A Traitor in their midst – Members of Anonymous/Lulzsec arrested

After months of attacking websites of the FBI, CIA, and Sony Pictures, federal agents arrested members of the hacker groups Lulzsec and Anonymous.  

Acting on information leaked by the group’s leader, Hector Xavier Mensegu, who went by the codename Sabu and had been working with the federal government for months.

Sabu, a 28-year old unemployed father of two, lived in a Lower East Side housing project, which served as the nerve center for a vast network of computer hackers numbering in the thousands and operating around the world. His primary role was to identify weak spots for the hackers to target and then spread that information.

After Sabu was unmasked by the FBI last June he was forced to leak information to the federal government or face jail time himself, after pleading guilty to charges on August 15.

“They caught him and he was secretly arrested and now works for the FBI,” a source close to Sabu told FoxNews.com. - International Business Times

LulzSec is allegedly responsible for billions of dollars in damage to governments, international banks and corporations through their coordinated cyber-attacks.

Did Anonymous Just Apologize to the CIA? Watch their newest communication here and decide for yourself (w/video)

Citizens of the World,

We are Anonymous.
We are people.   Just like you.

We are not robots.

We are human.

We are everyone.

That said. 

We have the capacity errors of judgment and mistakes that everyone does.

We are committed to improving the lives of everyone on this planet by whatever means deemed necessary because if we have to take action to right a wrong, it has gone on entirely too long. If that is the case, the people who should have handled it have ignored it. Those people have much higher budgets and significantly larger resource pools than we do. All we have is each other for good or bad. Some use the Anonymous name to try to “Profit!” off it, some use it for nefarious reasons, and we’ve even seen some use it to try to get laid. Regardless of the reason it is used, we unite under common goals for the common good.

There are projects we are working on that we shall not discus as to do so would influence them negatively and significantly. However, even those of us working for good sometimes make very bad rash ill thought-out decisions.

Such is the case of one anonymous individual. We will leave it at this.

To the CIA: We are sorry your website is down. It was not the intended purpose of #APH actions. However, such event created significant amount of attention to a situation that goes unnoticed far too often.

Six compromised servers containing child pornography are actively DDOSing your web server. We cannot stop this, we have no access to them, because the network link is entirely saturated and we cannot log back in. It will stop 41.6 days after the time it began. Your only choice is to act and have them taken offline, which should have already happened.

We are legion,
We do not forgive,
We do not forget…

You should have expected us…you damn kiddie diddlers!

The CIA refuses to disclose their involvement in the #OWS coordinated crackdowns

The Occupy Wall Street movement has experienced severe crackdowns nationwide. Many of the occupiers suspect the CIA has been aiding local law enforcement to try to thwart the movement. The Partnership for Civil Justice filed a Freedom of Information Act request to try to see if the CIA was involved in the OWS crackdowns, but the PCJF was denied the information. Is the CIA covering up evidence? Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, executive director of the PCJF expresses her opinion on the matter.
