British teenager arrested for ‘trying to hack into FBI computer networks’
Has another member of CWA been arrested? It sounds like it, but law enforcement hasn’t said so definitively.

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in Glasgow for allegedly trying to hack into FBI computer networks.
Police Scotland questioned the boy earlier this week watched on by FBI agents flown in from the US, according to the Daily Record.
He was arrested on Tuesday over the Computer Misuse Act, which covers hacking and unauthorised access to computer material.
