If you've been using Anonymous' LOIC (Low Orbit Ion Cannon) as part of Operation Payback, it looks like arrests are coming. Slowly but surely, the FBI is going through the IP addresses sent with each attacking packet.
According to Carrumba from the Mega Panzer blog, with "the current version of LOIC, your current IP is sent in each packet header. Meaning your home IP address, meaning the trail does lead back to you. Yeah, I know what you're thinking. That really does suck".
I know that Anonymous provided instructions on what to do in case you get caught, but as Crabby Ol Bastard explains in this entry on the Crabbyolbastard Ruminates blog, "Anonymous has failed to think this all through and certainly has no idea about the legalities here to be telling anyone of these kids out there using LOIC that they are going to be ok. It may be all about the lulz, but soon it's going to be all about CYA and lots of lawyers fees kids."
