6 UK Teenagers Accused of Hacking and Released on Bail

Six British teenagers have been released on bail, accused of using Lizard Squad’s tool to hack websites and services. The teenagers are alleged of starting cyber attacks against such targets as national newspaper, school, gaming companies and online retailers.


The suspects are aged between 15 and 18 and were arrested by British police during an operation targeting alleged users of Lizard Stresser, which bombards websites and services with bogus traffic in DDoS attack, thus preventing real visitors from reaching the website. These tools have been used to cause both financial and reputational damage to many victims. The attacks can last many days, usually using infected computers or routers of innocent users.

It should be mentioned that this tool was used effectively by Lizard Squad to target Microsoft’s Xbox Live and Sony’s PlayStation Network in December 2014. The Lizard Stresser tool is positioned as a “DDoS for hire” instrument, which can be paid for to target whoever you want. The UK police confirmed that 6 people arrested are suspected of maliciously using this tool and paying for it using Bitcoin. However, the teenagers are not accused of being members of the famous hacking group.

The teenagers were arrested as part of an operation called Vivarium, involving officers from several police forces. All 6 male teenagers have been bailed, while a further two 18-year-olds were interviewed under caution. As part of operation Vivarium, the police are also visiting about 50 addresses linked to individuals registered on the Lizard Stresser website, in order to warn them that using such tools is illegal, can cause financial damage and severe restrictions on their freedom.

The UK police explained that one of their key priorities was to engage with those on the fringes of cyber criminality and help them understand the consequences of cyber crime. The police officers are trying to tell the suspects how they can channel their abilities into legitimate careers.

It should also be mentioned that the British police arrested one Lizard Squad member last December for their involvement in cyber attacks, and another member was arrested in May for pranking armed police. The problem is that the Lizard Squad’s hacking instruments remain available, despite its site being hacked revealing customers’ details.

Embolism avatarBot attacks are not new as Steve Gibson can still attest to having been DOS`ed for his slight to a 14 year old boy and today they can pay a few bucks and have a service or program do it for them,if they really do a good job it sounds as if they are being offered recruitment rather than punishment.I was developing on sourceforge during the Betfair attacks and made comment to shore up their defences with a java backend Delpi/Oracle since they lost 10 million in 4 days,I would love for a teenager to get caught for such and offered employment rather sent straight to jail do not collect 200 dollars.It has happened in the past i believe with the originator of the sasser virus who got a suspended sentence /probation and then a lucrative contract with Zone Alarm writing definitions amongst others who have broken into the Pentagon and suchlike.

majorDik007 avatarEmbolism - These "script Kiddies", and that is what they are have no skillz to do or work as you state. They are no where like Kevin Mitnick and others who have real skillz.. Again all these losers are azzholes looking for their fifteen minutes of fame and look where it got them.. They are NOT hurting the big Mega Corps.; they are hurting you and I by releasing personal information on us and screwing up our lives. All the Big Corps. do in losing millions is raise their prices and you and I again are the losers because we have to pay higher prices. A "real" hacker is a person who doesn't brag, or looks for a pat on the back; they breach a system very quietly, get in get out remove all their tracks and most of all KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT.

Embolism avatarshhh @5 I believe calling them script kiddies is why Gibson got his Denial of service,lol,but you are right in so much as bragging is a collective thing ,the war drivers of san francisco did`nt boast of their exploits to the world and kept it in house,the Feds busted some and then they bragged about it,as an engineer and developer I have had to improvise and do workarounds as with fedora 12 which on first release would not update through its management package and needed to be typed at simples and most script kiddies are just doing workarounds and finding vulnerabilities in security to access systems nowadays it is relatively easy to test for penetration and access using various programs and Backtrack www.backtrack-linux.org/ and you do not have to be very advanced in learning how to do it.
