Controversial Hacker & Co-founder of LulzSec
“Anonymous is among the world's biggest online vigilante groups. Its members break into the computer systems of companies and governments. Hector Monsegur was one of the group's most effective operatives. He was instrumental in steering cyber-attacks on targets including Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Sony and the U.S. Senate. In 2011 he infiltrated the Tunisian government's Web site in support of protesters at the height of the Arab Spring. Later that year, he was apprehended after hacking into an FBI affiliate. He became an informant, allowing the government to log his actions as he engaged in hacking activities with his former piers. The FBI says he has helped them prevent more than 300 cyber-attacks in systems controlled by the military and NASA”. Charlie Rose Read More >
