June 20, 2011, 5:46 PM — LulzSec and Anonymous, which spent a week making believe they hated each other so people would pay attention, are BFFs again.
Not only did they make up over the weekend, they agreed they're the "white hat hackers" (Lulz used the phrase), and agreed to join forces for an all-for-(no)one, two-for-(no)one project called Operation Anti-Security that apparently consists of encouraging other people to Be Hackers, Too.
"We encourage any vessel, large or small, to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path," according to a statement from LulzSec, which is way more impressed than anyone else in the tiny joke it used to name its Twitter feed the LulzBoat.
"We fully endorse the flaunting of the word "AntiSec" on any government website defacement or physical graffiti art. We encourage you to spread the word of AntiSec far and wide, for it will be remembered. To increase efforts, we are now teaming up with the Anonymous collective and all affiliated battleships."
The Lulz crew isn't so sure, at least about denizens of the /b/ boards at 4Chan, the main site associated with Anonymous.
"To confirm, we aren't going after Anonymous. 4chan isn't Anonymous to begin with, and /b/ is certainly not the whole of 4chan. True story."
Anonymous still has the Spanish police on the run, after taking down its sites in retaliation for the arrest of alleged Anonymi.
