-VPN as Expose Your Ass
On Thursday, the FBI arrested two suspected hackers who allegedly participated in Anonymous and LulzSec attacks. One of them, Cody Kretsinger, faces 15 years in prison for allegedly helping break into the Sony Pictures website with an SQL injection and publishing user data. As we described on Thursday, the indictment against Kretsinger says he used what’s called a proxy server to hide his identity while carrying out the attack. But on Friday it emerged that the site he allegedly used to disguise his identity cooperated with police working to track him down. That’s got some in the online privacy community very nervous.
