Alleged Sony Entertainment Computer Hacker Arrested by FBI!

An alleged member of the LulzSec hacking group was arrested by the FBI on charges he broke into Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc.’s computer systems in May and June.

LulzSec, following the attack on Sony Pictures’ systems, posted customer information online from what appeared to be sweepstakes and loyalty-program databases, including one tied to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.

Cody Kretsinger, of Phoenix, was arrested today, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in an e-mailed statement. Kretsinger, 23, belonged to Lulz Security, or LulzSec, a group of “elite computer hackers” that undertook cyber attacks on the computer systems of businesses and government entities in the U.S. and around the world, according to an indictment unsealed today in federal court in Los Angeles.
