Another member of the hacker collective Anonymous has been unmasked this week. FBI raided the home of Deric Lostutter in April. Two laptops, flash drives, CD's, an external hard-drive, cell phones and an Xbox were reportedly seized during the raid.
Deric Lostutter, a 26-year-old from Winchester, is also known as KYAnonymous, a member of the hacktivist collective Anonymous who leaked a video showing the young men who raped an unconscious teenaged girl in Steubenville, Ohio, bragging about what they did in a disgustingly proud manner.
In March, football stars Trent Mays, 17, and Ma'lik Richmond, 16, were convicted of the rape. They were sentenced to a minimum of one year in a juvenile detention institution with a maximum stay until they are 21.
Lostutter, a self-employed IT security consultant and self-described Anonymous member, said that he'd just returned from a turkey hunt when he noticed what appeared to be a FedEx truck in his driveway. "As I open the door to great [sic] the driver approximately 12 F.B.I. Swat Team agents jumped out of the truck screaming for me to 'Get The F**k Down' with m-16 assault rifles and full riot gear armed safety off, pointed directly at my head,"
The raid of Deric’s home was said to be in connection to the hacking of a site called RollRedRoll, a fan site for the Steubenville football team that got defaced by Anonymous during the controversy over the incident.
Lostutter told that he didn't hack RolledRoll.com and he said the screenshots were obtained by him through online activists. Rollredroll.com webmaster James Park's email account was broken into, and many of his private emails dumped online.
He could face up to 10 years of jail time if he’s convicted of hacking-related crimes.
