Minor hacking of the site of the U.S. Senate

Lulzsec, the hacker group has reported in recent weeks by hacking into sites of Sony or the American television channel PBS, released documents showing that the group was able to partially penetrate the website of the U.S. Senate. Published documents are not particularly sensitive experiments, mostly of logs (operating history) of a site server.

"Is this an act of war, gentlemen?" pretends to question the group in a message accompanying the papers, referring to recent statements from NATO and U.S. military that a hacker could constitute an act of war, in which an armed response would be made. The Senate has decided to undertake an audit of all its security systems, but no confidential document was released by the pirates, who have apparently he could not fully penetrate the network of the Senate.

LulzSec also published this weekend several internal documents of the video game publisher Bethesda. The group claims to hold a list of two hundred thousand passwords for the accounts of players Brink, one of the publisher's titles, but do not have published "because we love this company." June 10, LulzSec had released thousands of IDs and passwords for porn site, and encouraged users to use this information to try to divert Facebook accounts and email users.
