This is getting interesting! Lulzsec, the high profile anonymous group of hackers, claims that the 19 year old kid hacker who was arrested by Scotland Yard and FBI in Essex UK is not their leader or anyone associated with them.
Earlier today, the British police announced the arrest of a teenager from Essex, UK, believed to be the mastermind behind Lulzsec hacker group. Though the police didn’t reveal the name of the arrested hacker, a simple Google search reveals the name of the 19 year old teenager.
LulzSec have infamously attacked several high profile websites like that of Sony PSN and CIA.
Since last night, there were reports that LulzSec have hacked the UK 2011 census data containing personal details of with millions of UK citizen respondents. Lulzsec has dismissed this report outright –
“Not sure we claimed to hack the UK census or where that rumour started, but we assume it’s because people are stupider than you and I.”
“I’m not seeing “we hacked the UK census” on our twitter feed or website… why does the media believe we hacked the UK census? #confusion”
Update: Lulzsec has removed some of the tweets quoted above. We are not sure why they did that!
