Rival hackers claim successful attack on LulzSec

Headline dominating hacking group LulzSec has seemingly become the victim of a hack attack itself.

Reports suggest that the LulzSec homepage went down earlier today after a number of rival hacking groups threatened to turn on the group.

At the time of writing, the LulzSec Twitter account can be found on Google but 'doesn't exist' once users click through to the social networking site.

A hacker going by the name of Oneiroi is claiming to have brought down the LulzSec homepage in an attack codenamed 'Operation Supernova'.

"I'd like to let the public know that phase one of OPERATION SUPERNOVA has been successful," he said on Twitter.

"Lulzsecurity.com is Tango down at this time."

The trouble for LulzSec doesn't stop there. New Scientist is reporting that another hacker by the name of 'TeaMp0ison' has vowed to reveal the true identities of LulzSec members:

"We're here to show the world that they're nothing but a bunch of script kiddies. We're going to let them do what they do. Then we're going to do what we do. We're going to hit them hard."

The slow turn of sections of the hacking community against LulzSec isn't new. Anti-hacking groups threatening to expose the hackers surfaced with the arrest of suspected LulzSec member Ryan Cleary on Tuesday.

One particular anti-hacking group calling itself 'Team Web Ninjas' has already posted what they say are the names, addresses, phone numbers and pictures of LulzSec.

They also claim to have full details of the LulzSec leader but are currently holding back from exposing him.
