Hacking groups Anonymous and Lulz Security (Lulzsec) are joining forces to steal and leak classified government information, according to Australian news reports.

Announcing Operation Anti-Security (antisec) Lulzsec said it was teaming up with Anonymous and affiliated groups against the government and "whitehat security terrorists" across the world.

Lulzsec is encouraging any hacking group to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path.

"If you're aware of the corruption, expose it now, in the name of Anti-Security. Top priority is to steal and leak any classified government information, including e-mail spools and documentation. Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments," Lulzsec said.
