hypnosec (2231454) writes "Raynaldo Rivera has pled guilty of hacking Sony Pictures Entertainment website in May 2011 at the US District Court for the Central District of California. The 20 year old, in his plea agreement, revealed that he joined Lulzsec in the month of May last year in a bid to help the hacking collective carry out cyberattacks on governments and businesses. Rivera, who surrendered to the FBI on August 28 this year, admitted that he was the one who launched an SQL injection attack against sonypictures.com that enabled him to extract confidential information from the website's database."
