The leader of LulzSec, an offshoot of Anonymous, has been caught. His internet handle is Sabu, but his real name is Hector Xavier Monsegur. In fact, for the past few months, he has been working with the FBI, the same group that he and his group hacked into. They are also responsible for hacking into the CIA, FOX, Sony and other organizations.
No word yet on how many users from Anonymous and LulzSec have been taken in by the FBI and other government agencies, but I am guessing the number may be astonishing. We may never know if they will release how many will be or have been captured.
The FBI were on the watch for Sabu’s movements for weeks, even months. It only took one slip up for them to locate him, and usually he is very meticulous about covering his tracks. The one time he got lazy the FBI jumped all over him. They also got a subpoena for his Facebook account, which led to many stolen credit cards numbers.
Hector did not go in easy once he was found by cops. It took a drastic measure of him losing his kids to finally give in. Before he became the leader of LulzSec, he worked for LimeWire. That was shut down, and he was out of a job.
We’ll have to see what the outcome of this will be and how it affects Anonymous and LulzSec.
