LulzSec Suspect Taken Into Custody Posted by Sean @ 12:54 GMT

Rumors and news regarding hacker group LulzSec have been afloat on Twitter today.

The rumors circle around this Pastebin post which claims that LulzSec had acquired the UK's 2011 census data.


Note that anybody can post to pastebin.com.

Soon after, news came that Scotland Yard has arrested a 19-year-old in Essex.

Should be interesting to see what comes next…

Will the UK's census data be published to The Pirate Bay?
