London police have detained seven people from the group, but have not confirmed whether White is among them. The father of the young man was not aware of his son’s activity
According to a British government body, rival hackers and experts blamed the teen, who uses the aliases “White” and “Breshbys”. As a result of attacks on various institutions, the young man allegedly amassed a fortune of 12.7 million euros.
With regard to this case, the City of London Police said they had arrested seven young men belonging to the group, but did not confirm that “White” was one of them.
“Seven people, aged between 16 and 21, were arrested as part of an investigation with a group of intruders. All of them have been released and are still under investigation. Our investigations are continuing,” the force said.
To the BBC, the hacker’s father revealed that he was worried about his son and wanted him to spend less time on the computer.
“I haven’t heard anything about this until recently. He never said anything about hacking, but he is very good at dealing with computers and spends a lot of time on the computer. I always thought I played video games.”
