Italian Cyber Police Attacked By Anonymous And Lulzsec

It appears that hacker groups Anonymous and Lulzsec have taken a pledge to attack each and every security agency of the world. After FBI and CIA, they have now attacked Italian Cyber Police’s website and published their confidential data on their website.

The Cyber Security Unit admitted that they’ve been attacked but they didn’t comment whether any sensitive data has been stolen. On the other side, hackers claimed that they have had access to very sensitive data and in order to prove this, they published a series of documents as it is a custom of Lulzsec and Anonymous to release all the data they get access to.

The hackers claim that they’ve stolen 8 MB of sensitive data which contains Italian relations with Australia, Belarus, Egypt, Russia and Ukraine.

It should be noted that this attack come immediately after Anonymous and Lulzsec promised to make the security agencies pay back after they raided and arrested several Anonymous members.

Lulzsec announced last month that it would discontinue its hacking activities after an arrest was maid in UK. But it has continued its alliance with Anonymous which is known as AntiSec(Anti Security).

The increased number of cyber attacks by these two groups have put security agencies in turmoil. The total strength of these groups remains unknown. They’ve targeted every big name ranging from Sony, Nintendo, Apple Inc. to the security agencies like CIA and FBI.

When will they stop?
