LulzSec releases stolen Sony Developer network code

LulzSec member said arrested, Sony code stolen

LulzSec, a group of hackers that has recently attacked Sony Pictures and an FBI-affiliated site has now offered up stolen code from Sony Computer Entertainment Developer Network using its Twitter account. Making good on its promise, a 54MB file containing the code is made available. At the same time, a rumor of an arrest of one of the members of the group is circulating.

The news of the arrest is unofficial and unproven, and came from the Full Disclosure mailing list that focuses on computer security. The message claims to contain a chat log from LulzSec's private IRC chat server and that "one of them is already in FBI custody."

Whether or not this is true is not confirmed, but with the kind of trouble the group has been causing lately, it's entirely likely. [via AllThingsSD]
