Legal The laughs are reportedly over for five top members of the hacker group LulzSec who were arrested on Tuesday and charged as part of a conspiracy case filed in New York federal court. reports that the arrests were part of a multinational sting across the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States on Tuesday morning, and LulzSec leader Hector Xavier Monsegur, who operated online under the alias “Sabu,” provided the Federal Bureau of Investigation with information leading to the arrests.

How long before the other cracktards out there take down the FBI's website again as a 'retaliatory strike'

They always try to push these types of arrests as being 'cutting off the head of the snake' -- when these are just a few whackjobs and screwups (That Jeremy guy for example -- 2nd offense too, previous offense he was turned in BY a 2600 club) that the real cracking community is as likely to turn in just for giving the scene a bad name...

... and that the goofy little up and coming script kiddies with their rah-rah fight the man attitude will come out of the woodwork to rally around.
