Russian FSB Arrests for Dagestan Intrusions

Axis Information and Analysis provided a short report on the arrest by Russian FSB (Federal Security Services) of an individual for politically motivated intrusions into the systems of various Russian republics:
"In the course of investigation the FSB employees managed to find cyber-criminals of the Ansar group of insurgents who had been engaged in hacker attacks with an aim of distribution of their ideas through the world-wide web, and the 27 y.o. hacker Albert Saayev. The FSB established his participation in breaking of some of the state information resources, including sites of authorities of the Chechen Republic, Dagestan and Ingushetia."
The article alleges that Mr. Saayev had previously been arrested and convicted of similar crimes.
