Ryan Cleary, the hacker arrested in Essex last week with possible links to LulzSec, has been granted bail.
The conditions of bail mean that Cleary must observe a curfew between 9 am and 7 pm and wear an electronic tag.
The 19-year-old can't leave his house without one of his parents and is not allowed access to the internet or possess any devices capable of going online.
Since his arrest, Cleary has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome
At midnight on Saturday 26th June LulzSec, the notorious internet hacktivist group, has announced they are ending their spree of activity. After exactly fifty days of hacking attacks the group will cease to exist. An excerpt of their farewell statement is below:
Again, behind the mask, behind the insanity and mayhem, we truly believe in the AntiSec movement. We believe in it so strongly that we brought it back, much to the dismay of those looking for more anarchic lulz. We hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us. The support we’ve gathered for it in such a short space of time is truly overwhelming, and not to mention humbling. Please don’t stop. Together, united, we can stomp down our common oppressors and imbue ourselves with the power and freedom we deserve.
So with those last thoughts, it’s time to say bon voyage. Our planned 50 day cruise has expired, and we must now sail into the distance, leaving behind – we hope – inspiration, fear, denial, happiness, approval, disapproval, mockery, embarrassment, thoughtfulness, jealousy, hate, even love. If anything, we hope we had a microscopic impact on someone, somewhere. Anywhere.
Thank you for sailing with us. The breeze is fresh and the sun is setting, so now we head for the horizon.
Let it flow…
Lulz Security – our crew of six wishes you a happy 2011, and a shout-out to all of our battlefleet members and supporters across the globe
Now that thats over we can discuss what they did as a final act; an info dump containing 550,000 batches of personal info from Battlefield Heroes beta users and a further 50,000 random game forum users.
