CNET said:The U.S. Attorney says six hackers in the United States and abroad, affiliated with LulSec, Anonymous, and Antisec, have been arrested and charged with crimes.
Government agencies have arrested several members of hacker group LulzSec, which has claimed responsibility for attacks on Sony Pictures and Fox's "X-Factor" reality series, charging them with crimes allegedly affecting more than 1 million victims.
Five of the arrested individuals are described as "core" members of the hacker groups Anonymous and LulzSec, while a sixth individual, who operated under a separate group called Antisec, was also arrested, the U.S. Attorney's office said today in a statement.
The arrests have likely put hackers on alert, even as tensions rise over future attacks. While law enforcement officials, who didn't wish to be named, considered the arrests significant, they stopped short of calling the arrests a major blow to hackers working to illegally obtain data, shut down businesses, and steal money from individuals, companies, and government agencies. Officials, acknowledging current activity among such hackers, issued a warning.
