The fun never ends with the AnonyLulz, or Lulzymous..whatever–those hackers that don’t know when to quit and walk away and continue to kick the hornet’s nest.

Now, Anonymous has hacked into ManTech, a government security contractor that works with the FBI. Lest we question the veracity of the claims, the hackers have shared some of the spoils from the attack online.

A PCWorld article explains, “As promised, members of the Anonymous hacking movement have released hundreds of megabytes of documents that they say were stolen from government security contractor ManTech.”

The article also details some of the other hornet’s nests that have been kicked: “But the company is just the latest security contractor to be hit by Anonymous and its sister organization, LulzSec. Contractors HBGeary and Unveillance were also embarrassed by high-profile breaches this year, and LulzSec has targeted the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, the U.S. Senate and members of the FBI’s InfraGuard information-sharing program, among others.”
