Arrested for using Lynx

Talk about chilling effects... - somebody in the land of 1984 was arrested for donating money to tsunami victims using the text only Lynx browser. Scary stuff. The BBC reports this as an attack to hack into the website in question.
If it's really true that the arrested man was just an unsuspecting lynx user then it is truly scary that he was arrested at all.
