Australian Feds charge 17 year-old 'Anon' with four crimes

17-year-old suspected member of ‘Anonymous’ charged with unauthorised access to computer data

A 17-year-old youth appeared in Parramatta Children's Court on Friday (5 April 2013) to face charges relating to unauthorised access to computer data. The juvenile is suspected to be a member of the online issue motivated group "Anonymous" and allegedly committed serious offences on their behalf.

Commander Glen McEwen, Manager Cybercrime Operations, said the AFP takes any computer intrusion offences very seriously and remains committed to investigating offences that occur in cyberspace. "Protesting through computer intrusions and website defacements is not an appropriate method to raise public awareness about any issue," Commander McEwen said. "The AFP investigates various types of cybercrime and will continue to take a strong stance against these perpetrators."
