Hacktivism = Hack + Activism
Hacktivism or hacktivist, is someone who uses hacking to bring about political and social change. Hacktivism started as a way for people to protest online to affect change.
LulzSec = Lulz as in lols or laughter and Sec, short for security, was formed in a private online chatroom of the hacking collective “Anonymous”. They appeared in May 2011 after targeting Fox.com They then went on to target US Broadcasting network PBS and distributed a fake story about the whereabouts of the dead rapper’s Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, claiming they were alive and living in New Zealand.
LulzSec unsuccessfully targeted Nintendo but did manage to attack Sony’s Playstation Network and stole 24.6 million of customer’s private data which therefore caused the company’s network to be offline for a couple of days.
Although LulzSec may have been in some way a protest, of all the logo’s they could have chosen to create, they could have been more original and not make it look like a sort of sophisticated Pops from Regular Show.
