LulzSec is a criminal hacking group described as an offshoot of Anonymous. Turns out that the FBI had caught their leader several months ago and, with his participation, has now rounded up the rest of his crew:
“They caught him and he was secretly arrested and now works for the FBI,” a source close to Sabu told FoxNews.com.
Monsegur pleaded guilty Aug. 15 to 12 hacking-related charges and information documenting his admissions is expected to be unsealed in Southern District Court on Tuesday.
As a result of Monsegur’s cooperation, which was confirmed by numerous senior-level officials, the remaining top-ranking members of LulzSec were arrested or hit with additional charges Tuesday morning. The five charged in the LulzSec conspiracy indictment expected to be unsealed were identified by sources as: Ryan Ackroyd, aka “Kayla” and Jake Davis, aka “Topiary,” both of London; Darren Martyn, aka “pwnsauce” and Donncha O’Cearrbhail, aka “palladium,” both of Ireland; and Jeremy Hammond aka “Anarchaos,” of Chicago.
Hammond was arrested on access device fraud and hacking charges and is believed to have been the main person behind the devastating December hack on U.S. security company Stratfor.
You better believe Julian Assange is plenty nervous this morning. If Jeremy Hammond implicates him in the Stratfor theft, he’s in deep trouble.
Also, a left wing “reporter” named Barrett Brown (who recently celebrated the death of Andrew Breitbart on Twitter) says his apartment was raided this am:
My apartment was raided this morning by the FBI. Feds also came to another residence where I actually was. Sabu is a traitor. #Anonymous
Looks like Sabu is a little smarter than Barrett Brown and doesn’t enjoy the idea of a long prison sentence.
[Hat tip to Nickarama for making my morning with this story]
Update: The NY Post has the indictment of Sabu. He is charged with hacking Fox, PBS, Sony and the US Senate. He’s also being charged with stealing identities for the purposes of stealing people’s money from their bank accounts. This guy is going away for a very long time I think.
