One of the leaders of the well-known hacking collective LulzSec was recently caught breaking into a website which belongs to a local authority in northwestern New South Wales, Australia. 24-year-old Matthew Trevor Flannery, from the Central Coast, was charged with gaining illegal access to, and altering, restricted information on Narrabri Shire Council’s site.
The authority filed a lawsuit with Sydney’s Central Local Court, accusing Flannery of uploading a file which disrupted the website’s function. Matthew Flannery, also known under his online handle Aush0k, didn’t enter a plea to 3 separate charges of illegal access to and modification of computer data. Media reports reveal that if the charges are proven the guy could face dozen years of prison time. The hearing on the case was scheduled at August 6, with Aush0k’s bail continuing until that date.
Flannery’s main claim to fame is that he was one of the leaders of LulzSec, an offshoot of the Anonymous hacking group. The former claimed credit for a number of hacking attacks a couple years ago, including those against US CIA and the British Sun newspaper. It turned out that at the time of the Narrabri attack, Matthew Flannery was employed at Sydney as an overnight IT help desk assistant by Content Security in North Ryde. The guy was providing advice to an American client. In the meantime, the agency he broke into over 520km away, in the heart of the state’s cotton farming community. Actually, the only reason that town is famous was that it hosted the global album launch of French electro pop act Daft Punk this month.
