LulzSec Hackers Sentenced to Jail

Three LulzSec group members were sentenced to 24-30 months in a British jail. The local media confirmed that Ryan Ackroyd, Ryan Cleary, Jake Davis and Mustafa Al-Bassam were charged with attacks on various entities, including the Serious Organized Crime Agency, Sony, Nintendo, 20th Century Fox and even governments and police forces. The attacks were carried out within a 50-day spree two years ago.

Of those four defendants, Jake Davis received 2 years in a young offender’s institution, Mustafa Al-Bassam – a 20-month sentence, suspended for 2 years and 300 hours unpaid work, while Ryan Ackroyd got a 30-month sentence. The fourth defender, Ryan Cleary, also pleaded guilty to possession of child abuse images after his second arrest last year. Therefore, he will be sentenced separately. On the Internet, Ryan Ackroyd was known under his nickname “Kayla”, and Jake Davis was the main spokesperson “Topiary”.

The international hacking collective LulzSec put a fake front page on The Sun’s site reading that News International CEO Rupert Murdoch had died. In addition, it leaked details of 500,000 paper’s readers.

So, Ackroyd was arrested in September 2011, after Jake was charged with illegal computer access and conspiracy to carry out a hacker attack in August that year. In the meanwhile, Al-Bassam wasn’t named until he pleaded guilty, because of his age. The leaders of the hacking collective were outted to the FBI by the group’s leader Sabu, who appeared to be informant for FBI last March. Finally, Ryan Cleary was arrested in June 2011 – although he wasn’t a member of LulzSec, Ryan owned a botnet of 100,000 PCs used by the collective. He received 32 months jail term.

According to Judge Deborah Taylor, the name LulzSec encapsulates their desires to cause embarrassment and disruption, at the same time keeping their own identities hidden. The court ruled that each of the accused played a role during a 7-month Internet campaign, using their technical abilities to cause catastrophic losses for amusement.

The only thing that the LulzSec hackers were probably relieved about was the fact that they weren’t arrested in the United States, because they could probably receive a lifetime prison term there, taking into account how much harm they made to American companies.
