Following its Stratfor hack and fresh campaign against German neo-Nazis, Anonymous has left one more LulzXmas present for its supporters, issuing a new statement containing links to nearly all of its 2011 statements and data-dumps.

The links appeared in a statement posted on the Pastebin website under Anonymous' name on Tuesday.

"2011 WAS A GREAT YEAR ISN'T? BUT 2012 CAN BE BETTER WE ARE HERE TO SPREAD THE BEST LEAKS WE FOUND/GET," read the statement. Following up: "TO THE CORRPUT [sic] GOVERNMENTS & BANKS: RUN..BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE..WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE EXPECT US!!"

The data posted contained links to past Anonymous' data releases. These included the posts regarding its attacks on biotech firm Monsanto, the FBI and NATO. The data re-release was subsequently credited as a part of its LulzXmas campaign.

LulzXmas was first announced via a video statement posted on YouTube in December 2011.
In it, the collective posted an ominous message stating: "Epic year, isn't? And it was just the beginning. Please fasten your seat-belt for this LulzXmas."

The dark tone of Anonymous' final word in turn led to speculation that the collective was planning a Christmas series of hacks. Later in December Anonymous made good on its promise releasing the names, addresses and passwords of numerous Stratfor clients.
