Inspector Le Knackeur of the Paris Yard has arrested 22 people, mostly teens, across France in connection with a hacking investigation.
According to AP, the arrests follow a probe in the eastern city of Dijon in February. More than 30 French and foreign companies complained that they had a bad case of hackers and coppers tracked down the source.
At this point le plod are not ruling out economic espionage as the motivation for the attack. However since many of the suspects are young, with one only 13 years old, they might have only been doing it "for LOLs".
The arrests took place in Paris, and southern and central France. µ
