Anonymous: FBI raids alleged hackers
FBI agents raided the New York homes of six alleged Anonymous hackers yesterday as part of a nationwide sweep.
FBI spokesman Peter Donald said it was part of an ongoing investigation into the infamous international hacking group.
At least 10 agents were at the Long Island home of Giordani Jordan, Fox News reported, supposedly a member of Anonymous.
The search warrant was for computers and computer accessories, and Fox News reported that agents took at least one laptop away after searching for nearly two hours.
No one was arrested in New York, but 35 raids nationwide netted 14 people in California, Florida and New Mexico. Many of those handcuffed were in their 20s and arrested for conspiracy and intentional damage to a protected computer. Anonymous has taken credit for hacking into websites like MasterCard, and a group associated with it, LulzSec, has been connected with the hacking of the CIA.
