    A Twitter post by Internet hacker, Lulz Security, who recently mocked the security system of Sony and FBI, stated that the group has received thousands of dollars as donation to continue its attacks. The LulzSec post reads, "Someone just sent over $7200 worth of BitCoins. Whoever you are...Thank you..."

    Over the past couple of months, the group has not shown any sign of easing its attacks on Sony. During April, Sony's PlayStation Network was hacked, exposing the accounts of over 100 million users. Although, at that time, the company had apologized profusely stating that the attack was a highly professional, criminal cyber attack aimed at stealing credit card numbers, they had to undergo close scrutiny. Many questioned the security policy of the company at that time, asking how such a breach happened.
