Game over: FBI arrests alleged LulzSec hackers in the U.S.

It was only a matter of time before the FBI tracked LulzSec members down for wreaking havoc on the Internet over this past spring. With three new alleged critical arrests, it's almost safe to say the FBI got the last "lulz."

The suspects arrested are 23-year-old Cody Kretsinger from Phoenix, 47-year-old Christopher Doyon from Mountain View, California and 26-year-old Joshua Covelli from Fairborn, Ohio. All have been charged with using "distributed denial of service" attacks that helped bring Sony's PSN down for nearly two months.

For those keeping up with all of LulzSec's hackings, the FBI's new find is the most significant haul since the U.K's Metropolitan police's e-crime unit arrested LulzSec spokesman "Topiary" back in July.

The suspected LulzSec members also all hail from the U.S. All prior arrests related to the hacking group were made in the U.K., including that of 19-year-old Ryan Cleary.

With no activity on its Twitter account since July 27, we'd say that LulzSec was already dead, even without these arrests. Well, good for the FBI. At least it's doing something about it. They really miffed a lot of Sony gamers!
