    The hacker group Lulz Security has opened a telephone request line so its fans can suggest potential targets. It claims to have launched denial of service attacks on several websites as a result, although it did not detail which ones. The unspecified hacks formed part of a wave of security breaches that the group called Titanic Takeover Tuesday.

    Callers to the US number are met with a recorded message, in a heavy French accent, by an individual calling themself Pierre Dubois.

    While the 614 area code appears to relate to the state of Ohio, it is unlikely that this is its real location.

    Lulz Security said it had used distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS) against eight sites suggested by callers.
