On March 31, hacker Higinio Ochoa (or someone claiming to be him) posted a document on Pastebin describing his recent arrest by FBI agents. "On march 20th 2012 @ 10:30 am around 8 agents from the FBI stormed my apartment and put me under arrest," he wrote.
According to the statement, Ochoa’s interrogation by FBI Agent Scott Jenson focused on a February 2012 attack on the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). "It would seem to me neither the DPS administrator nor the FBI fully understand the ‘complexity’ of SQL injections," Ochoa noted.

“Few details of the case against Ochoa are publicly available,” Threatpost’s Paul Roberts reports. “Court documents indicate he first appeared in federal court for the Southern District of Texas on March 21. He was subsequently released on bail and forbidden to use a computer or smart phone.”
