LulzSec Bids Farewell

Companies out there can breathe a sigh of relief. LulzSec has put out a release saying it’s disbanding.

“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. All to selflessly entertain others – vanity, fame, recognition, all of these things are shadowed by our desire for that which we all love,” the release says.

The statement expresses hope that the AntiSec movement against the computer security industry will continue to swell into revolution. But, it says, “we are just people” who aren’t permanently tied to the LulzSec identity, and it’s time to go.

Mashable has a list of the companies that have been stricken by LulzSec, which includes Sony and the CIA website.

Hacker group Anonymous is still a threat, and Mashable is betting on others to rise in the wake of LulzSec, which has more than 277,000 followers on Twitter. So companies still need to be on guard and get their hack attack crisis plans in place.
