Hacker News: Anonymous + LulzSec Vs FBI: Global Arrests, Snitch Named

By Jon I in Tech

Today LulzSec hacks responsible for breach of security and/or DDOS attacks on Nintendo, Bethesda, Sony and other large corporations/organizations including 20th Century Fox were addressed in open court as the LulzSec Ringleader Hector Xavier Monsegur (known as Sabu) was revealed to have been working with law enforcement agencies such as the FBI in order to cut a deal for less jail time on about 10 different counts Sabu has pleaded guilty to according to breaking reports from major media outlets.

The hacker group has been connected to everything from the PlayStation Network hacks to Central Intelligence Agency breaches of Homeland Security and the hacking of Nintendo, Bethesda, EVE Online, and many others that will possibly go unnamed for time immemorial.

While in New York City Hector “Sabu” Monsegur was working against the people he had stood up for with such risque hashtags as “#F***FBIFridays” trending worldwide on Twitter (until being “moderated” A.K.A. censored), a branch of UK LulzSec members were also rounded up and pled guilty to all of their charges. The group will include names Ryan “Kayla” Ackroyd, Mustafa “Tflow” Al-Bassam, Jake “Topiary” Davis, and Ryan Cleary who will all be sentenced on May 14, 2013.

For the tech world this news comes at the cost of heroes  villains, geniuses, and perhaps hackers who will find themselves more involved with their destiny than ever before if given the chance to use their skills again. For more information on this topic be sure to give a read to some of the reports online today as the story is receiving updates around the globe hourly:
