    More than 100 people worldwide have been arrested following an FBI-led crackdown on hackers linked to a "remote administration tool" called Blackshades.

    Raids took place in more than a dozen countries, according to officials who spoke to Time magazine, and involved law enforcement agencies in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. According to the UK's National Crime Agency, 17 of those arrested were based in Britain.

    The charges are still sealed, but US prosectors are expected to announce some of the results at a press conference midday in New York.

      Not surprising the UK made the most arrests, GCHQ is enthusiastic about arresting hackers these days.

      So how long until the UK issues warrants against NSA hackers and the DoJ against GCHQ hackers?

      It cannot be long until Clapper, Hayden and Alexander are behind bars, I'm sure.


      No one is coming to save us, the future is in our hands.
