Man arrested over alleged hacking offence

Bailed until October pending further investigations

Exclusive A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the alleged hacking of a Web site owned by a Wapping-based business premises. The man -- who has not been named by police -- was arrested last Wednesday and released without charge. He was bailed to appear at Holborn Police Station in October pending further investigations. It is understood the arrest was part of a special operation conducted by the Computer Crime Unit based at New Scotland Yard. Last month the CurrantBun.Com Web site was hacked and the personal details of 50 people were published on the Net. CurrantBun.com is the portal of Britain's most popular newspaper The Sun which is based at Wapping, London. David Habanec claimed responsibility for the alleged break-in at CurrantBun.com. At the time he made no secret that he was responsible and went out of his way to court publicity over the alleged intrusion. He even published details of how he carried out the breach of security. In an exclusive interview with The Register Habanec said he did it to gain notoriety among the Internet community. He also alleged it was part of a revenge attack against Cheshire-based ISP Telinco, the company that provides the network for CurrantBun.Com. ®
