Skyrim keeps LulzSec from releasing more info. on Bethesda

Tons of gamers are eagerly awaiting Bethesda Softworks’ next Elder Scrolls release, Skyrim — including the hackers over at LulzSec.

In fact, keeping Skyrim on track was the reason the hacker group gave for not releasing all of the information it got from an attack on the company’s servers two months ago.

The group released some information from the company’s servers, but held off on publishing the names and e-mail addresses associated with its Brink game out of respect for the company.

“We actually like this company and would like for them to speed up the production of Skyrim, so we'll give them one less thing to worry about,” the group wrote. “Please keep making awesome games, guys, and you should totally add an official LulzSec top hat to new releases.”

The group also pulled off a small breach of, and were not so kind, publishing some information taken from those servers. According to Reuters, the information was taken from a public part of a public server and the attack did not breach the Senate site’s firewall.
