One of LulzSec hacktivists, Ryan Cleary, has finally admitted the participation in online attacks against several companies, including 20th Century Fox, Nintendo, the NHS, News International, Sony, and even Arizona State Police.
The press reports say that Ryan Cleary, together with another hacker, Jake Davis, also admitted attacking the Westboro Baptist Church, HBGary, Bethesda, Eve Online, PBS, and Infragard. Moreover, Ryan confessed to other charges against him, like infiltrating USAF PCs at the Pentagon.
Nevertheless, Ryan Cleary is denying that he published confidential information to portals like LulzSec.com, The Pirate Bay, or Pastebin for everyone to see. Ryan also denies that he’s involved in 4 other charges under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 that allegedly happened between January 2009 and June 2011.
Despite the fact that Ryan Cleary has escaped an extradition to the United States, he is still fighting charges against him in the United Kingdom, including allegations under the Serious Crime Act 2007. Now time will tell whether the charges against the hacker hold up, and whether they will discourage another hacker group known as Anonymous from starting more DDoS attacks.
Meanwhile, a Forbes journalist covering the hacker group for over a year, presenting in Ryan’s hearing, is sure that the phenomena is far from over. He said that in spite of recent arrests, Anonymous as a phenomenon continues evolving and isn’t leaving any time soon. He added that the upside may be that with this arrest and an obvious risk to some of the hacktivists’ tactics, some of the group’s members may feel encouraged to embrace digital activism by legal means, but their number won’t be significant.

|This is our world now. The world of the electron and the|
switch; the beauty of the baud. We exist without nationality, skin
color, or religious bias. You wage wars, murder, cheat, lie to us
and try to make us believe its for our own good, yet were the
criminals. Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. I
am a hacker, and this is my manifesto...You
may stop me, but you cant stop us all...
