    Default [News] Hackers caught

    PARIS -- Interpol said Tuesday that 25 suspected members of the loose-knit Anonymous hacker movement have been arrested in a sweep across Europe and South America.

    The international police agency said in a statement that the arrests in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Spain were carried out by national law enforcement officers working under the support of Interpol's Latin American Working Group of Experts on Information Technology Crime.

    The suspects, aged between 17 and 40, are suspected of planning coordinated cyberattacks against institutions including Colombia's defense ministry and presidential websites, Chile's Endesa electricity company and national library, as well as other targets.

    The arrests followed an ongoing investigation begun in mid-February which also led to the seizure of 250 items of IT equipment and mobile phones in searches of 40 premises in 15 cities, Interpol said.

    In Chile's capital, Subprefect Jamie Jara said at a news conference that authorities arrested five Chileans and a Colombian. Two of the Chileans are 17-year-old minors.

    The case was being handled by prosecutor Marcos Mercado, who specializes in computer crime. He said the suspects were charged with altering websites, including that of Chile's National Library, and engaging in denial-of-service attacks on websites of the electricity companies Endesa and Hidroaysen. The charges carry a penalty of 541 days to five years in prison, he said.

    Jara said the arrests resulted from a recently begun investigation and officials do not yet know if those arrested are tied to any "illicit group."

    "For now, we have not established that they have had any special communications among themselves," he said.

    Jara said authorities were continuing to investigate other avenues, but gave no details.

    Earlier on Tuesday, police in Spain announced the arrest of four suspected Anonymous hackers in connection with attacks on Spanish political party websites. These four were among the 25 announced by Interpol.

    A National Police statement said two servers used by the group in Bulgaria and the Czech Republic have been blocked.

    It said the four included the alleged manager of Anonymous' computer operations in Spain and Latin America, who was identified only by his initials and the aliases "Thunder" and "Pacotron."

    The four are suspected of defacing websites, carrying out denial-of-service attacks and publishing data on police assigned to the royal palace and the premier's office online.

    Interpol is headquartered in Lyon, France. The organization has no powers of arrest or investigation but it helps police forces around the world work together, facilitating intelligence sharing.

    Anonymous, whose genesis can be traced back to a popular U.S. image messaging board, has become increasingly politicized amid a global clampdown on music piracy and the international controversy over the secret-spilling site WikiLeaks, with which many of its supporters identify.

    Authorities in Europe, North America and elsewhere have made dozens of arrests, and Anonymous has increasingly attacked law enforcement, military and intelligence-linked targets in retaliation.

    One of Anonymous' most spectacular coups: Secretly recording a conference call between U.S. and British cyber investigators tasked with bringing the group to justice.

    Anonymous has no real membership structure. Hackers, activists, and supporters can claim allegiance to its freewheeling principles at their convenience, so it's unclear what impact the arrests will have.

    Some Internet chatter appeared to point to a revenge attack on Interpol's website, but the police organization's home page appeared to operating as normal late Tuesday.

    One Twitter account purportedly associated with Anonymous' Brazilian wing said the sweep would fail.

    "Interpol, you can't take Anonymous," the message read. "It's an idea."

    Whoa, that's cool.

    But it's really stupid that they got caught. Not to encourage hackers or anything, but this hacking team needed to disguise their IP address(es) better. Just saying. If they were smart enough to hack into so many websites and plan so many attacks towards different government technology, it doesn't make sense that they couldn't hide their IP address(es) as good as they could've.

    Maybe they had different plans of things they would do to government technology and websites, but did they ever actually perform the hacks, or even get started with them? I know the article said that they are suspected of defacing websites, but it never confirms it.

    Focusing on only one of the many threats the government has; it's stupid things like these that make us have the economy we have now.

    The government and press should be working on solving bigger problems whose suspicions are confirmed, imo. Or upping their security on the Internet and through technology. If a group consisting of a 17-year-old could supposedly hack into their systems, then they've certainly got bigger issues to handle.
    ...in a bucket.

    Just to point out anonymous is not a hacking group. Nor is it a fixed group. Anonymous started with an idea that people shared.
