Editor’s Note: To those readers who are familiar with the term ‘controlled oposition’, a public figurehead of Anonymous and LulzSec has been revealed as a police informant who has apparently ratted out his other genuinely subversive hacker colleagues. One has to ask the question exactly how long were these groups infiltrated, or could they even been set-up to attract idealistic, highly skilled hackers – like bugs to a night-lite? Deception seems to fuel most modern paradigms which society is being presented in our 21st century media, increasing the importance of questioning everything.

Police have arrested five men, believed to be leading members of the so-called “hacktivist” groups Anonymous and LulzSec, amid reports their public figurehead turned informant and betrayed them to officers.
“Sabu”, the high profile hacker, identified as the leader of LulzSec and strongly linked to Anonymous, the groups allegedly responsible for attacks on Paypal and Rupert Murdoch’s newspapers – among others, is believed to have begun working for police after being arrested himself.
Reports on Fox News in America claim that his cooperation lead to the arrests of five members of the groups, two of them British. Ryan Ackroyd, aka high-ranking LulzSec member “Kayla” and Jake Davis, aka “Topiary,” who are both from London were among those arrested.
Darren Martyn, who uses the alias “pwnsauce” and Donncha O’Cearrbhail, who goes by the name “palladium”, both of Ireland were also arrested, along with Jeremy Hammond aka “Anarchaos,” from Chicago, in America.
