LONDON (CNN) — A teenager has been arrested near London in connection with the hacking of Sony, London’s Metropolitan Police said Tuesday.
The 19-year-old is suspected of hacking into systems and mounting denial of service attacks against “a number of international businesses and intelligence agencies,” police said. Naming suspects who have been arrested in Britain is illegal.
Sony’s PlayStation Network went down on April 20 after what Sony said was a massive data breach. It began coming back on line in mid-May.
