A series of takedowns by law enforcement around the world may be taking its toll on the hacking group LulzSec. DailyTech claims that a number of recent police raids have seen the heart of the organization torn out. The first major arrest was LulzSec's chief ‘Topiary’ in the Shetland Islands, who is currently in jail awaiting trial. Recently five UK residents were detained, including supposed LulzSec leader ‘Kayla’.
According to reports two LulzSec members – ‘Sabu’ and one unnamed other believed to be called ‘Avunit’ – remain free. Other members including ‘Tflow’, ‘Recursion’ and ‘Pwnsauce’ have had run ins with law enforcement.
The group’s Twitter account has been silent for the last two months, which is a good indication that members are either already in trouble or laying low until things cool down.
While this probably isn't the end of the group, chances are their entire operation remains non-functional at the moment. Whether it remains that way we do not know.
