A British teenager suspected of being a mastermind behind notorious international computer hacking group LulzSec has been arrested in a joint police operation. The arrest of the 19-year-old - named locally as Ryan Cleary - comes just days after the group claimed it brought down the US Central Intelligence Agency's website.
The alleged hack on CIA.gov occurred on the same day Lulz Security opened a telephone request line so its fans could suggest potential targets.
