A 19-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of hacking attacks on Sony and the CIA website, British police said Tuesday. The Metropolitan Police said the arrest took place following a joint operation by its Internet crimes unit and the FBI. Police would not say if the suspect was tied to the Lulz Security hacking collective, which has claimed responsibility for recent high-profile attacks, but did confirm that a computer seized in the operation will be examined for Sony data.

    The FBI appears to be fighting back against Lulz Sec, the hackers who recently attacked several corporate and government websites.

Separately, the lead researcher at Imperva says he has  identified the members of Lulz Sec.
