LulzSec is a group of Web hackers who made themselves famous for their barrage of attacks and their sarcastic taunting of victims during the summer of 2011. Members of LulzSec, short for Lulz Security, committed many well-publicized online attacks in the span of several weeks.
The successful attacks included publicizing hundreds of thousands of passwords and user names from customers of supposedly secure Web sites. LulzSec’s history is a short, busy one. The group’s first known attack occurred in May 2011. By July 2011, 50 days after its first publicized hack, Lulz Security released a statement saying it would be disbanding.
In between, LulzSec was in the news almost daily. LulzSec: 50 Days of Lulz is a book that offers an eye-opening account of the headline-grabbing hacker group. In this eBook, you'll learn what motivated LulzSec, what methods they used, and how their attacks affected the world.
