    Suspected LulzSec “Mastermind” Arrested



    Channel 4 News is reporting that a 19-year-old has been arrested in connection with the hacking group LulzSec, a collective associated with hacks on Sony, Nintendo, the CIA and possibly acquiring records from the UK 2011 Census.
    The news agency posted the following tweet to its Twitter account:
    19-year-old suspected of being mastermind behind computer hacking group LulzSec arrested in Wickford, Essex. #c4news
    A Google search brings up information on a former Anonymous member named Ryan Cleary who resides in Wickford, Essex. He is reported to have been connected with a number of individuals who are reported to be involved with LulzSec.

    The Metropolitan Police released the following statement on the arrest:
    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 PCeU was assisted by officers from Essex Police and have been working in co-operation with the FBI.
    The teenager was arrested on suspicion of Computer Misuse Act, and Fraud Act offences and was taken to a central London police station, where he currently remains in custody for questioning.
    Searches at a residential address in Wickford, Essex, following the arrest last night have led to the examination of a significant amount of material. These forensic examinations remain ongoing.
    We are investigating further reports and will update you as soon as there are any developments.

    Sounds that way and he is in the place where they send cast offs from London lol

    The hacking group known as LulzSec pledged to continue their online rampage Tuesday, a day after U.K. police arrested a man allegedly affiliated with the group.
    Scotland Yard declined to name the 19 year old man, but LulzSec and local media identified him as Ryan Cleary. According to LulzSec, he merely operated an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server used by the group and was not a leader.
    "Ryan Cleary is not part of LulzSec; we house one of our many legitimate chatrooms on his IRC server, but that's it," the group said Tuesday in a Twitter message. "Clearly the UK police are so desperate to catch us that they've gone and arrested someone who is, at best, mildly associated with us. Lame."
    The group then posted details on two hackers it claimed had leaked chat logs belonging to LulzSec. It later invited followers to log into an IRC server to discuss its Operation Anti-Security, an effort to steal and leak classified.
