Let me guess....
They'll chuck a few terrorism charges on him then lock him up for not disclosing his password?
UK police have arrested a teenager suspected of being a central figure in the infamous LulzSec hacking crew. The unnamed 19 year-old allegedly had been acting as a spokesman of both LulzSec and Anonymous, using the online handle Topiary. He was arrested at a residential address in the Shetland Islands earlier today and …
and which psychological disorder his mum will come up with this time? At the start of the dictionary we have:
Acute stress disorder
Adolescent antisocial behavior
Adult antisocial behavior
Adverse effects of medication-not otherwise specified
Age-related cognitive decline
Amphetamine (or amphetamine-like)-related disorder
Antisocial personality disorder
Avoidant personality disorder
....... or are we going to go with 'fear of Greek markets' again ?
I plot the downfall of governments through my computer, because I am a TECHNO-ANARCHIST. I have online conversations with my friends, where we communicate exclusively in leet speak because we are all TECHNO-ANARCHISTS. Governments and corporations tremble at our feet because of all the online horrors we may inflict upon them, using our TECHNO-ANARCHIST tools.
And if I am caught by the government, I shall get me an Ass Burgers diagnosis, sell out all my friends, then hide behind mummy's apron strings until the bad men have gone away, for I am a TECHNO-ANARCHIST.
"....... or are we going to go with 'fear of Greek markets' again ?"
There is a relatively recent development from Japan. A disorder in which offspring not only stay at home, but remain locked in their rooms. Parental contact is almost completely reduced to mealtimes, when food is shoved through the door. This kind of silly crap will fog up the new DSM unless good leadership is exercised.
Here are some other specimens that I dug up when looking for a link to give you on the above. First of all we have 'school refusal syndrome':
Then we have, shock horror, 'Paris Syndrome':
Paris, for obvious reasons.
As a parent I am appalled that a vulnerable individual should be dragged all that way just because a few organisations can't run their web sites properly.
Knowing something about web sites I'll bet they were running really insecure open systems not proper Windows web sites. Probably just trying to save money as well.
"As a parent I am appalled that a vulnerable individual should be dragged all that way just because a few organisations can't run their web sites properly."
Although not a parent I agree. In fact I think we should prosecute the site owners, the police, the internet police and society should also be in the dock, especially rubber neckers like us.
You can't commit a crime to fight a crime.
These guys forget that governments wage war on each other over the internet. Once they get out of the pond and into the ocean, they are shark bait.
And when he is in prison, I'm sure all the other prisoners will be nice to him because they are all innocent and oppressed and they will realize that he was 'helping them'.
"My last comment in this thread was deleted by a mod and the only reason I can see is I said something specific about what he's meant to have done in LulzSec "
Nah, the moderators would NEVER delete comments that refer back to verifiable evidence in public ownership. They just don't do stuff like that, any more than commentards voted down truths they dislike!
"Suspect was seen talking to Guardian reporter"
The Graun ran an article a few weeks back on 'Topiary' in which he claimed he was now taking a back seat for a while, making artwork and other promotional content for teh lulz. Apparently he hadn't been active in their hacking campaigns for some time citing fear of the risk involved. Someone who had become this concerned surely wouldn't have left any traces of their activities ??
I doubt they can take him down for being a spokesperson or making artwork.
Heck, even the IRA guys couldn't be arrested for their propaganda machine.
I might get some shirts printed up with "free topiary!" on, bound to get some looks XD
.. or simply a young troll, who enjoys posturing and drama.
I expect the plods will be rubbing their hands together, thinking they've caught some big fish. When, in fact it's more likely: he's he kind of person who trolls YouTube comments, saying 'THIS IS FAKE AND GAY!!!' and 'herp derp derp, dasu dasu'
What happened to all those News International emails they apparently have? I'm calling BS on that. It's a hoax/troll.
Is there a single person in Anonymous or LulzSec that has any 'hacking' expertise, or is it simply a bunch of clowns and trolls who are media attention-whores.
The HBGary op was most entertaining. Have a read: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/02/how-one-security-firm-tracked-anonymousand-paid-a-heavy-price.ars
The guys being rounded up by the police aren't even script kiddies. They seem to be idiots who downloaded LOIC, and that's all. They barely qualify for 'low hanging fruit' status. I guess these arrests will serve as a valuable lesson to all the other wannabes, who I suspect will pay more attention in TOR class next time.
