British cops have arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of hacking into the US Department of Defense.

The National Crime Agency snared a suspected Lizard Squad hacker on Wednesday in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, during a week-long "intensive" national operation against alleged cyber-criminals.

Hackers carried out a network intrusion attack on June 15 last year, gaining access to a DoD satellite communications system. Although no "sensitive data" was obtained, hackers leaked the contact details of 800 people as well as the unique "IMEI" numbers used to identify mobile phones.
