Six top computer hackers associated with groups such as Anonymous, LulzSec and AntiSec have been arrested and charged in New York in connection with a series of attacks on computers used by the entertainment industry, credit card companies, intelligence firms and even an Irish political party, U.S. officials announced Tuesday.

One of the six, Hector Xavier Monsegur – also known by his computer name of “Sabu” – pleaded guilty and was said by officials to be working with the government against his former colleagues.

Monsegur was described by officials as one of the founders of LulzSec, an offshoot of the antigovernment hacking group Anonymous. LulzSec -- a corruption of the Internet chat abbreviation "lol," or laugh out loud, and "security" -- planned and executed attacks around the world against targets the group saw as favoring established business and government institutions.

I wonder if he did it for the lulz?

I can just imagine what some of the Anonymous members are going through right now... probably something like this:
