Sony Hackers Plead Guilty in UK Court
A post on Eurogamer today reports that two teenagers who were arrested for allegedly participating in DDoS attacks against video game companies like Sony, Nintendo, Bethesda, and more, have pleaded guilty to the charges against them in Southwark Crown Court in the UK.
The two accused, 19-year-old Ryan Cleary, and 18-year-old Jake Davis, “pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy to do an unauthorized act or acts with intent to impair, or with recklessness as to impairing, the operation of a computer or computers.”
In addition, the two have admitted to being a part of Lulzsec, the group that claimed responsibility for the massive takedown of Sony back in 2011. The article notes that there are two other men who’ve been arrested and accused of participating in the attacks, but who deny the allegations.
Cleary was arrested in June of 2011, while Davis was apprehended two months later in August. Also, I made this image for the article, which is still one of my favorites:
Why is Master Chief arresting someone for hacking Sony networks? Because Master Chief doesn’t care about platform…HE ONLY CARES ABOUT JUSTICE.
