Hacker group members arrested

By Susan Candiotti

Authorities on Tuesday conducted a series of wide-ranging arrests of top members of LulzSec, a computer hacker group that has claimed responsibility for a string of high-profile cyber attacks on government agencies and large companies.

The arrests included one person in Chicago, two from Ireland and two from Britain, according to a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation.

Authorities had been investigating the suspects, helped in part by a leader within the organization who had been secretly working with government officials

Details of the case are expected to be released soon in an indictment in New York federal court.

LulzSec is also referred to by its full name, Lulz Security.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this challenge plus it really does supply me a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, coming from just what I have seen, I simply just wish as other opinions stack on that folks stay on point and don't embark on a tirade associated with the news of the day. Still, thank you for this exceptional point and whilst I do not necessarily agree with it in totality, I value the standpoint.

    We have learned a great deal about recovering from narcotic addiction and have found several methods that work well. This is information drug treatment programs would not want out since it would cause them to lose a large number of patients. Would it be better to start with a blog or a website? We eventually hope to make this into an alternative business that would help people get of methadone clinics. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as there is a dire need for this information. Thank you..

    So they can find and arrest these guys but the Afrtican Scammers who steal peoples life savings are untouchable. Sounds to me like the government is willing to dish out revenge if it is targeted but if the people it is here to protect are victims... Oh Well.
