Alleged Hong Kong Anonymous hacker arrested over Facebook Threat

Minggu, 05 Agustus 2012

A man believed to be a member of the international hacker group Anonymous was reportedly arrested by Hong Kong police after he claimed on Facebook that he would hack several government websites.

Police said the man, who was later released on bail, was held on suspicion of "access to a computer with criminal or dishonest intent" after he allegedly threatened to hack seven government websites between June and August this year.

“The Internet is not a virtual world of lawlessness,” a police spokesman said, adding that the man was required to report back to the police in October.

He would face up to five years in jail, if found guilty.

The man is a member of the global hacker group Anonymous, the South China Morning Post said. The group is said to have 20 members in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory, which guarantees civil liberties not seen on the mainland, including freedom of speech.

The police spokesman declined to confirm his link to Anonymous. The last posting on the "Anonymous HK" Facebook page on July 22 urged authorities to show "respect" to citizens.
