The self-proclaimed leader of international hacking group Lulz Security has been arrested by AFP – Australian Federal Police – on the New South Wales central coast. The AFP says the 24-year-old man was arrested in the Gosford suburb of Point Clare yesterday.
He has been charged with two counts of unauthorised modification of data to cause impairment and one count of unauthorised access to a restricted computer system. The AFP says he claims to be in charge of Lulz Security, or LulzSec, which has previously claimed responsibility for high-profile hacking attacks, includinga DDS attack that took the CIA website offline, and a hack which caused some serious headaches for Sony Corp.
AFP is alleging that the 24 year old IT worker hacked an Australian Government website site last month, the man has been bailed to appear in court later this year.

The group bragged over the Aussie hack, saying in a Twitter post, “Releasing 62,000 possible account combinations is the loot for creative minds to scour; think of it like digging a very unique mineshaft.” At the time LulzSec claimed more than 5,000 people had downloaded the leaked files.
Passwords for email accounts within eight Australian universities were leaked, along with the log-ins for two high schools in Queensland and Melbourne. The 24-year-old man is the first alleged member of the group to be charged by the AFP UPDATED :: Read the full article »»»»
