LulzSec hackers brought down from within as leader Sabu revealed as FBI mole
It looks like hacker group LulzSec finally had its Fredo moment. From Reuters:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has arrested three suspected members of the hacker group LulzSec and charges will be made public against two more, a law enforcement official told Reuters on Tuesday.
LulzSec, an underground group also known as Lulz Security, along with fellow hacking group Anonymous have taken credit for carrying out a number of high-profile hacking actions against companies and institutions including the CIA, Britain’s Serious Organized Crime Agency, Japan’s Sony Corp and Mexican government websites.
Last month, the activist group Anonymous published a recording of a confidential call between FBI agents and London detectives in which the law-enforcement agents discuss action they are taking against hacking.
Of the three hackers arrested, one was 23 and the other was 19. This is making us feel really good about our life choices.
