FBI, British police nab alleged 'crackas' hacker

The FBI and British police think they finally cracked the case of "Crackas with Attitude."

British police have arrested a teenager who allegedly was behind a series of audacious -- and, for senior U.S. national security officials, embarrassing -- hacks targeting personal accounts or top brass at the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security Department, the White House and other federal agencies, according to U.S. officials briefed on the investigation.

The officials declined to name the alleged hacker. He is under age and it's unclear what charges he could face.
