A British guy named Lauri Love has been arrested and charged with hacking into computer servers of the US Federal Reserve, and widely disclosing personal details of people using them.
Lauri Love was cuffed in Blighty 4 months ago and accused by the authorities of the United States and the United Kingdom of hacking into various American government computer systems, including the ones run by the military. The UK resident, in his late-20s, was working with other hackers a year ago to infiltrate the Federal Reserve's system.
The guy used an SQL injection to access names, email addresses and phone numbers of people who use the servers, and then published the stolen data to his website. Love boasted about his activity in a chatroom under nicknames "Peace" and "Smedley Butler”. He once said he planned to "drop another little federal reserve bomb", which meant he would disclose more confidential details.
US Attorney called Love a “sophisticated hacker”, and it is still unclear how much data was actually stolen. Lauri Love is charged with one count each of computer hacking and aggravated identity theft. If the Brit is extradited to the United States he could face 10 years in prison on the hacking charge and another couple years on the identity theft charge. The hacker has entered no plea, so it might become an internet meme on Facebook.

|bad move do not brag|
|Yeah that's pretty foolish. I wouldn't be surprised if the powers that be noticed his talent and intent and steered him toward boasting and hacking in a way that A) doesn't interfere or disrupt the status quo and B)helps justify subverting the public's information security in order to control the flow of information and limit the ability of REAL 'hackers'(Snowden) to actually expose criminal acts and encourage positive change.|

|Really? Hacked using the usual SQL injection attack?|
Hmmm that attack is done so often that if he really did get into the Fed's systems; then those sys admin need to be fired.
The other thing is you screw with the money as in this case; the money screws you..
