FBI makes second Anonymous arrest in a month

For the second time this month, the FBI has arrested suspected members of the hacker group Anonymous.

IT Pro Portal reports the FBI raided homes in California, Arizona, Ohio, New Jersey, Minnesota and Montana.

Cody Kretsinger, a 23-year-old from Phoenix, has been charged with conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer.

Kretsinger is suspected of hacking in to the Sony Pictures website using an SQL injection attack.


According to IT Pro Portal, “Security experts believe it’s highly likely that all the hackers will eventually be caught because they got themselves too much attention and they failed to clean up behind them properly.”
