McALLEN, Texas (AP) — Federal authorities have arrested a man they say is linked to the hacker collective Anonymous and who allegedly broke into a South Texas county Web site.
The Monitor of McAllen reports (http://bit.ly/1ek4fiB ) Fidel Salinas Jr. remains in federal custody awaiting a detention hearing after being arrested last week by the FBI on a charge of accessing a protected computer without authorization.
According to court documents, the Hidalgo County Web site was hacked on Jan. 5, 2012.
Authorities say Salinas initially told investigators he was just checking to see if he could get into the Web site to alert network administrators of security problems.
According to court documents, Salinas later told FBI agents he would often talk to members of Anonymous.
Court records did not list an attorney for Salinas.
