A Phoenix man alleged to be a member of the LulzSec hacking group was arrested by the FBI on charges he broke into Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc.’s computer systems in May and June.

Cody Kretsinger was arrested yesterday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in an e-mailed statement. Kretsinger, 23, belonged to Lulz Security, or LulzSec, a group of “elite computer hackers” that undertook cyber attacks on the computer systems of businesses and government entities in the U.S. and around the world, according to an indictment unsealed yesterday in federal court in Los Angeles.
