Lizard Squad Investigation Has Already Yielded An Arrest
1. I'm all for not giving these hacker twerps any attention. The only reason they do any of this is for attention. 2. Sadly, as I have to post news and it's New Year's Eve, there isn't much else to talk about.
You've probably already heard that the FBI is investigating Lizard Squad for the DDoS attacks on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live services over the holiday break. Well, it appears that investigation has already resulted in one arrest, as reported by The Daily Dot.
A search warrant was issued for 22-year-old Vinnie Omari of Twickenham, who said: "They took everything. Xbox One, phones, laptops, computer USBs, etc." A press release from The Thames Valley Police shows Omari was arrested on December 30 "on suspicion of fraud by false representation and Computer Misuse Act offenses." He's due in court in March 2015. Furthermore, another person associated with Lizard Squad, going by "Ryan," is under the FBI's microscope.
Lizard Squad's reaction:

That's a little different than the "yawn" reaction from before, isn't it? We've gone from pretending to be bored to defiant. What's next? Justification? Yeah, don't really care.
