Reuters suspended the Deputy Social Media Editor for the website for aiding members of Anonymous in a hacking spree. He has since been indicted by a federal Grand Jury in Sacramento, California on crimes he allegedly did before joining Reuters.

Matthew Keys is said to be the one who gave the hackers access to the Tribune Co computers in December 2010 to enable the hacking that happened in that time on The Tribune website. The crimes are alleged to have been performed before Keys joined Reuters who has since been indicted on three criminal counts.

Matthew has been suspended with pay pending a court case scheduled for the 12th of April 2013.
