LulzSec has waged war on Anonymous. In their Tweets HERE and HERE, they mention seeing a posting on /b/ where Anonymous advised that LulzSec was being too aggressive and needed to back off on its attacks or be hunted by Anonymous.
In LulzSec’s reponse, they refer to Anonymous as /b/tards -which is not uncommon to see, but referring to them as furries and the “furry hoard” has begun to draw in some unwanted attention to furries. Hundreds of blogs and dozens of news sites have begun reprinting the tweets from LulzSec, and broadcasting them in some news casts and podcasts.
Since these postings, we’ve picked up new hits from several US Government IP addresses, including one coming in from the Department of Defense.
Nothing has happened for us so far, but we’re keeping an eye on things, just in case.
