Homeless Hacker Arrested for Anonymous Crimes

Another couple of people suspected of being members of the hacking collectives Anonymous and LulzSec were picked up today. One was reportedly homeless, which brings up some interesting logistical questions.

According to Fox News, an alleged Anonymous member in San Francisco arrested today is homeless and is suspected of attacking Santa Cruz County government websites. According to a tweet by a well-known Anonymous adversary, the guy arrested in San Francisco may be an Anonymous ringleader named Commander X, who helped lead Anonymous operations against the Orlando city government as well.

How'd this homeless guy do his hacking, though? A public library? It's actually not unprecedented: Adrian Lamo, who's recently made headlines for snitching on alleged Wikileaker Bradley Manning, was known as the "Homeless Hacker" back in the day; he broke into the New York Times from Kinkos shops.
