LulzSec disavows alleged Census hack

And denies leader's arrested

Security for virtualized datacentres

While the UK government might still be checking systems, it seems that LulzSec themselves have denied hacking the UK census.

A recent Twat from LulzSec's Twitter feed said: "Not sure we claimed to hack the UK census or where that rumour started, but we assume it's because people are stupider than you and I."

This is followed by: "I'm not seeing "we hacked the UK census" on our twitter feed or website... why does the media believe we hacked the UK census?"

A previous message noted: "Seems the glorious leader of LulzSec got arrested, it's all over now... wait... we're all still here! Which poor bastard did they take down?"

A 19-year-old man was arrested in Essex earlier today.

A PasteBin note earlier today appeared to suggest the collective had grabbed UK census data.

But as LulzSec notes - "anyone can cut and paste the Lulz Boat ASCII art and general lighthearted theme."
