London , Sat, 03 Sep 2011 ANI

London, Sept 3 (ANI): Four men linked to hacker groups Anonymous and Lulz Security have reportedly been arrested in the UK.


Police detained 20-year-old Christopher Weatherhead from Northampton and 26-year-old Ashley Rhodes from Kennington, near London.


Scotland Yard's e-Crime unit is questioning a 24-year-old man from Doncaster, and a 20-year-old from Wiltshire for conspiring to commit offences under the Computer Misuse Act 1990, the BBC reports.


Their arrests are part of a wider operation involving UK law enforcement and the FBI.


Amazon, PayPal, the CIA, US Senate and the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency have all suffered intrusions or denial of service attacks by these two hacker groups.


Anonymous had publicly declared its intent to target both PayPal and Amazon for, what the group perceived as, their complicity in isolating whistle blowing website Wikileaks, the report said. (ANI)
