Glasgow Schoolboy Suspected Of FBI Hacking

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in Glasgow over an alleged attempt to hack into FBI computer networks.

The schoolboy was questioned earlier this week by Police Scotland as FBI agents flown in from the US watched on, according to the Daily Record.

He was arrested over the Computer Misuse Act which covers hacking and unauthorised access to computer material.

The teenager has since been released by officers but is to be reported to the procurator fiscal.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Following a search of a property in the Glasgow area on Tuesday February 16, a 15-year-old male was arrested in connection with alleged offences under the Computer Misuse Act 1990.

"He has since been released and is the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal.''
