London (CNN) -- A teenager has been arrested near London in connection with the hacking of Sony, London's Metropolitan Police said Tuesday.
The 19-year-old is suspected of hacking into systems and mounting denial of service attacks against "a number of international businesses and intelligence agencies," police said. Naming suspects who have been arrested in Britain is illegal.
Sony's PlayStation Network went down on April 20 after what Sony said was a massive data breach. It had more than 70 million subscribers at the time.

Seems the glorious leader of LulzSec got arrested, it's all over now... wait... we're all still here! Which poor bastard did they take down?
@danielhewitt they knew he wasn't the ringleader but they probably have enough evidence on others now
First, kudos to that policy. It sort of takes "innocent until proven guilty" to a whole new level. Sometimes I think people are convicted in the "court of public opinion" when their name is released even before their trail. Maybe other countries should adopt a policy like that?
