A British teenager suspected of being a mastermind behind notorious international computer hacking group LulzSec has been arrested in a joint police operation.




The arrest of the 19-year-old - named locally as Ryan Cleary - comes just days after the group claimed it brought down the US Central Intelligence Agency's website.

The alleged hack on CIA.gov occurred on the same day Lulz Security opened a telephone request line so its fans could suggest potential targets.

On Twitter, the group wrote: "Tango down - CIA.gov - for the lulz".

The FBI and Scotland Yard launched an investigation immediately and detectives from the force's e-crime unit swooped on the teen's home in Wickford, Essex, on Monday.

Also it seems he wasn't a mastermind - he simply owned one of the IRC's.

Media-spin since Lulzsec have already denied any of their members / leaders have been caught.

I did search but came up with nothing, so Mods if you feel this should be deleted than do so.

It's because the other thread has mispelled Lulzsec as Lulsec .. I pointed that out to him to have it corrected, but it does have more information in the responses overall since it's been posted for a while.

He's not their leader and apparently has little to do with the group according to their own twitter feed... it certainly hasn't stopped the DDoS attacks.

I'm not complaining, but it's quite useful to realize another thread is out there that has some additional information.
