..It looks like Lulzsec in under control.
“ British police have arrested a teenager suspected to be a part of online hacker group Anonymous.
The Scotland Yard said that 18-year-old Jake Davis has been charged with a series of cyber crimes including hack attack on the website of the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) that took place a month ago.
Davis is also believed to be the spokesman for the hacker groups Lulz Security (Lulzsec) and Anonymous said police.
The arrest took place in a “pre-planned intelligence-led operation” on the Shetland Islands on Wednesday.
At present, Davis is with the cybercrime unit in London for questioning. He is the third Briton to have been arrested as part of the recent crackdown on online hacker groups in the US and Europe.
Last month, police had arrested another teenager Ryan Cleary in Essex. And last week, a 16-year-old boy was arrested from south London. So far, there have been at least sixteen arrests in the US and four in the Netherlands in a coordinated action against online hacker groups.
Meanwhile, reports say that Anonymous has targeted the network of US government contractor Mantech International Corp. The hacker group also posted some NATO-related correspondence online, according to Reuters.
Mantech has not commented on the matter so far.
LulzSec — infamous for its attacks on sonypictures.com, Nintendo and FBI associate websites — had recently claimed that it would be disbanding to avoid a crackdown on members and heightened scrutiny by authorities”
