According to the FBI, you're looking at Sabu, the head of LulzSec, and the de facto King of Anonymous — easily the most notorious and influential hacker alive today. One thing: he just turned in his people to the police.
Anonymous boasts of itself as being a loose collective, a patchwork of mixed, at times conflicting ideals, sans leadership. It seems to work well for them! Except this nebulousness also lets in pretty much anyone. Including the cops.
Several alleged members of the Anonymous activist group will soon be asked to confirm their names and addresses by authorities, thanks to a global clampdown that has seen dozens of supposed Anonymous members arrested.
