captured last June, the same month the group disbanded. Since then he has been working as a "cooperating witness."
The other five hacker members charged in the LulzSec conspiracy indictment were: Darren Martyn, aka “pwnsauce” and Donncha O’Cearrbhail, aka “palladium,” both of Ireland; Ryan Ackroyd, aka “Kayla” and Jake Davis, aka “Topiary,” both of London; and Jeremy Hammond aka “Anarchaos,” of Chicago.
Topiary was actually identified and arrested in July of last year. Hammond was described as a member of fellow hacker group Anonymous, rather than LulzSec, and is believed to have been the main person behind the December hack on think tank Stratfor, which recently saw a number of emails from the hack leaked by Wikileaks after Anonymous provided the whistleblower site with the data.
These are the first major LulzSec-related arrests since September of last year. Then, Cody Andrew Kretsinger, 23, of Phoenix, Arizona was arrested and charged with hacking into Sony Pictures Entertainment's computer systems.
