Hector Monsegur aka SABU was arrested on June 7, 2011. He became an FBI informant on June 8th. During his time with the FBI, Sabu is alleged to have prevented 300 cyber attacks on assorted government and media websites. His information led to the identification and conviction of at least 8 of his cohorts.
These are a few interesting tweets from his old timeline. The first tweet below is from the @freesabu account. It has just that one tweet.
@lulzsec Hate to inform you this way, but Sabu has been arrested. There supposedly will be a press release from the arresting agency soon.

Lulzsec is busy on the biggest hack ever… So I hear anyway 😉 1:09 AM – 18 Jun 2011
If god forbid I am arrested, I’ll admit to my crimes, and take myself down. I do not believe in bringing others down for my own sins. Thanks 9:22 AM – 16 Aug 2011
An unnamed group sent me back the list of 800,000+ stratfor hashes with over 92% of the logins cracked. Thanks gents! #antisec
The stratfor hack is important on many levels. Think about the very point we had access to its userlist for months, now consider its users.
If you want to be technical we’ve had control over stratfor for months. Has anyone confirmed if any of their intel reports were compromised?
On December 26th, 2011, Stratfor was hacked

You think we are done? stratfor was the beginning. Many more whitehats and intelligence targets to go. We are #antisec. We are Anonymous.
