UK Arrests Suspect in DoD Cyber Attack 03/06 06:23

   LONDON (AP) -- Britain's National Crime Agency says a suspected hacker has 
been arrested in connection with a cyber attack on the U.S. Department of 
Defense.

   The agency said Friday the 23-year-old man arrested in western England is 
suspected of offenses linked to data stolen from a messaging service used by 
DoD employees.

   The agency says contact information for around 800 people was obtained in 
the attack in June.

   The hacker posted screenshots from the dashboard used to control the 
database and also posted a message on the text storage website Pastebin 
reading, "We smite the Lizards, LizardSquad your time is near. We're in your 
bases, we control your satellites."

   The agency says no sensitive data was obtained and that it did not threaten 
national security.
