Someone had to come to FBI rescue for once as there are still some things left in the world where FBI also fails to reach and that is cyberspace. Especially when it comes to hacking, FBI needs to have a little department developed where it can hire hackers or anti-hackers to be appropriate, who would basically protect the FBI. But for this the FBI demands funds and the U.S. government is still to realize that it should get over threatening other states when it forms defense pacts including cyberspace as its jurisdiction, and instead get to do something about those who are hacking into its own system.


The rescuer that dedicately worked 24/7 is known as Sabu in the hacking circles, his real name being Hector Xavier Monsegur according to CNet. It takes one crook to catch another and this is just exactly the case with Monsegur who pleaded guilty in August last year and he could have been sent to jail for 124 years. But becoming an informant was his only way out and he did his best to utilize this option offered. However, the U.S. Attorney announcing details of the case did not confirm whether is what happened.

Recently, unsealed court documents were released on March 8 and were then taken by the Wall Street Journal to report on the story. It reports that Monsegur worked consistently cooperating with the FBI to build cases against the alleged hackers. He engaged the alleged hackers into conversations which were also being recorded just so that the FBI can get evidences against them and the intelligence agency recognized his efforts.

The efforts became successful and the FBI arrested six people in this case which were in the U.S. as well as outside. They had connections with the hacking groups like LulzSec, Anonymous, and AntiSec. These arrested hackers were operating under the radar for some time now. Monsegur also helped FBI identify with “upwards of two dozen vulnerabilities” which were discovered by his colleagues. With this information, the FBI informed other companies which had security holes in their system. Over all, through Monsegur’s help the FBI protected itself against 300 of planned hacks.

What FBI is also aiming at is to lift the mask off their faces to reveal their true identity, because one of the mysteries about these hackers is that they tend to remain unknown to create that awe about them. Also this is something that the FBI is also trying to turn into an example that other hackers would learn lessons from.
