We all know of LulzSec and their online antics such as hacking Nintendo and Sony and for hacking broadcasters such as Fox and PBS. Well, as of June 26th 2011 LulzSec have in fact disbanded. Yes you heard (or read) me right.

Lulz Security - Gone for good, or just until the heat dies down?

On June 25th LulzSec kept announcing on their Twitter account about how they had a surprise for everyone at midnight, which they then counted down to closer to the time. At midnight they released their ’50 days of Lulz statement’ for the world to read. The statement basically explains that LulzSec are people just like everyone else and that they only set out to do what they did for 50 days and part of the statement reads “it’s time to say bon voyage. Our planned 50 day cruise has expired, and we must now sail into the distance, leaving behind – we hope – inspiration, fear, denial, happiness, approval, disapproval, mockery, embarrassment, thoughtfulness, jealousy, hate, even love. If anything, we hope we had a microscopic impact on someone, somewhere. Anywhere.”

The full statement can be found at

LulzSec have not given any reason (other than that 50 days was their planned time) as to why they have parted but many feel that they have done this for now because of the latest police investigations, and that they may even return when the heat is off them.

Although LulzSec have disbanded they have urged their supporters to continue on without them.

So what does all of this mean? Has LulzSec gone for good or are they just taking some time out? Well there is no indication of whether they will be back or not but with everything they have done in the short time they were here I have a feeling we will be hearing from them again.

As of June 26th LulzSec have not posted anything else on their Twitter account nor have they updated anything on their website since their ’50 Days of Lulz statement’.

What are your thoughts on LulzSec? Do you think they were right to do what they did? Do you think they will be back, or are they gone forever?
