A group apparently taking a page out of the LulzSec playbook claims to have broken into the network of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and stolen sensitive information it plans to post online.

The Crazies–which like Anonymous, AntiSec, and the now-defunct LulzSec hacking groups–said it is politically motivated to act against the federal government. It posted online SSL certificate revocation lists (CRLs) it claims are in its possession as a result of an intrusion into DISA’s network.

On the document-sharing site Pastebin, the group also voiced its support for those hacktivist groups in notes about its activity, which it said was inspired by U.S. military engagement in the Middle East.

“We’re fully supporting you and supporting any others who wants to get those carnivores that lives on sucking the civilians’ blood as far as we saw that happening in Libya … and before that in Iraq and Afghanistan and many others,” according to the notes. “We’ll expose them because we had enough of their thoughts and calls for fake freedom.”

Crazies didn’t go into detail about what’s contained in the files it claims to have lifted from DISA’s network, but said it will post them online in less than a week.
