The Metropolitan Police has followed up the large-scale swoop on suspected members of the infamous Anonymous hacktivist collective by arresting a 16 year-old male suspected of involvement in LulzSec.
V3 reported yesterday how the FBI had arrested 16 people suspected of taking part in the group's hacking activities after a series of raids in locations ranging from Massachusetts to the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Met's Police Central eCrime Unit is now reporting that it nabbed a 16 year-old at an address in south London and took his computer away for analysis.
The youth, whose handle is 'T-Flow', is connected to the LulzSec hacks, according to Sophos senior technology consultant Graham Cluley.
Interestingly the Met's press release refers to the PCeU as the Police Computer e-Crime Unit, not the correct title of the Police Central e-Crime Unit.
Clearly hi-tech crime prevention still doesn't have a high enough profile in the force.
