LULZ is a version of LOL on steroids. It kind of means for shits and giggles.

We should use the English translation of "Al-Qaeda" it's, "The Base".

I would love for Obama to declare war on Americans and pull the Internet kill switch. Google, Apple, and Microsoft stock prices would go to zero overnight.

The mainstream media lost control of the message to sell their version of alternate reality to the American people. We get the true version of reality from the Internet now and the ruling elite don't like it. That's the main reason they are trying to shut down the Internet. Most hack attacks are government inside jobs for reasons we are very aware of.

As is clear from Libya, he doesn't need any declarations of war, as is clear from his record, he doesn't need any constitution or congress to continue his war (fundamental tranformation) on the US.

Awesome! If there's anything that needs to be destroyed from within, it is Infragard. "A Public-Private Partnership" to be corporate spies who report to the FBI. Every executive gets to wear a badge and be the agent they wanted to be. And spy on people and do real damage too, say, competitors by feeding false info. Kinda like selling your tribal enemies to the American soldiers in Afghanistan.

Another suspect operation:

The notorious military contractor formerly known as Blackwater along with intelligence operations program Able Danger has formed a new spy firm called Jellyfish Intelligence.

Xe Services LLC and Able Danger claim the Jellyfish Intelligence is a “law-abiding” firm, which aims to sell intelligence to wealthy corporations

Please Tyler, when will you start doing stand up? One of these days I too will shoot a liquid through my nose. On a side note, I'm starting to wonder if these "attacks" aren't just to take more control of the Internet by TPTB. What's next and Internet version of the Patriot Act?

I agree with the Good Doctor.  If it is an outside group hacking the FBI website (even though funny to some degree) only brings the harsh reality of a regime that will do anything to hold power, such as turning off the internet Dont shit yourself, it is coming!!!

Or, another inside job of creating a false flag against the US govt so that they can again take over and hold us down by shutting down the net.  Dont shit yourself, it is coming!!!

Yen Crossover, I question just about any BS that you type (especially talking about the small of a womens back and all that crap).  You know nothing.

Two possibilites.

#1) They get away with it, indefinitely. Unlikely, but with the kind of budget cuts that are coming, not impossible. 

#2) A few of them get ID'd, arrested, prosecuted, and convicted. Just a few, the rest slip away. 

THAT's actually worse. Because, by the workings of a pretty well understood notion in criminology, if you can only catch a few perpetrators, to have any chance of deterent value, you must punish them proportionally more harshly than if caught them all. Think drug war. 

And then a portion the ones that got away will militarize. They will take their obvious skills (which may just be the abilty to realize the bad habits their opponents Just  Can't  Shake), which they have so far used for glorified vandalism . . . and they will weaponize them.

And that's trouble we've not seen. Obama's "smart grid" would be a thousand fatal catastrophes waiting to happen, in the sights of truly militant hackers. 

Well, I guess we'll see. I wish them luck. Anyone who occupies the FBI is okay with me.

Just visited the website in question (let`s hope LulzSec do have an Adsense revenue going). What should be a website proclaiming just how `good` the company is now looks more like a promotional flyer for `all-you-can-eat` buffets. `Pulling the plug` on the internet is more or less impossible (probably the best that could be hoped for would be the raising of somewhat porous Great Firewalls of China in the USA - but these would no doubt have some Microsoft technology in the solution and would therefore be pretty vulnerable). 

Anyway, congrats to LulzSec. :)

Sounds, to me, like LulzSec is just another CIA operation striking a blow to our personal freedoms and liberities. This is exactly the type of situation necessary in order to use the "internet kill switch", as was used in Eygpt. Or it could be the basis for widespread censorship, as is done in China. This group, while I fully support dissent, I question this particular situation, mocking the FBI on twitter (and the point is?), it is too convenient, just after the un-Patriot Act is renewed?

It's about impossible to know who is who in all this, but here are some links:

and finally a comment from Anonnews.org,

also there is this thing saying lulzsec is with the CIA. That must be the reason for them to provoke NATO so openly. they WANT cyberwar because it'd be a lot easier for them to create draconian legislation.

And here is the IRC log of the conversation with Karim

Which, unfortunately, is one of the intended effects of psyops and disinformation. Eventually it makes you question the validity of everything, creating confusion, inaction, and finally being resigned to your fate. Not able to offer a solution, just sayin.

Or, if don't religiously apply security patches ASAP.  The Sony breach was occurred thanks to a large number of antique versions of Apache.  They just used old exploits and gained root access. Nothing more than half-assed system administration.  (Or at least that's what I've read).
