    Hmmm, only took them nearly a year. It's not like they weren't broadcasting all over twitter or anything.

    Chopping off the head of LulzSec? More like taking a truckful of sand from the beach... there's still more where that came from.

    I believe you're thinking of Anonymous. LulzSec consists of a small number of people.

    If you're referring to hackers in general, however, you're definitely correct.

    Funny how lulzsec and anonymous are still thought of as organized groups.
    When these people are sitting in prison, meanwhile attacks don't stop, there'll be one collective DERP heard from government organizations around the world. Then maybe they'll realize they have to take down every single hacker that claims lulzsec to "cut off the head".
    It'll be interesting to see what happens during this fiasco.

    I actually liked Lulzsec too. Such a shame the leader got arrested.

    They could have wreaked so much havoc if they had spent less time openly claiming responsibility for hacking attacks and bragging about how good they are at hacking and more time actually hacking things.


    Also I very much doubt that they have a command structure like a usual "criminal organization" - you cannot cut off the head of an amorphous blob.

    Hacking groups need a very clear structure. Depending on the security type a group is dealing with at a given time, one hacker cannot perform all the "duties", everybody needs to know when to chime in and what to do in a particular order - without structure, hacking groups just wouldn't work. They need an "overseer" who supervises all this, so it's as far from an amorphous blob as possible.

    Thank goodness they were caught, I have no idea why people cheered whenever they hacked services that YOU GUYS USE, making YOUR life more difficult, Sony's services among them.

    How do you cut the head off of an organization that isn't even organized?

    I'm fairly sure that members of Lulzsec do not know each other, much less have a defined "Head".

    Lulzsec isn't Anonymous - they know, well, knew eachother very well, informed eachother about the exploits of overseas groups and logged them all on their Twitter account.

    LulzSec hasn't done anything for months.
