Anonymous Picks up Slack as LulzSec Calls it Quits

One group of hackers is retiring, but don't expect the rate of attacks to slow down.

PCWorld: LulzSec, the group of hackers behind the attacks at Sony, Nintendo, and PBS announced over the weekend that they would be retiring after 50 days of causing mayhem. But that doesn't mean an end to high-profile cyberattacks, as the group is encouraging its 281,870 Twitter followers to begin following the Anonymous group instead.

On Monday, the Anonymous group released a 625MB file containing new materials on counter-hacking tools and addresses of U.S. FBI locations.
