Some have been called criminals and troublemakers, some freedom fighters and political activists. Now, three can assuredly be called indicted.

Two computer hackers affiliated with the hacking collectives LulzSec and Anonymous have been arrested by the FBI, reports Fox News.

Cody Kretsinger, 23, was charged in Phoenix with conspiracy and the unauthorized impairment of a protected computer. Christopher Doyon, 47, was charged in Mountain View, Calif. with conspiracy to cause intentional damage to a protected computer, causing intentional damage to a protected computer and aiding and abetting. Joshua Covelli, a 26-year-old in Fairborn, Ohio, was charged with the same.

According to Fox, the indictments allege that Doyon and Covelli participated in a “distributed denial of service” attack on the computer servers of Santa Cruz County, Calif. in 2010 as part of the People’s Liberation Front, a hacking group associated with Anonymous. The attack took the county computers offline.

Kretsinger is believed to have taken part in the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment using a hacking technique called SQL injection to obtain confidential information from Sony, according to Fox. He is then alleged to have distributed the stolen information on the LulzSec site and on Twitter.
