    Another 15-year-old teenager got arrested from the land of cakes, Scotland, by British Police for breaking into the FBI Systems on 16th February.

    Under the Britain’s anti-hacking law, Computer Misuse Act 1990, the boy has been arrested for his role in hacking and unauthorized access to the digital material.

    The hacktivist group "Cracka with Attitude" is behind a series of hacks on the United States government and its high-level officials, including:

    Additionally, it is assumed that only one more member (with a pseudonym "Thwarting Exploits") has been left in the CWA group to get busted, as this got evident from his tweet finalizing the fact that it is a the third member of the group.

    Nowadays, the amateurish approach of teenage hackers are hunting down the world's greatest Crime solvers such as FBI and CIA.

    The busted cyber criminals are liable to spend their rest of the life behind bars. The cyber laws are strict enough; that it would eat up your whole life years and even beyond your lifetime sometimes.​
