After the FBI carried out raids throughout the country looking for AntiSec hacktivists, LulzSec and Anonymous released a statement to say that they were not scared of the FBI any more and they were not going anywhere.
Several days ago, a series of raids were carried out by the US authorities on alleged hackers across the country. As a result, from 14 to 16 people were arrested and a number of homes were raided. Still, there is little information on who exactly was arrested, but it became clear that it wasn’t a large hacker crackdown like the FBI might have expected, because all of the major hacker groups continued operating as usual. The suggestions were made that the FBI arrested people who have been merely running applications assisting in DDoS attacks instead of real masterminds in the hacking groups.
Today LulzSec and Anonymous have issued a joint statement, claiming that the threats of the FBI wouldn’t deter hacktivists from carrying out their activities. The statement was published at PasteBin and carried comments made by the FBI. For example, the FBI commented that it was criminal to hack the websites in the first place. In response, the hackers claimed that the government hasn’t exactly been behaving perfectly either. Moreover, hacker groups said they considered the governments and corporations as their enemy and promised to continue fighting them with all methods, including breaking into their sites.
LulzSec and Anonymous claimed they weren’t scared any more, and pointed out that the FBI couldn’t arrest the very idea of fighting, so the threats to arrest individual hackers were meaningless. Instead, any attempt to do so could only make US citizens angrier, and hacker would support those people. In addition, the statement engaged the FBI on another issue, saying that the web has become too important for too many people, which made the hackers to ensure online freedom is protected.
As we can see from the dialogue, neither side is expected to back down any time soon. Indeed, unless the authorities are able to make some serious inroads in to the hacktivists, it will be too difficult to maintain the idea that the government is capable of stopping them at all. Actually, nothing can be more damaging to the FBI than the idea of the FBI being desperate enough to arrest anyone connected with Anonymous, even if it was the person who just mentioned it in the conversation.

|They have my support|
|Thanks for keeping us updated sam|
|Hackers are Scum|
hacktivists,. more like Terrorists, they're causes are never justified.
|@ Tparsons5150 so what LEA do you work for? better yet why are you even on this site doing what your doing? Please explain! You see you are Downloading hacked material. everything here that has a link unless it is freeware, is hacked and altered. It amazes me how ignorant people have become. You should delete your account and never visit another torrent site again, because then you will have to hate yourself, is that the path you want to follow? Just saying man, pot calling the kettle black|
Attacking companies/gov and downloading movies and so on is a big difference.
By the sounds of it your the ignorant one.
|not scared until they get nabbed then they cry like wee ones & grass out their mates!|
|the bigger pic here is how many times has a government hacked a person/ business yet they justify with by bring criminal charges but who keeps the governments straight the average person doesnt know whats going on and the government wont tell so its up to the people to keep the governments straight. i know their are those who abuse the power on both sides that will never change. just my opinion...|
|No man everything is equal, plain and simple, the only difference in your mind is the fact that you get to enjoy one over the other. You can rationalize all you want but its all the same.|

|well it`s all down to freedom is not free you must fight for your freedom ergo the natzies the german people let there freedom be taken away by ther government !!!!|
long live the fight on freedom
|From reading the posts so far many of you just don't get it. Freedom for internet? WTF... All the azzholes have done is screw with people like you and I... Stealing or personal information and more. I am not on anyone's side yet these azzhole hackers if you want to call them are nothing more than criminals. They have not targeted Government, agency and etc. they have messed with you and I again. They are not fighting for freedom or what ever crap you spout but total chaos and all this is going to cost you and I MONEY and more loss of our FREEDOMS than ever..|
They not scared of the FBI? BS... only an idiot or total moron would state that. Your dealing with a power of international reach, unlimited resources and most of all THEY CAN KILL YOU... The recent raids were no more than information fishing expeditions and they are squeezing the little fish to get to the real trouble makers.
Allot of you posters keep blaming all the problems are caused by the USA? Jeez what idiots you are... This problem covers ALL COUNTRIES...
There will be some a pull back of a majority of monetary assistance to countries by the USA; pullback of forces and much more. Then when your azz is in a crack who are you going to cry to? Your own government?
Country Governments are nothing today; they all are run by the banks and other mega multinational companies..
These people are not stupid to be where they are today; they have allot of yo right where they want you; blaming each other instead of looking and blaming the real problems. You all are sheep..
I have traveled allot and allot of you that post claiming to know world events and how things work are ignorant of the real world. What that is? The real world doesn't give a shyte about you and I...
Now let the flame wars start and have at it you trolls... I expect it...
|I agree with post 13, if they are fighting for us why are they hacking sites and posting 'our' info lol and freedom on the net I can agree on and yes what is done here isnt legal but appreciated , movies are not hacked' they are copied, programs are cracked, come on now all get it straight, as far as freedom on the net I do not have to answer to anyone to logon nor does anyone else pay my bill nor protect my pc, all in all the Man usually gets his man and game over and someone new starts, but as far as these hactivists helping me any its just not happening and have they donated anything to this site yet nor anything to help or improve it. afraid not...im no hater im just typing the truth|
|here is one example 'Hackers claimed that they had managed to obtain usernames and passwords of almost 500 of the Toshiba's customers' do you own any toshiba products?|
|Hackers are doing great job FBI can't stop them ..|

|This doesn't happen very often, but this time I do agree with menahunie @13. These hackers are messing with us-Joe Public, you and I, our personal details. I don't care if they hack into Sony or Toshiba, as I'm not registered with them like the MAJORITY of people. Why aren't they opening up the sordid goings on of the MPAA and similar? Is it because they aren't good enough and only go after the easy targets. I don't know, I'm not a hacker!|

|I thought that pic was off psychayogi |
|Despite the fact that these hackers claim they are not scared of the FBI. I must say they are on a suicide mission. No man wars with State authorities and hopes to win even if they (hackers) are well funded. It well known law-breakers maybe a step ahead but there comes a time there guards will be open. Time is all the security agencies have before catching up with em. As the saying goes...the man who wants to commit suicide has the initiative. I don't wish them luck cos they wouldn't need it.|
|cant say that i dont blame them after reading the article above saying that they arrested the wrong people, lmao|
