Meet SwagSec: they really like Lil B, and they hacked Amy Winehouse
Right when the maliciously-intentioned hacker group LulzSec calls it quits -- ostensibly to pursue more politically-motivated uses of their talents -- the world is introduced to a new group with some hazy inspiration and a whole lot of capital letters. They're called Swagger Security, and they really love Lil B.
In fact, they love Lil B so much that they timed their public unveiling to coincide with the release of B's new album, I'm Gay (I'm Happy). Around midnight last night, the group tweeted:
Which resulted in this:
The group is as anarchic as you'd expect, targeting the Britain-via-Tennessee singer Lauren Pritchard as well, for... having skinny arms?
It's a fully digital world, you don't need us to tell you. Remember War Games? When Matthew Broderick saved the world from nuclear war? Well that future is our present, and instead of youngsters playing tic-tac-toe with a green-and-black screen, our youngsters are doing exactly what we'd expect them to: fucking shit up.
Whatever their motivations, and however harshly they cop the steez of Lil B and Odd Future, we can now look forward to many more dubious LOLs courtesy of our new frenemies.
