Australian police say they have arrested a "self-proclaimed leader" of the hacking group LulzSec.

The 24-year-old from New South Wales is accused of attacking and defacing a government website earlier this month, a police statement said.

Lulzsec has claimed responsibility for several high profile cyber-attacks, including against Sony Pictures and the CIA.

It emerged as a splinter-group of hacking collective Anonymous in 2011.

In the statement, the Australian Federal Police said that the arrested man was an IT professional who used his position in an IT company to access sensitive information from clients, including government agencies.

He has been charged with two counts of unauthorised modification of data to cause impairment, and one count of unauthorised access to restricted data. He faces a maximum of 12 years in jail.

"Those thinking of engaging in such activities should be warned that hacking, creating or propagating malicious viruses or participating in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are not harmless fun," Cyber Crimes Commander Glen McEwen said.

LulzSec gained international attention when they hacked the Sony website in 2011, taking down the company's PlayStation network for weeks and accessing millions of users' accounts.

If I were an elite hacker, I'd never get caught.

Number one reason: I'd never TELL YOU I was an elite hacker. Pfft.

Remember the golden rule boys and girls: Two may keep a secret, but only if one of them is dead.

By who ? anon don't care about lulzsec, and even if they did. the best anon can collectively pull together is a DDoS, occasionally they have a half decent hacker who puts on the Anon mantle just because it's convenient, but in reality has nothing to do with anon as such.

Luzsec, pretty much the same thing. mostly a bunch of script kiddies with a couple of somewhat decent hackers thrown in, but these are either arrested or gone under ground. as there really is no such thing as anonymous on the net. you can hide as best you can, but when doing targeted attacks the whole hidden untraceable hacker thing is mostly a myth. an any decent hacker doesn't want anything to do with either Anon or Lulz

That would explain why all the hackers have been caught and no more hacking is going on.

Pfft.
