Dutch authorities said on Thursday that they have arrested a 16-year-old hacker involved in the pro-Wikileaks attacks on the websites of MasterCard and PayPal.

The Dutch National Prosecutors Office said that the teenager, who was not named, was arrested by a high-tech crime team on Wednesday night.

The arrest comes after a group known as Anonymous — the online collective engaged in a global cyber-war with the pro-copyright industry — organised attacks on websites of companies that have distanced themselves from Wikileaks. Distributed denial-of-service attacks enlist thousands of computers, all making simultaneous connections, in hopes of overwhelming a target.
