Last year on Christmas, group of hackers "Lizard Sqaud" had attacked two major online gaming server of Sony PlayStation and Xbox Live with a high bandwidth Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) that tooks both the gaming server completely offline for more than 24 hours.

On the hack attempt FBI have earlier arrested one Lizard Squad member Vinnie Omari, on suspicion of unauthorized computer access with intent to commit other offences. But he was later released with no charges filed.

And now again Britain's South East Regional Organised Crime Unit has arrested an 18-year-old man over the denial of service attacks over the same hack attack on Sony Playstation and Xbox systems over Christmas. 

The Crime Unit had arrested a man from Boundary Street in Southport, UK, just this morning. Police seized "a number" of electronic and digital devices from the property, which will now be examined by cyber forensics teams.

Deputy Chief Constable Peter Goodman, the national policing lead for cyber security at the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo), said it was a “significant” arrest. “This arrest demonstrates that we will pursue those who commit crime with the false perception they are protected within their own homes or hiding behind anonymous online personas".

Is He a Member of Lizard Squad?
Though till yet there is no confirmation about the suspected to be link with the PSN and Xbox live hackers group, Lizard Sqaud.  As Sony PlayStation and Xbox live was brought down by the Lizard Squad, there may be chance that he could be also the member of hackers group but not confirmed.
