Guest: Hector Xavier Monsegur
Four years ago HECTOR XAVIER MONSEGUR, an Anonymous computer hacker better know by the online pseudonym “Sabu”, pleaded guilty in a U.S. District Court to 12-counts of computer hacking and other crimes. A conviction that was kept secret from the public.
At the time, many activists, supporters and participants involved with Anonymous were unaware that months prior Mr. Monsegur had agreed to cooperate with the FBI who were investigating the criminal activity of hackers operating within the Anonymous collective.
Mr. Monsegur became public enemy number one by Anonymous once it was revealed he had cooperated with law enforcement as they located and arrested Anonymous hackers. Most notably, the arrest of a hacker known online as “Anarchaos” and later unmasked as Mr. Jeremy Hammond.
