Anonymous & LulzSec Teaming Up For One Last Horah Against Paypal, Operation PayBack Resumes as #OpPaypal

The official Anonymous IRC Chat has come alive tonight as two of the largest “gray hacker” groups, LulzSec and Anonymous are teaming up for one last voyage.  They have their eyes set on Paypal and seem to be trying multiple fronts of disruption against the world’s largest online payment handler.

In Lulzsec’s note, pasted below the break, they warn

We’ve set our LulzCannon’s sights on the smarmy pirates of PayPal and will take no prisoners. They have not kept their most important booty safe. We find this very troubling, as it is not even their booty! Take this as a warning from your friendly LulzBoat captain. Wise little LulzLizards should withdraw their funds from PayPal before we do.

The Anonymous and LulzSec community are up in arms over reports that were revealed today in Dallas about how the FBI obtained warrants against several of their members. The most recent warrants were served last week when 14 hackers identified as being part of the Anonymous group, and allegedly involved in Denial Of Service attacks on Paypal last December.

More after the break

On December 4, 2010 Paypal cut off donations to wiki-leaks prompting an outrage from the underground community who quickly resorted to DDos attacks against Paypal.

Anonymous Hackers, with the help of LulzSec have begun to seize Paypal accounts, transfer funds to a charity and then close the accounts of 210,334 Paypal users. The image above was tweeted out around 2:00am eastern time today, saying that the closures were underway.

  35. Friends, LulzLizards and enemies around the globe,
  36. The hateful fiends at PayPal have unleashed FBI sea dogs to hunt down some of the more beloved members of our battlefleet. That is why we have decided to raise anchor and leave harbour for one final journey on the seven proxseas. We’ve set our LulzCannon’s sights on the smarmy pirates of PayPal and will take no prisoners. They have not kept their most important booty safe. We find this very troubling, as it is not even their booty! Take this as a warning from your friendly LulzBoat captain. Wise little LulzLizards should withdraw their funds from PayPal before we do.
  37. We’re full of piss ‘n vinegar and we’re coming for you, PayPal. We gon’ find you. We gon’ find you. You can run and tell that.
  38. Let it be known the captain has set absolute bearing for victory! Prepare yourselves for raw, uninterrupted anarchy. Didn’t you notice all the dollar signs in our logo?
