We Are Anonymous Chapter 21

Hey people, and welcome back to more summaries of We Are Anonymous. In this chapter, LulzSec will proceed with their mischievous antics with more websites in the public. So many websites have been attacked by the hackers, what other website can be targeted? Well, we're about to find out! Here's what happened after the dust cleared from the recent Anon attack...

Kayla apparently had some trouble adjusting to the more "important" attacks for her team. She was more interested in assaulting LulzSec's nemesises such as the Jester and other rival hacker teams. What's new with the team? Well, LulzSec had just been placed on the NATO's and FBI's hit list, who are now officially hunting them down. The Pentagon had also issued an order (apparently because of the recent cyber-attacks) that any cyber-attack from other countries will be considered as an act of war and can be retaliated with traditional military forces.

Of course, the Anons were too used to this, they even made fun of their hunters. In fact, they replaced one of the FBI's websites with a video of a drunk man in a disco. They also did a few more hilarious changes to the authorities' websites, such as calling NATO's initials "National Agency of Tiny Origamis". Yep, that's just how mad the Anons were about the American authorities treating hacking as an act of war. They even hacked an FBI website, leaked its user base and defaced it (the website, that is). This wasn't actually an act of vengeance toward America's "act of war" law about hacking, although because of correct timing of the attack the media said it was.

Meanwhile, Hijazi (remember that white hat hacker company from the last chapter?) was at the breaking point. LulzSec had information about Hijazi about some cruel act that Hijazi was involved in. At first, the white hat refused to pay the Anons to keep silent, but eventually he gave in. Also, LulzSec had declared war on the United States (or at least part of it). To do this, they utilized a virtual private network to communicate undercover. However, there were some leaks in LulzSec's operation. For example, there were a few security leaks that proved that LulzSec wasn't exactly the skilled hacking team, but fortunately the flaws weren't big enough to stain LulzSec's reputation as a legendary hacking team.

There were also other hackers in the military who showed that they meant business; thye were often close to compromising some of LulzSec's members (fortunately for them, the identities weren't confirmed). Meanwhile around America, there were rumors about LulzSec's origins. Some people said that LulzSec hailed from China as agents for a cyber-war against the States. And then for some reason, the LulzSec members received Bitcoin donations. The donations were $7800 in total, which caused some commotion in the group. Nevertheless, the hackers decided to split up the money and also used it to invest for their new servers.

However, some bad news followed the attacks; some cops approached Sabu's house and arrested the hacker, causing a big loss to LulzSec. The media was also catching up to what was happening in LulzSec, such as the Fox assault and a few other impressive raids. Meanwhile, the Anons were noticing something fishy about what was happening. They thought that all these activities in the public was the beginning of something bad and was about to get worse. For a start, Sabu was arrested (fortunately, he was arrested for other crimes than hacking, so at least his real profession wasn't compromised yet), and LulzSec had been a whole lot less confident in hacking without him.

Sabu arrested, and LulzSec hunted down by the authorities. And not just by old-timey policemen; we're talking FBI agents and the army. Sooner or later, the team's got to cave in, mainly in light of the things that have happened lately. Or will they rise and dodge the cops? Will they live to hack another day? Or will they finally be caught and sent to jail, just like Sabu? Find out in the next chapter. For now, GOODBYE!
