Lulz and Anonymous launch Operation Anti-Security
Lulz and Anonymous are joining forces to launch Operation Anti-Security, while declaring an "immediate and unremitting war" on the "freedom-snatching moderators" of 2011.
"As we're aware, the government and whitehat security terrorists across the world continue to dominate and control our Internet ocean," LulzSec explained in an official communiqué.
"Sitting pretty on cargo bays full of corrupt booty, they think it's acceptable to condition and enslave all vessels in sight... [Well], welcome to Operation Anti-Security (#AntiSec) - we encourage any vessel, large or small, to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path."
According to Lulz, "top priority" should be given to "steal and leak" any classified government information, including email spools and documentation.
"Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments. If they try to censor our progress, we will obliterate the censor with cannonfire anointed with lizard blood."
The group also emphasized it "fully endorsed" the flaunting of the word "AntiSec" on any government website or physical graffiti art.
"We encourage you to spread the word of AntiSec far and wide, for it will be remembered. [So], whether you're sailing with us or against us, whether you hold past grudges or a burning desire to sink our lone ship, we invite you to join the rebellion.
"Together we can defend ourselves so that our privacy is not overrun by profiteering gluttons. Your hat can be white, gray or black, your skin and race are not important. If you're aware of the corruption, expose it now, in the name of Anti-Security."
A Lulz tweet added that the "Oldschool Internet" was back.
"Anarchy is now - spread 'AntiSec' whenever and wherever you can. Is saying 'hackers unite' too cheesy?"
