A British man has been charged with hacking into the computer systems of the US army, Nasa and other federal agencies.
The 28-year-old, named as Lauri Love from Suffolk, was arrested by officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) under the Computer Misuse Act (CMA). He has been released on police bail until next February.
Under the CMA, individuals can be arrested for launching attacks from within the UK against computers anywhere in the world.
Love is believed to have lived in the Stradishall and Lowestoft areas.
