“An online social media editor for the Reuters news agency has been indicted for allegedly helping members of Anonymous hack another media organization’s network.

The editor was outed by the prominent former member of Anonymous known as Sabu who became a snitch for the FBI following his own arrest last year.

Matthew Keys, a 26-year-old deputy social media editor for Reuters in New York, allegedly provided log-in credentials for a server owned by the Tribune Company, his former employer, and encouraged members of Anonymous to use the credentials to ‘go fuck some shit up.’”
