So finally LulzSec leader, Anonymous Sabu gets Lulz from FBI. On Tuesday, FBI held the LulzSec Mastermind Hector Xavier Monsegur Aka Anonymous Sabu for various hacking charges. He was actually secretly arrested in June 2011 and from that time he was secretly working for FBI. He pleaded guilty Tuesday to various hacking-related charges.Documents (.pdf) in his case were unsealed in New York federal court on Tuesday.
His arrest has came as a SHOCK for the Hackers Community Worldwide. If proven guilty, Hector Xavier Monsegur, 28-year-old New Yorker will have to face theoretically 128 years in Jail.
Stephanie Christensen, an assistant U.S. attorney in Los Angeles, said “Sabu is actively co-operating with the government. He provided us very vital information which lead to arrest of some notorious hackers”.
Some of the hackers arrested on the information of SABU were:
Ryan Ackroyd, aka “Kayla” of Doncaster, United Kingdom.
Jake Davis, aka “Topiary” of London.
Darren Martyn, aka “pwnsauce” of Ireland.
Donncha O’Cearrbhail, aka “palladium” of Ireland.
and Jeremy Hammond, aka “Anarchaos”of Chicago.
Many Anons didn’t condemn his arrest as they considered his act as betrayal. One of the Anon said :
“It was either 124 years for Sabu, or 10 years each for the others,” said the former antisec anon. “I get why he did it, but he damaged the collective because of his own problems. And Anonymous is not your personal army. Nor is antisec.”
Though some of the Anonymous hackers claimed that they suspected Him as his Twitter feed stopped for a month and many Anons suspected it as well.
Monsegur Aka Anonymous Sabu, an unemployed father of 2, led the loosely organized group of hackers from his apartment in a public housing project in New York.
