Just when it was all going quite on the cyber attack front http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-33542490
Darkode - anotorious hacking forum used by Lizard Squad and other cybercriminals - has been shut down after an investigation carried out by authorities in 20 countries.
"We have dismantled a cyber-hornets' nest... which was believed by many, including the hackers themselves, to be impenetrable," said one of the US state attorneys involved.
Twenty-eight people have been arrested. They include a 26-year-old man from Coventry, England.
In addition, the UK's National Crime Agency said an address in Paisley, Scotland, had been searched and material removed for examination. It said that five other suspected members of the site had previously been arrested.
The FBI added that dozens of other people linked to the site had been charged or had their property searched as part of the inquiry.
Not sure this is a sensible move as normally the fellow travellers of the hacking collective get motivated to fight another round, keep your eyes open
