Top LulzSec Members Arrested after Leader Cooperated with FBI

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:36 pm



Top members of LulzSec, an Anonymous splinter group thought to be responsible for the Stratfor hack in December, were arrested this morning when it was revealed that their leader, anonymouSabu, had been cooperating with the FBI since August.

Barrett Brown claimed his residence had been raided by the FBI, but told the New York Times that he had had advance word of the raid and had hidden his laptops.

More later when I get time . . .

  1. Great. Now maybe they can put them away for a long time like they did that creep, Bradley Manning. Oh, wait…

  2. “The offshoot of the loose network of hackers, Anonymous, believed to have caused billions of dollars in damage to governments, international banks and corporations”

    If that’s really true, and I was dictator of America, I’d execute them.

    And, I’m not kidding around.

    Hackers, of that variety, are about the lowest form of life on earth, and we’d be doing ourselves a favor, if we just terminated their existence when we caught them.

    And, it doesn’t surprise me a bit that one of them ratted out his friends to try and save his own ass.

    That’s what rats do. Act like rats.

  3. I was just reading about this on Twitter. Very interesting. Testeux had been hinting at this but I only understand about 35 percent of what those peeps say! lol

    I have been getting the feeling that this is going to be a wild month.

  4. Barrett Brown is a self-aggrandizing douchenozzle.

  5. And when one of your anonymous friends is an FBI informant, they all are.

  6. A hacker who turns on his friends when his own neck is on the line? Imagine that.

  7. There is a certain name that keeps coming up when you read more about this. I really hope it’s true.

  8. Who, noodles?

  9. Some people have been hinting (for a while now) that a certain suspected operative we all know is maybe going down soon. #twittergate #weinergate

  10. GennetteC?

    JD (8921d4)

  11. lol, I was trying not to say their name. I don’t think GenC is associated with LulzSec. I don’t think she was involved in twittergate either.

    Noodles (3681c4)

  12. Damn. I will laugh when Barrette Brown gets cuffed. And when Kimberlin, Rowhowser, ronbrin and the rest of them get theirs.

    JD (8921d4)

  13. Not necessarily in that order.

  14. How stupid do you have to be to take on the Zetas,

  15. I think there is a reason Liberty Chick, Patterico, dmatthewstewart, etc. are all interested in this story (beyond the normal news worthy reasons).

  16. “Mr. Monsegur’s base of operations seems to have been his late grandmother’s sixth-floor apartment in a public-housing project on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.”

    Yet another triumph for the fabulous welfare state.

    Your tax dollar at work.

  17. Noodles,
    Dan Wolfe? I’d still kinda like to know who that trouble maker was.

    Ghost (6f9de7)

  18. Idk if it’s true or not but the peeps that called this Sabu guy have been talking about Neal a lot. That he is going down also.

    I kind of thought that everyone would get what I was saying. Maybe I follow this thing too closely. =/

    Noodles (3681c4)

  19. Sweet fancy Moses, that would be freakin awesome! If only just to stick it to that lying kossack of shlt.

  20. Sarah Palin voted for Newt. I probably will too, even though it’s just a statement.

  21. argh, wrong thread.

  22. I don’t care who you are, you don’t threaten the US
    Govt,

    narciso (87e966)

  23. I dunno, Narciso. Next thing you know, Eric Holder will have mailed them all NSA hash cracking iPads to track them… but sans the tracking part.

    Dustin (401f3a)

  24. Well, unless you’re just one man, trying to escape a violent past by living off the land and avoiding everybody, until a crooked sheriff starts hunting you down for some plot point that I can’t remember, because I haven’t seen First Blood for a while… Then, free range, go blow shlt up and shoot arrows through people’s eyes and whatnot. Rambo, mofu**a!

    Sorry. I just had to say that. Won’t ever happen again.

    Ghost (6f9de7)

  25. well you get a glimpse of the bottom dwelling slug he is here;

  27. Too bad no one ratted out Ron Paul. I think he’s their leader.

    Kevin M (bf8ad7)

  28. “Too bad no one ratted out Ron Paul. I think he’s their leader.”

    Kevin M – Absolutely. How else does he keep track of the Jooooos and their international banking conspiracy?

  30. Thanks, noodles.

    Dustin (401f3a)

  31. Yeah, pretty exciting news. =)

    Noodles (3681c4)

  32. @ Dustin #30

    This might be all some fake ploy. Someone alludes to that on Mike’s site.

    Noodles (3681c4)

  33. Interesting that you said that, Noodles. That’s certainly a great way to con a bunch of folks into being your personal army.

    Dustin (401f3a)

  34. Idk what that text means Alicia cites. Like if it’s a guess or she picked it up somewhere? Dunno.

    Yeah, maybe a personal army. Maybe a “The Feds got me, you can all go away now” kind of think.
