Claiming the name Anonymous, those responsible for a weekend data breach at the European Space Agency (ESA) said the act was one of pure amusement (lulz) and not part of a larger scheme or protest.
The compromised records were discovered on the ESA subdomains targeted by Anonymous, including due.esrin.esa.int, exploration.esa.int, and sci.esa.int. Once the records were copied, they were posted to a public document server and shared among various people online.
The post exposing the breached data says the ESA attack was done for amusement only (lulz), and promoted the cyberguerrilla.org IRC server and the OpNewBlood / FreeAnons channels.
