BBC News Online has reported the arrests of six people accused of being high-ranking members of the LulzSec hacking group. According to reports, the men had been turned in by the group’s leader, Hector Xavier Monsegur following his arrest and subsequent guilty plea to a dozen criminal charges in August 2011. It is understood Mr Monsegur then co-operated with the FBI, which led to the latest accusations. The LulzSec leader, who went by the online handle “Sabu”, admitted involvement in a number of cyberattacks made in 2011, including against Sony Pictures Entertainment and Fox Broadcasting Company.
