Apparently the feds know someone in the infamous internet hacker cyberterrorist group ‘Anonymous’ who does not want to rock and roll all night. The “hacktivist” was finally arrested by the FBI this week after taking down the website of KISS frontman Gene Simmons earlier this year.
The Gene Simmons Family Jewels star received a Denial of Service attack on his site after taking part in an anti-piracy conference last October. Kevin George Poe was arrested this week after the FBI found him to be one of the group members responsible for the attack on the rock star’s website.
Poe has turned himself in to authorities and will have to attend court in Los Angeles in the near future. He is allegedly one of many hackers in the group who are known for recent online criminal mischief, such as exposing individuals’ private information, including the identities of members of the Zeta drug cartel.
The FBI has been after members of ‘Anonymous’ since last year’s cyberattacks on PayPal and certain credit card companies. This group has been deemed as a threat to many individuals, as well as some major corporations.
