The Alleged Leader Of Hacking Group


us.news-republic.com

An unnamed 24-year-old in New South Wales, Australia, was arrested for defacing a government website, the BBC reports.
This individual is the "self-proclaimed leader" of hacking group LulzSec, a splinter group of Anonymous, the BBC says.
The group has waged several high profile attacks against major organizations like Sony and the CIA since forming in 2011.
The alleged hacker is charged with two counts of "unauthorized modification of data to cause impairment" and one count of "unauthorized access to restricted data," which has him looking at up to 12 years in prison.

Wow! This is a HUGE arrest, I am anxious to see the guy when they release more on the arrest. Just when I thought that anonymous and these other "hacker" groups were just a figment of the gov. imagination and were just trying to use them as cover for internet censorship. We will see what comes out of this. Now, if they could just get their hands on anonymous, that would be huge. I wonder if they have not messed with anon is because of the reprisal they would likely recieve?

I don't knwo if he means what I'm gonna say but they don't have a LEADER, it's a group of like minded hackers who work together, probably started by the FBI or CIA fron the beginning, that way kids do the hardwork and get in trouble and the CIA and FBI get whatever it is the want done removal of internet rights etc.

Well.....private information is private for a reason. Would you want every one going through YOUR personal information?

True, but he may very well be the founder of the operation, someone had to have started it right?

This is terrible!
Leave the hackers alone all they are trying to do is protect you from your own government that is trying to kill you!
Wake up man!!
Know your enemy.

According to unsealed court documents released yesterday and obtained by the Wall Street Journal, Monsegur was "proactively" cooperating with theFBI, helping the government agency build its cases against alleged hackers. Monsegur's work with the government became an around-the-clock job, as he stayed up all night at times coaxing alleged hackers into conversations that were recorded and eventually used against them by the FBI.


Sabu, who was claiming to be a leader of anonymous was actually an FBI snitch. He set up a bunch of wannabe hackers for FBI to nab them.

Perhaps this guy will end up being an informant as well.

I think the important part is the threat that all these stories emphasize, as does the OP's story
"We'll lock you away forever if you dare to threaten us"

The rest is irrelevant, they just want you all to read the threat.

I seen this on RT yesterday. I don't think it is the actual "leader". He is a low level tech...


Since the initial Australian police report, several of the country's publications have outed the suspect as Matthew Flannery, a support technician at IT security provider Content Security, contracted by the larger firm Tenable Network Security.

Flannery, who was known online as Aush0k, was evidently arrested at his place of work by the Australian Federal Police, though his employer seemed to downplay his level of access to any customer data by describing him as a “low-level support tech.”

That's not exactly what happened. Sabu was caught by the FBI and he made a deal, they all have a 'tell' to let the others know if they've been compromised.

AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE. OI! OI! OI!

Who'd a thunk it, eh?

I should probably say something meaningful so this post doesn't get deleted.

LulzSec makes me laugh. I'm sure this guy isn't the leader. According to LulzSec they don't have fascist inventions like "leaders". Are LulzSec an offshoot of Anonymous? Those guys were the ones that watched V for Vendetta one too many times, right? Actually I really like some of their actions. The Westboro Baptist Church action to stop them picketing the funerals of Newtown kids was especially good.

I saw this on the news last night.
I think the law will make an example out of him.
He's going to go to prison for a long time.

Yeah, either way he still became a snitch to save his own hide.
