Tonight join Vince as he covers the news of the day…
Four members of LulzSec, an offshoot of Anonymous, were sentenced today in London to between two and two-and-a-half years in prison for their roles in a series of high-profile hacks against Sony and other targets in 2011.
Ryan Cleary, also known as “Viral” online, Jake “Topiary” Davis, and Ryan “Kayla” Ackroyd, all received prison sentences, while Mustafa al-Bassam, aka T-Flow, was given a 20-month suspended sentence due to the fact that he was only 16 when he committed the crimes. Al-Bassam, now 18, was also sentenced to 300 hours of community service.
Cleary was not a primary member of the group, but he got the largest sentence, 32 months in prison. He was charged with supplying the hacking tools to conduct the attacks and for hacking U.S. Air Force computers. He also pleaded guilty to possession of indecent images of children and babies; his sentencing for this charge is scheduled for a separate hearing.
Ackroyd was described as the ringleader responsible for choosing targets and directing the others. He pleaded guilty to stealing data from Sony and also for interfering with the Sun newspaper site by redirecting users to a fabricated story indicating that Rupert Murdoch, CEO of the News Corporation, had committed suicide. He was sentenced to 30 months.
Davis, one of the most prominent members of the group due to his role as spokesman, was sentenced to two years, which he will serve in a youth detention center.

A report on the latest round of protests at the Civic Center BART station in San Francisco yesterday. MEGAFORCE was in the house and full effect. Only two arrests were made and this week the peaceful protesters were not blamed for any service interruptions. Also, Linton Johnson still has a job, but apparently isn't doing it because of ongoing "family emergency." Meanwhile, Jake Davis (aka LulzSec spokesman "Topiary") is set to face Crown Court charges in London today. C
British police have confirmed U.K. media reports that Jake Davis, 18, of Yell, Shetland Islands, known to the Internet as Topiary, has been formally charged with five offences, including the DDoS attack against the Serious and Organized Crime Agency (SOCA) earlier this summer. Davis was released on bail on Monday after being charged with five offenses relating to computer attacks and break-ins by the LulzSec and Anonymous hacking groups earlier this year.
