Hacker Ryan Cleary Back in Jail


British hacker Ryan Cleary is back in prison after breaking the conditions of his bail.

"According to reports, Cleary -- who has been charged with launching distributed denial-of-service attacks against the likes of the Serious Organised Crime Agency, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) and the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) -- breached his bail conditions by accessing the internet over Christmas," writes Sophos' Graham Cluley.

"And who is he said to have contacted on the net? None other than LulzSec leader Hector Xavier Monsegur (alias 'Sabu')," Cluley writes. "Ironically, Sabu was recently revealed to have betrayed LulzSec members, and associated Anonymous hacktivists, by secretly working for the FBI for many months."
