The group frequently posts updates on its Twitter, @LulzSec, providing updates and even taunting Sony. In late May, the hacker collective tweeted, "Hey @Sony, you know we're making off with a bunch of your internal stuff right now and you haven't even noticed? Slow and steady, guys."

Earlier this week, LulzSec apparently went after Sony BMG and Sony Pictures then broke into Nintendo USA's website.
