A 19-year old “cracker” known by the handle Mindphasr and suspected leader of the cracker group Global Hell has been detained by Federal authorities. The Justice Department announced Monday that Chad Davis, of Green Bay, was arrested and charged in a federal complaint with hacking into the U.S. Army computer and “maliciously” interfering with the communications system. The complaint said he gained illegal access to an Army Web page and modified the contents. He was also accused of gaining access to an unclassified Army network and removing and modifying its computer files to prevent detection. The Justice department has failed to state whether or not this arrest is related to various hacks which occurred over the summer.
