The internet is a wonderful place for learning new things and interacting with many different people. However, as much fun as it can be, it can be the total opposite. Cyber attacks are very much a real threat sadly.
One such example of how bad (And actually screwed up) some cases can get is LulzSec. LulzSec is a hacking group that was formed in one of Anonymous’ private online chat rooms. There was a case where LulzSec hacked multiple companies servers. There, they obtained private information of employees and created chaos by doing so. Supposedly their main reason for doing so was just to show holes in the company’s security system. Regardless of their intention, their actions were uncalled for and outright wrong.
Surprisingly enough, the LulzSec members only knew each other by their online handle and didn’t know their real identities.
