    Spamhaus Hacker caught - BBC Reveal Identity??

    BBC News - Spamhaus hacking suspect 'had mobile attack van'

    This article seems to reveal both the identity and the handle of the hacker in one. Probably coincindental.

    The 35-year-old, identified by police as "SK", was arrested last week.......Police said that upon his arrest SK told them he belonged to the "Telecommunications and Foreign Affairs Ministry of the Republic of Cyberbunker".
    In a statement in March, Cyberbunker "spokesman" Sven Kamphuis took exception to Spamhaus's action, saying in messages sent to the press that it had no right to decide "what goes and does not go on the internet".
    SK = Sven Kamphuis???

    Am I being thick? (Possibly...)

    Don't see how this is different to announcing the arrests of Rolf, Max Clifford, Jim Davison etc.

    There is no difference I suppose. It's just the fact that they appear to have gone to some effort to disguise his identity, both in the text and picture, and then apparently reveal his identity at the end of the article. Poor Journalistic skills on behalf of the BBC.

    The BBC don't deliver news anymore. They just copy and paste from other websites.
