So just in case you were wondering if Latino computer nerds exist… they do.
Fox News is reporting a leader of an Anonymous offshoot, that’s believed to have caused billions of dollars in damage to governments, international banks and corporations, was allegedly led by Hector Xavier Monsegur.
The offshoot of the loose network of hackers, Anonymous, believed to have caused billions of dollars in damage to governments, international banks and corporations, was allegedly led by a shadowy figure FoxNews.com has identified as Hector Xavier Monsegur. Working under the Internet alias “Sabu,” the unemployed, 28-year-old father of two allegedly commanded a loosely organized, international team of perhaps thousands of hackers from his nerve center in a public housing project on New York’s Lower East Side. After the FBI unmasked Monsegur last June, he became a cooperating witness, sources told FoxNews.com.
“They caught him and he was secretly arrested and now works for the FBI,” a source close to Sabu told FoxNews.com.
Monsegur pleaded guilty Aug. 15 to 12 hacking-related charges and information documenting his admissions was unsealed in Southern District Court on Tuesday.
Last week, Interpol (The International Criminal Police Organization) carried out an investigation against Anonymous that led to the arrests of 25 suspected members, ranging in age from 17-to-40-years-old in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Spain.
