Illustration for article titled Dutch 4Chan Teen Arrested for WikiLeaks Revenge Attacks

A Dutch 16 year old (and LOIC gunner) has been detained in the Netherlands for his connection to the pro-WikiLeaks takedowns of MasterCard, Visa, and PayPal. The teen is currently undergoing interrogation by the Dutch High Tech Crime Team. Yikes.


In addition to his arrest, the kid's computers have been seized, and PC World reports he's already confessed to taking part in the highly effective DDoS assaults, aimed (so far) mainly at financial institutions that have blocked donations to WikiLeaks. We do not expect this to be the last teen to wind up cuffed for taking part in the 4Chan raids. [PC World]
