Army investigators lead FBI to hacking suspect
August 31, 1999
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The U.S. Army released a statement Tuesday saying its investigators provided information to the FBI that has resulted in the arrest of a Wisconsin man suspected of hacking into and altering the Army's Internet home page.
The suspect is 19-year-old Chad Davis of Green Bay, Wisconsin, the reputed co-founder of a hacker organization known as "Global Hell," according to the statement.
The arrest followed a two-month investigation by the Army's Criminal Investigation Command, which routinely cooperates with other law enforcement agencies.
An unidentified intruder gained illegal access at an Army Web page on June 28 and modified it contents, according to the statement.
The intruder also allegedly gained access to an unclassified Army network and removed and modified computer files to prevent detection.
The suspect remains in custody of the FBI.
