PC World: iPad Hacker Arrested on Drug Charges After FBI Search | Man once bragged he was on acid while delivering a security conference presentation.
Computerworld - One of the hackers in the group that snatched more than 100,000 iPad owner e-mail addresses from AT&T's servers was arrested Tuesday on felony drug charges after the FBI searched his Arkansas home.
Andrew "Escher" Auernheimer was arrested by Fayetteville, Ark., police and was booked into the Washington County Detention Center Tuesday afternoon, where he is being held on bonds totaling $3,160.
Auernheimer, 24, faces four felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and one misdemeanor drug charge. According to CNET News, which first reported the arrest, police found drugs that included cocaine, ecstasy, LSD, and Schedule 2 and 3 pharmaceuticals when they searched his home.
Auernheimer, who also goes by the hacker nickname "weev," is one of 10 members of Goatse Security, a hacking group that used an automated script to collect 114,000 iPad e-mail addresses from AT&T through a public feature of the carrier's Web site.
