The Met Police service in the UK has arrested an alleged member of the LulzSec hacking group according to a statement on their official website.
“Officers from the Metropolitan Police Central e-Crime Unit (PCeU) have arrested a 19-year-old man in a pre-planned intelligence-led operation.
The arrest follows an investigation into network intrusions and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against a number of international business and intelligence agencies by what is believed to be the same hacking group.”
The LulzSec group is suspected of masterminding high level cyber attacks on very high profile targets including Sony and the FBI. More recently, it’s been accused of hacking into the infrastructure of the UK Census bureau, a claim the group denies according to this tweet on their account.
It’s not clear if it’s a member of the group that has been arrested as the authorities claim given these words by LulzSec via their twitter account
Seems the glorious leader of LulzSec got arrested, it’s all over now… wait… we’re all still here! Which poor bastard did they take down?
