members from the UK, Ryan Cleary, 20, and Jake "Topiary" Davis, 19, both pleaded guilty to two charges of disabling websites belonging to -among others- the National Health Service, News International, Sony, Nintendo, and the Arizona State Police.
| Both, however, denied two charges that they had posted "unlawfully obtained confidential computer data" to sites such as the Pirate Bay and Pastebin in a bid to encourage or assist actions contrary to the Serious Crimes Act 2007.|
Cleary additionally pleaded guilty to four further hacking charges, including attacks on US Air Force computers at the Pentagon, and denied four charges under the Computer Misuse Act 1990.
Cleary and Davis were both members of "LulzSec," which ran a 50-day hacking campaign in 2011. Ryan Cleary was arrested for his participation in June 2011. Shortly after, Jake Davis was also arrested.
Also, two of their compatriots, Ryan Ackroyd, 25, and an unnamed 17-year-old boy, also from the UK are denying similar allegations lodged against them.
All four will be on trial in April of next year.
