An online social media editor for the Reuters news agency has been indicted for allegedly helping members of Anonymous hack another media organizationâs network.

The editor was outed by the prominent former member of Anonymous known as Sabu who became a snitch for the FBI following his own arrest last year.

Matthew Keys, a 26-year-old deputy social media editor for Reuters in New York, allegedly provided log-in credentials for a server owned by the Tribune Company, his former employer, and encouraged members of Anonymous to use the credentials to âgo fuck some shit up.â

According to the indictment (.pdf), Keys, who used the Twitter handle @ProducerMatthew, had been working as a web producer for television station KTXL FOX 40 in Sacramento, which is owned by the Tribune Company, when he lost his job in late October 2010.
