Instead of taking down the good guys this time around, Lulz Security has focused their efforts on taking down an Islamist extremism website, AlJahad.com. Lulz Security mentioned on its Twitter feed that it has successfully managed to bring down the website (it is still down at this time of writing). It seems to be a response to another hacker, The Jester, who has been taking down other extremist websites on his own time as well.
Finally, a hacking move we can all agree on. Let’s hope these guys keep going after the bad guys and not video game companies anymore. After all I’m pretty sure all gamers are pretty fed up about having their details stolen and favorite networks going down.
