MADRID -- Spanish police say they have arrested three suspected computer hackers for allegedly belonging to a loose-knit international activist group that has attacked corporate and government websites around the world.
A National Police statement issued Friday identified the three detainees as leaders of the Spanish section of a group that calls itself "Anonymous."
Police said a computer server in one of their homes was used to coordinate and carry out the cyber attacks on targets including two major Spanish banks, the Italian energy company Enel and the governments of Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Iran, Chile, Colombia and New Zealand.
The statement said the only other countries to act against "Anonymous" so far are the United States and Britain.

So they can be lightly brushed by flailing, atrophied gamer limbs?

No, send them to Mexican drug lords, Colonel Gadaffi, or Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

Seriously, can't say I care if I'm being honest. As much as it was cyber-terrorism to gamers, Sony are a big company that can learn to deal with attacks, these guys are probably fucked for life now. It doesn't even sound like its definitely related to the PSN hack... was that the group led by these guys or the LulzSec / lulzboat dudes?

If and when the right people are found, they should be hired to help with overhauling Sony's network infrastructure security - not imprisoned.

Entre otros ataques, desde la vivienda se coordinaron arremetidas contra los sitios web de la tienda Playstation, BBVA, Bankia, Enel, y de los gobiernos de Egipto, Argelia, Libia, Irán, Chile, Colombia y Nueva Zelanda. En España, los detenidos lanzaron un ataque el pasado 18 de mayo contra la página de la Junta Electoral Central, y después también contra las webs de la policía autonómica catalana, los Mossos d'Esquadra, y del sindicato UGT.

Playstation Store, spanish banks, egypt, argelia, libia, irán, chile, colombia and new zealand goverments. And recently they send attacks to catalonian police website, UGT sindicate web and a web related to recently spain elections.

People love their gaming. Evidently a lot of people are bitter they were deprived of the online side of it for what was it, a month or two? Serious business.
