MSNBC reports the shadowy hacking groups LulzSec and Anonymous are now working together and have claimed credit for launching a denial-of-service attack that earlier today took down the website of SOCA, the British police Serious Organized Crime Agency.

Lulz Security, also known as LulzBoat, has allegedly targeted numerous government and corporate websites. It reportedly attacked both the CIA and the Senate. In addition, the LulzSec group attacked Sony BMG, Nintendo.com , Sonypictures.com, PBS.org, Fox.com, US X Factor contestant database, Sonymusic.co.jp, InfraGard, and other corporations. Responsibility for the attacks is usually declared on Twitter.

In the past, according to MSNBC, LulzSec’s attacks were little more than noisome pranks that did not inflict serious damage, but in a message about the SOCA op they declared the intention to increase the severity of their attacks. “Top priority is to steal and leak any classified government information, including email spools and documentation. Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments,” LulzSec announced.

“We fully endorse the flaunting of the word ‘AntiSec’ on any government website defacement or physical graffiti art,” the purported LulzSec message continues. “We encourage you to spread the word of AntiSec far and wide, for it will be remembered. To increase efforts, we are now teaming up with the Anonymous collective and all affiliated battleships.”

The latest attack arrives one day before the Senate Judiciary Committee holds a hearing on the Obama administration’s cyber security legislative proposal in front of the subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, chaired by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat.

Are LulzSec Hacker Attacks the Work of Military Intelligence? 161008pptv3

The Judiciary Committee is one of several in the upper chamber that will take part in the negotiations over comprehensive cybersecurity legislation, which is expected to take its cues from the White House proposal made public last month, according to The Hill.

An earlier proposal would grant Obama dictator like power to shut down the internet.

Is it merely a coincidence so-called “hackitvists” – who release the passwords of common folkin addition to attacking the CIA and the FBI’s InfraGard – are engaged in this behavior just as the Senate debates weighty cyber security legislation?

PasteBin has released sketchy information casting a suspicious light on LulzSec. A former Marine in military intelligence operative going by the name “Nakomis” is allegedly a member of the group.

PasteBin has not offered any conclusive evidence that “Nakomis” is indeed a military intelligence operative, but considering the government’s full-court press to pass legislation seriously curtailing the internet in an effort to shut down the alternative media it cannot be ruled out.
