Serbia arrests member of Anonymous hacking group

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) ? Serbian authorities say they have arrested a member of the Anonymous hacking group in the Balkan country.

Prosecutor Branko Stamenkovic has told Serbia’s state television the suspect was involved in a hacking attempt on several official websites earlier Thursday.

Stamenkovic says police have raided homes of several people and found “evidence of criminal activity.” He says the arrested suspect faces charges of cyber sabotage and up to five years in prison if convicted.

A group calling themselves Anonymous Serbia have recently surfaced in the Balkan country. They have claimed responsibility for the hacking of the sites of a commercial television station and a popular folk show.
