FBI Battles Back Against Hackers

The FBI appears to be fighting back against Lulz Sec, the hackers who recently attacked several corporate and government websites. On Tuesday, British police announced they had arrested a 19-year-old man for allegedly participating in cyberattacks "by a single hacking group." The FBI assisted in the investigation, and the Daily Mail says he could face extradition to the U.S. The FBI also confiscated several servers from a data center in Virginia, affecting popular services like InstaPaper and the Curbed blog network. It is unclear whether the raid was related to the Lulz Sec investigation, though a government official told the Times Tuesday that the FBI is actively investigating the group. Separately, the lead researcher at Imperva says he has identified the members of Lulz Sec.
