintendo, Sony, Bethesda etc. attacks, have "retired" according to their official twitter. The reason is that they say this was a 50 day project. However a lot of us know this isn't the case. Enter Team Poison. Personally I haven't heard of these guys until recently when they announced they'd reveal the Lulz-Sec data which is the real reason they're gone. Team Poison have released email adresses, IPs, Phone numbers, adresses, job info, relations (LINK TO THE FILE). We essentially have a snap shot of their lives. They even give proof which makes it even more hilarious. I personally couldn't be happier. I'm not a fan of hacking myself, unless it's for a good cause such as taking down Westboro Baptist Church related sites. Lulz-Sec were to me just pure idiots. They claimed to be fighting the whole Sec movement yet I don't see how alienating various fans would help. That's like a country going to war and bombing their own nation. Personally I feel that little bit more safer online now that they're gone and I know i'm going to find it hilarious when these guys pop up. A quick read of the Team Poison reveal shows us that they aren't your average joe and their countries are varied. The funniest thing I think is how they went on for ages about being an amazing hacker group and how they've now been brought down in a matter of around 2-3 days.

Hopefully now we can get a bit of a breather now that they're gone.
