UK Lulzsec hackers get jail time

Four United Kingdom Lulzsec hackers have been given jail sentences for their roles in a string of 2011 high-profile cyber attacks.

The group targeted major companies like Sony, Nintendo, Epic Games, Mojang, and Bethesda, among others.

The four men jailed are Ryan Cleary (32 months), Jake Davis (24 months), Mustafa al-Bassam (20 months), and Ryan Ackroyd (30 months). They plead guilty last month.

“This case should serve as a warning to other cybercriminals that they are not invincible,” prosecution lawyer Andrew Hadik told the BBC.
