Lulz sifts through data as Op AntiSec continues

Posted by Trent Nouveau

LulzSec downed two Brazilian government websites earlier today as Operation Anti-Security continues with little end in sight.

"Our Brazilian unit is making progress. Well done @LulzSecBrazil, brothers!" the group tweeted on Wednesday.

"TANGO DOWN TANGO DOWN brasil.gov.br and presidencia.gov.br."

The group also confirmed it was organizing massive amounts of data obtained via various hack and extract raids, as the cyber world braced itself for the inevitable.

"To all the eager and intelligent press, our tweets are lighthearted, but the work is ongoing hard," a Lulz rep explained. "We have a lot of data to sift through."

Meanwhile, Ryan Cleary, the 19-year-old arrested yesterday for his alleged links with LulzSec, is currently being questioned at a London police station. 

Although Cleary stand accused of attacking the website of Britain's Serious and Organised Crime Agency (Soca), the hacker could eventually be extradited to the United States to face additional charges.

"[Ryan] would have to be charged here first if any offense has been committed, because he was allegedly attacking the Soca website when he was arrested," a source told the UK's Telegraph.

"But the investigation into his activities was being driven by the FBI, and it seems likely they will want to have him extradited to the US so they can question him about attacks on American websites."
