A 20-year-old man has made a "comprehensive" confession that he was behind a data breach affecting hundreds of high-profile Germans, police say. Styling himself "G0d", he published private information about politicians, journalists, and celebrities on Twitter, under the username @_0rbit. Investigators said the man was still in education and living with his parents. The suspect said he acted alone and out of annoyance at statements made by the public figures he attacked.
