TomsGuide reports It all started when a LulzSec favorite website PasteBin announced they had a new twitter handle, LulSec responded with:

“If @pastebin reaches 75,000 followers we’ll engage in a mystery operation that will cause mayhem,” LulzSec said on Twitter.

Pastebin soon had many followers and LulzSec did what they promised.

As of 12:06 AM Tuesday The Sun and News International are down – A quick ping of the site’s IP ( shows no connections are being made, indicating the use of LulzSec’s weapon of choice, the distributed denial of service attack OR the news empire decided to turn the websites off.
In May, LulzSec made news for the the first time with a similar attack against the website of PBS Newshour, in which it posted a false news story announcing that deceased rapper Tupac Shakur had been found “alive and well” in New Zealand. By then the gang had already hacked Sony’s Japanese website, and before that, where the group stole and posted 363 employee passwords, the names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of 73,000 people who had signed up for audition information for the Fox talent show The X-Factor.

LulzSec has had access to Bill Akass – News of the World’s managing editor MD5 password since 17 July 2011. They have been sitting on the data for over 24 hours now an opportunistic time with the Parliament visit tomorrow.

LulzSec is reported to have received over six thousand us dollars of donations trough the BitCoin Currency.
We are awaiting LulzSec PirateBay Account for the release of Emails.

More to follow, ongoing story.
