UCF Student Arrested by FBI for Alleged Computer Intrusion
On Tuesday, July 19, 2011, Scott Matthew Arciszewski, 21, was arrested by FBI special agents at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida without incident. FBI agents also executed a federal search warrant at Arciszewski’s residence, 132 East Plaza Drive, Orlando, Florida. FBI intelligence gathering efforts uncovered an attempt by unknown individuals to target and attack the InfraGard Tampa Chapter website. With the assistance of the local InfraGard website host, FBI agents were able to develop information which led to today’s law enforcement actions.
