PLEAS: Two British members of the notorious Lulz Security hacking collective have pleaded guilty to conspiring with other members of LulzSec to attack government, media, and law enforcement websites. Two others pleaded not guilty to the same charges. All four have denied encouraging or assisting others to commit fraud or other computer offenses.
ABOUT THE ATTACKS: LulzSec has claimed responsibility for attacks against sites run by the CIA, PBS and Rupert Murdoch's News International.
ELSEWHERE: One of the defendants faces a U.S. federal indictment in relation to the attacks, but his attorney vows to "fiercely contest" any extradition moves.
