Seen under 'Update 2': During a television report this afternoon, Sky News has claimed suspected hacker Ryan Cleary "has mental health issues." Make of that what you will.
Yeah you would have to be mental to provoke all of these agencies with that kind of flippant behavior.
You can bet your life it'll be used as the excuse.
Since he's already caught he might as well cooperate with them and name a few other members.
Well it would be interesting to see if he has a prior history. Regardless I can't see any sympathy being cast his way. They will be making an example out of him. Theoretically if he gets off light then there are no real consequences for these actions. It would only serve to exacerbate it further.
I think its safe to assume that all lulzec and anon members have mental issues
Sky news = Fox news. Seriously, they are a joke in the UK, I wouldn't trust anything they say.
So far that's working for Gary McKinnon...
"has mental health issues" I say about over 50% of the n4g population does too, lol.
He's not the right one. But Ballsac is still screwed. This Ryan turd is their IRC operator. Their leader is a creepy looking old guy. Have a look here. http://lulzsecexposed.blogs... SUPPORT THE WEB NINJAS!
Lulzsec say he isn't a member, but of course they would say that. I wonder
Except its not LulzSec, they still tweeting and doing teh lulz haha
except they'd obviously say he's nobody either way
Isn't Ryan Cleary the guy who started going against Anon? He used to be with Anon, then went rogue and attacked Anonymous. (Here's a link to one of the articles that mentions his attack http://bit.ly/jV8z0Y ) In order to get revenge, Anon found out and released Ryan's info... which is probably how he got caught by the police. If anything, it's amazing it took this long to catch him when his details were leaked over a month ago. http://anonops.blogspot.com... It's odd how people here seem so happy that he got caught, when all he was doing was giving the hackers a taste of their own medicine.
This LulzSec game isn't even out yet and they're already talking about DLC? I swear this "mental health issues" character better not be on the disc or I'm not buying. ...Wait this isn't about a video game? But this is news4gamers.... Get this garbage out of here! I swear you guys drool over LulzSec more than Gears 3, Battlefield 3 and Uncharted 3 combined on this site.
Now the crazies are making it into the web. At least thieves have clear motives and reasons behind their stealing like stealing for personal gain. Crazies on the otherhand attack because they are crazy. Reminds me of joker in Dark Knight which is pretty scary. It makes sense though. Lulzec seems to be anarchist. Take a gifted hacker + e-penis issues + mental issues and we have serious problems online. At least terrorist have cause no matter how stupid they are. These guys just attack without any pattern/reason and just for the laugh just like the joker.
I think he got arrested... http://www.mirror.co.uk/201...
Of course he's mental for thinking he's safe to do what pleases him behind a computer
I don't know this guy, but it feels stupid insulting his mental condition if nobody even knows if he is guilty.
A mental condition could be anything. He could suffer from extreme narcissism. IDK, I don't think they'd arrest just anybody without any probable cause that they're sure this is someone of interest.
A 'get out of jail free' card in the court of law!
its not like he would be in jail that long any ways the laws are a joke the other people that were caught could face at most 3 years, thats pathetic.
Am i the only one who thinks the court is f*cked up?? http://youtu.be/VgXjNkwVyeE
Even if he gets sentenced, it'll most likely be a suspended sentence. He'll have a criminal record but since he's technically no danger to society, they won't waste money on putting him in a cell.
I know in the US he would lose the right to use any computer device for awhile.Not sure about their,but its a good punishment for hackers.
I doubt it, hasn't worked for Gary McKinnon and it seems it won't work for him http://www.independent.co.u...
Im sure he has.
How convenient, looks like someone is familiar with the Mckinnon case.
If he does have mental health issues then make him serve his punishment at Ravenhill. Time to meet the Silent Singer.
All hackers are sociopaths, why else would they be hackers to begin with?
I....agree? ...Wait, something must be wrong here...
people who take anything SKY NEWS says seriously has mental health issues
I feel no remorse.
Why is it that when wrongdoers get caught they either find God or claim to be mentally unstable?
They claim to be mentally unstable to get a lesser charge. They find God because they don't have the distraction of the world to tell them not to. Also, you're more inclined to find God if you don't believe in him before you feel that conviction. "If a person doesn't think there is a God to be accountable to, then what's the point of trying to modify your behaviour to keep it within acceptable ranges? That's how I thought anyway. I always believed the theory of evolution as truth, that we all just came from the slime. When we, when we died, you know, that was it, there is nothing ..." - Jeffrey Dahmer (After being saved, obviously.)
Bubbles for the response,a mature comment is a rarity on N4G.I have to admit that Dahmer's quote creeped me out a bit.
Thank you. Bubbles back at ya, man! Dahmer has many quotes that creep people out. Read his autobiography. It's brilliant! I've researched many serial killers for essays at college (forensics) and Dahmer is still the most interesting person to me.
sky news said he hacked playstation website aswell?
Oh, great. We have a bunch of Rain Men destroying our websites...
take that, biatch!!!
Hackers are social retards so what did you expect?
They always use that as a defence....
Now...Where the hell is Jigsaw?
LULZSEC member has got mental illness...normally I'd feel bad,but since it's LULZSEC....LULZ!!
Hey you aren't being rude it's "just for the lulz" right? XD
This shouldn't even be funny, but I can't help it
This is hilarious. Thank god he's not a minor too!
Why am I not surprised? I would only expect the worst from hackers. They are the lowest lifeforms of any.
lol obviously....Lulzsec is basically Anonymous which reside in the website 4chan. We all know wat happens in that website...no wonder he was mentally retarded you would have to be to cope with the stuff that they post on that website and shrug it off as the normal thing to do. These guys act tough on the Internet thats how lame they are....complete shut ins.
Yup..-raises my glass-
Yeah, of cause he's got mental heath problems 'Other compaies told me to hack them'........
I really don't know why people act like lulzsec and anonymous is some secret group of people. There are no members, there is no super-secret sign up, nothing like that. It's literally people that are just bored at their computer looking for a good laugh, so they join in with DDosing or whatever else with direction from twitter or IRC chats. Also, why is this gaming news?
N4G is a community of gamers posting and discussing the latest game news. It’s part of NewsBoiler, a network of social news sites covering today’s pop culture.
