Anonymous claims LulzSec merger

Yet more hacktivist prankster shenanigans promised

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Anonymous claims that members of the notorious (recently disbanded) prankster hacking group LulzSec have joined its group.

"All @LulzSec members have reported aboard" according to an update to the @AnonymousIRC Twitter account. A later post claimed the move has nothing to do with the recent arrest of an alleged member of LulzSec by UK police.

The joint forces of hacktivism / anti-security performance art have reportedly turned their attention to blasting Tunisian web sites as part of a campaign against state censorship of the net in the country.

Anonymous also leaked what it claimed was a "counter cyber-terrorism training file" onto file sharing networks. The Torrent seems to include data harvested from insecure government sites by members of LulzSec but this is more than a little unclear.

Meanwhile TeaMp0isoN, another hacking group that rose to prominence with the release of what purported to be Tony Blair's contact list last weekend, pledged to carry on as an independent hacking crew. "Unlike @lulzsec, our movement dosent have an expiry date. . . . we wont ever backdown, this means a lot to us, time for a manifesto," it said. ®
