On June 20, hacker groups LulzSec and Anonymous announced “Operation Anti-Security.”
Their “top priority is to steal and leak any classified government information, including email spools and documentation. Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments.” On June 21, a Chinese government website was taken down. On June 23, Arizona law enforcement fell prey to the digital pranksters' lovingly titled side-operation “Chinga La Migra.” The first phase of the hacking rampage continued to affect institutions far and wide until, on June 26, LuzSec was disbanded. Anonymous now claims that it is unilaterally leading the operation.
