Ryan Cleary and Jake Davis admitted in court to participating widespread hacking ring that caused a massive panic among Sony's security staff and PSN account owners last year.
Cleary and Davis are members of LulzSec, a group of hackers who targeted several media and government websites throughout 2011 including the infiltration of Sony's accounts that exposed nearly 1 million PSN accounts and their private data. The group also attempted to hack into Nintendo's databases.
They are the first two hackers of LulzSec to face a guilty plea for their charges. Two other members, Ryan Ackroyd and "an unnamed 17-year-old," both entered not guilty pleas on their charges with a trial date scheduled in April of 2013. Clearly and Davis still have two remaining counts of "encouraging or assisting others to commit computer offenses and fraud" and could be tried on those charges if prosecutors choose to pursue them in court.
