The five males are being held after a series of arrests at residential addresses in the West Midlands, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, Surrey and London this morning.
The men were arrested in relation to "recent and ongoing" attacks by an online group that calls itself "Anonymous".
Targets included the websites of PayPal, Mastercard and Amazon.
Anonymous used a technique called "distributed denial of service" (DDoS) attacks in a bid to take the sites offline.
