The Metropolitan Police made the announcement as they confirmed that officers have questioned a 35-year-old man, named by sources as Dan Evans, a former News of the World feature writer, on suspicion of intercepting voicemails.
The police chief leading the major investigation into criminal activities at the News International paper expressed her annoyance over the officer's alleged "unauthorised disclosure".
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Sue Akers, in charge of Operation Weeting, said: "I made very clear when I took on this investigation the need for operational and information security. It is hugely disappointing that this may not have been adhered to.
"The MPS takes the unauthorised disclosure of information extremely seriously and has acted swiftly in making these arrests."
About 45 police officers are investigating claims the now-defunct newspaper eavesdropped on the mobile phone voicemail messages of celebrities, royals, politicians and crime victims.
Suspended NOTW journalist Mr Evans was held for questioning on suspicion of conspiring to unlawfully intercept voicemails, sources said.
He was arrested by appointment at a London police station and later bailed until October.
