Lulzsec Hacker Ryan Cleary Charged in US For Hacking Fox, PBS Websites
Federal prosecutors have charged a 20-year-old Briton suspected of links to the hacking group Lulz Security with cracking into websites for a Fox reality TV show, a venerable news program and other sites. In an indictment filed Tuesday, Ryan Cleary is accused of conspiring with other hackers in LulzSec, an offshoot of the larger hacking group Anonymous, to break into multiple sites. Cleary is accused of conspiring to steal the confidential information of people who registered to get information on auditions for the Fox talent competition "The X-Factor." He also is accused of defacing the website for "The NewsHour," a nightly Public Broadcasting Service show.
An after-hours call to Cleary's legal representative in London wasn't returned. Calls to Fox and "The NewsHour" seeking comment and confirmation weren't immediately returned Wednesday. In the United Kingdom, Cleary is in custody following allegations that he hacked a law enforcement agency and various British music sites. If Cleary were to be extradited to the US and convicted, he would face a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison. FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said that they would "allow the prosecution to take its course" in the UK before deciding whether to apply for extradition.
