This story comes under the 'How stupid can you be' category.

U.K. police arrested a 19-year-old on Monday for allegedly attacking a police Web site earlier in the day, in what is the first arrest connected with the rogue hacking group Lulz Security.

The Metropolitan Police Central e-Crime Unit (PCeU) said the teenager was detained following an investigation into network intrusions and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against "a number of international business and intelligence agencies by what is believed to be the same hacking group."

Police did not release more details in the statement or name the hacking group, but a Scotland Yard spokesman said Monday afternoon that the arrest was connected with the DDoS attacks on Monday on the website of the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), a national police unit that tackles organized crime. The arrest was characterized as a "pre-planned, intelligence-led operation," the statement said.

What idiot takes on "The Serious Organised Crime Agency"? One of the divisions of SOCA specialises in detecting computer crime. He got arrested within hours of starting the attack. I guess some people will never learn.  :lol:
