LulzSec hacker pleads guilty to Sony Pictures attack, faces prison sentence
Raynaldo Rivera, from Tempe, Arizona, has admitted hacking into computer systems belonging to Sony Pictures, and stealing the personal information and passwords of thousands of innocent internet users
The attack, which took place in May last year, was part of a concerted attack against Sony websites by LulzSec and Anonymous hackers during 2011.
Rivera, who was arrested by the FBI in August, admitted his guilt in the form of a plea agreement filed with Los Angeles Federal Court.
Rivera - who used online nicknames including "neuron", "royal", and "wildicv" - admitted launching an SQL injection attack against the Sony Pictures website, extracting confidential and personal user information - such as the names, birth dates, addresses, emails, phone numbers and passwords of people who had entered Sony contests.
