"British police announced Monday that they had arrested a 19-year-old hacker in Scotland's remote Shetland Islands that they believed to be Topiary. The LulzSec spokesman and Anonymous veteran would be the most high profile arrest yet in authorities' recently reinvigorated campaign to bring the group's global hacking spree to an end. But according to Jason Mick, a blogger for Daily Tech, the cybercrime unit at Scotland Yard nabbed the wrong guy. In fact, says Mick, LulzSec themselves duped police into arresting one of their enemies." (07/28/11)
