20-year-old arrested over massive data hack in Germany

A suspect arrested for a mass data breach in Germany has confessed to the police. The 20-year-old male says he committed the crime out of anger towards statements made by the politicians and public figures he targeted.

Personal information from roughly 1,000 individuals was published on Twitter before Christmas. Private messages and photos were also made public. Authorities say they learned about the data theft late last week.
