Super-grass Sabu was grassed up by another Anonymous member

Written by Nick Farrell



Jennifer Emick claims she got him busted


After it was revealed that Sabu of LulzSec had been grassing up members of Anonymous for months, it turns out that his arrest was the result of another member who turned him in.

Jennifer Emick has been telling the world+dog that it was thanks to her efforts that the FBI caught Sabu. whose name is Hector Xavier Monsegur. Apparently he pleaded guilty to computer hacking charges in August and spent the last six months working as an informant for the FBI. The undercover operation led to hacking-related charges being filed against four alleged cohorts in the UK, Ireland and the US on Tuesday.

Jennifer Emick told CNET she was the first to match a face and real name with the well-known hacker handle. Emick had been on demos against Scientology with Anonymous in 2008 and 2009. She was miffed when she started getting harassed online for criticising the group's hacking activities.  So she spent four hours of her life tracking him down and grassing him up.
