Teens arrested amidst Lapsus$ crackdown

City of London police have arrested seven individuals between the ages of 16-21 in connection with the Lapsus$ ransom attacks, according to the BBC.

All of those arrested have been released under investigation.

At this time, it is unclear whether the 16 year old alleged ringleader, operating out of his Mother’s house, is among these.

It has been revealed, however, that this individual has autism and attends a special education school in Oxford.

After falling out with his colleagues, the boy was doxxed, revealing both his personal details and the $14m in Bitcoin he had accumulated from the attacks.

Researchers traced him relatively easily after he made some crucial opsec errors.
