Anonymous-LulzSec-Anti-Sec Arrests in New York
Here's the U.S. Attorney's press release on the arrest of six alleged members of Anonymous and LulzSec today.
Hector Xavier Monsegur, aka Sabu, was cooperating and led to the others. He pleaded guilty in August. The charged offenses include hacks of Fox Broadcasting Company, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and the Public Broadcasting Service (“PBS”) .
One person from Chicago, Jeremy Hammond, a/k/a “Anarchaos, was charged with the Stratfor hack.
Barrett Brown says on Twitter that his apartment was raided by the FBI this morning and they took laptops but he wasn't arrested. [More...]
Jake Davis, aka Topiary, one of those charged today, was arrested and charged last year in Great Britain. I'm not sure if Ryan Ackroyd, aka Kayla, is the same Kayla who was the subject of this investigation in GB last year. It would seem so, since the 4 alleged leaders of LulzSec were Sabu, Topiary, Kayla and TFlow, the investigation included HBGary, and Ackroyd aka Kayla was charged today with the HB Gary hack. TFlow was arrested in July, 2011.
