Welcome to the Anonymous Arena. Where different teams and governments team up to fight the battle on Cyber Security Aspects. As the last couple of weeks have shown the Internet is a free network were people will take full adventage of. 

The Arrest of the assumed Lulzsec member Ryan Cleary shows that the government is willing the give a face to these groups. So the next question pops up. Who is Anonymous? Who is Lulzsec and why are governments trying to give these  teams a face instead of solving these issues? 

According to the BBC, citing locals in Essex and the man's mother, 19-year-old Ryan Cleary was arrested by police last night.

In what appears to be a statement posted to Youtube from the collective known as Anonymous, a second round of attacks against the Government of Malaysia is planned for the 4th of July at 13:37 GMT (21:37 MYT).
