Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, after 50 days of causing amok on the web, the guys and/or girls behind LulzSec have called it quits last night. After hacking into the systems of various Arizona law enforcement agencies and releasing countless internal documents, they published a statement on Pastebin yesterday, dumping yet another boatload of data on The Pirate Bay, and announcing their disbanding.

"here's no denying that they have had their impact - for instance, an Australian ISP has announced not to participate in the voluntary net censorship Down Under out of fear of LulzSec. Call it what you want, but I call that a major win. "

right, since lulzsec is apparently no more, that means that that ISP will reconsider. right?

no win there for me.

Telstra (the Australian "ISP") is one of the largest telecoms companies in the world (~$40 billion capitalisation). They have nothing to fear from LulzSec.

Telstra is considering dropping internet filtering because of a customer backlash.

What, are you saying they're not afraid of some pimply teenagers who have mastered the art of downloading scripts?
