Teenager Detained in UK on Suspicion He Hacked FBI, CIA and White House

English Police that arrested one teenager suspected he accessed the e-mails belonging to higher officials of USA in 2015 followed with posting the private information of almost 30,000 employees in the America government on the Internet, recently. However, the teenage boy is now free after submitting bail.

SEROCU (South East Regional Organized Crime Unit) wrote a curt electronic mail meant for media near the weekend, substantiating that they'd detained one boy (16-yrs-old) within England's East-Midlands area on 9th February 2016. The detention followed after 3 suspected breaches of the 1990 Computer Misuse Act. The e-mail added the boy was doubted as being "Cracka," name of the mysterious Web-hacker since he asserted as being behind the incident, while belonging to a gang named CWA (Crackas with Attitude) understandably responsible for several other high-profile assaults executed serially.

Last autumn when CWA started performing hacks, they targeted the personal e-mail on AOL client for John Brennan, Director of CIA; Mark Giuliano Deputy Director of FBI; James Clapper Director of USA's National Intelligence; and John Holdren Science-and-Technology Senior Advisor to President Barrack Obama.

The gang has as well been behind infiltrating the database of national arrests of JABS USA and also exposing information belonging to 2,400 officials of America government, eighty police officers of Miami, while quite recently, 9,000 staff members of DHS as well as 20,000 staffers of FBI. CWA, within the two instances, invaded the accounts employing socially-engineered tactics like acquiring the personal passwords from technical support alternatively service providers via pretending to be legitimate owners of the A/Cs instead of performing computer-decryption. Rt.com posted this, February 12, 2016.

CWA team's remaining members are conjecturing about Cracka possibly overlooking utilizing his VPN while logging into the website as well as publishing the data that helped United Kingdom cops trace his actual Internet Protocol followed with his actual residence. The police's operation, however, hasn't stopped the group's other members. Till now they haven't leaked DOJ employees' data that according to them was actually undergoing preparation for leakage.

"Cracka" asserted self-applause because he published the confidential data from the A/Cs, especially, personal information and e-mail ids of American intelligence officers.
