Sabu Gets 6-Month Sentencing Delay

Sabu Gets 6-Month Sentencing Delay for Continuing to Help Feds

quote:
Sabu, the hacker who turned informant on the rampaging Anonymous offshoots AntiSec and LulzSec
is getting a six-month reprieve from being sentenced on 12 counts of violating federal law, due to his continued cooperation with the feds, prosecutors told a court Tuesday.

Hector Xavier Monsegur, a 28-year-old New Yorker who used the online name “Sabu,” has been working undercover for the feds since the FBI arrested him without fanfare last June.

Monsegur provided agents with information that helped them arrest several suspected members of LulzSec and Antisec, including two men from Great Britain, two from Ireland and an American in Chicago.

Second Alleged LulzSec Sony Hacker Arrested

quote:
An alleged member of the LulzSec hacktivist group has been arrested in the US in an investigation into last year’s hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s database.

Sony was pummelled by cyber attacks last year, the most significant one targeting its PlayStation Network (PSN) in April, which saw data of 77 million users compromised. In June, it emerged SonyPictures.com was hacked. LulzSec claimed to be behind the attack, saying it had published several lists with extracts from over a million compromised user accounts.

Raynaldo Rivera, a 20-year-old from Arizona, was taken into custody in Phoenix Arizona yesterday, the FBI said, charging him with conspiracy and unauthorised impairment of a protected computer. He could be jailed for up to 15 years, according to various reports.
