The famous Ryan Cleary, one of the hackers of the LulzSec collective, has been indicted by a Los Angeles District Court.
It’s uncertain if Cleary will be extradited to the United States or if he will remain in the United Kingdom where he is already facing hacking-related charges, The TechHerald reports
In the US indictment, the hacker is accused of breaching the systems of companies such as PBS, Fox and Sony Pictures, but also of participating in a distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack against hosting company DreamHost.
While he was initially released from prison, investigators found out that he broke his bail conditions when he sent an email
to the controversial Hector Xavier Monsegur, known on the hacking scene as Sabu.
For the charges brought against him in the US, Cleary could face a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison.
