A convicted computer hacker Hector Xavier Monsegur, popularly known as Sabu, has walked free after he helped the US authorities foil hundreds of cyber attacks.
In a report, the hackers pleaded guilty to all the cyber crime related charges and claimed to have not been motivated by politics like another hacking group Anonymous.
A self-proclaimed leader of the LulzSec international hacking group has been arrested in Australia, police said, charging him with attacking and defacing a government website.
LulzSec, an offshoot of the larger group Anonymous, has claimed responsibility for multiple cyber attacks, including against Sony Pictures, the CIA and other government organisations.
US authorities have reportedly arrested a second suspected member of hacking group LulzSec on charges of taking part in an extensive computer breach of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
One late-night visit by the FBI was all it took for the notorious hacker known as "Sabu" to switch sides and become a valued snitch.
US authorities today charged five members of the international hacking organisation known as Anonymous.
LulzSec shot to prominence in May with attacks on the US Public Broadcasting Service.
The man arrested is linked to an investigation into criminal activity of `hacktivist`.
Lulz Security hacker group has said that it has ended an Internet rampage.
The hacker group LulzSec tweeted "Tango down - cia" claiming the cyber attack on CIA`s website.
