Police Nab Teen in England Believed to Be Behind LulzSec

Digital Vision/Thinkstock(LONDON) -- A teenager believed to be a main player behind the hacking group LulzSec has been arrested in England, according to Scotland Yard.

The 19-year-old, who has not been identified, was detained in Wickford, Essex after a joint operation by the FBI and Scotland Yard.  He is being held at a police station in London where he is being questioned.  No charges have yet been filed.

LulzSec has taken credit for cyber attacks on various websites, including ones belonging to Sony and the U.S. Senate.  Just last week, the group claimed responsibility for an electronic attack on the CIA's public website.
