After months of investigation by police and the FBI, a French hacker accused of breaking into the Twitter accounts of President Barack Obama and singer Britney Spears was arrested earlier this week. Francois Cousteix, a 25-year-old unemployed man from central France who is known online as "Hacker Croll," is also accused of breaking into Twitter administrators' accounts and copying confidential data -- an attack that was acknowledged by Twitter cofounder Biz Stone last summer. Cousteix wanted to point out Twitter's vulnerabilities, according to reports.


Interesting waste of taxpayer money.

I wonder if the FBI will go all the way to France to find someone that hacks my tweeter account. I seriously doubt it. This is another example of judicial system playing favorites.
