Hacker sent to jail

You remember my post on The Economy of Cyber-Crime? One of my claims was, that you need to work with Law Enforcement in order to increase the cost for the criminals – and here we have one of the outcomes: Norcross hacker sent to prison

I quote:

William Bryant, 38, was sentenced Thursday, Jan. 10 by U.S. District Judge Thomas W. Thrash on a charge of hacking-knowingly causing the transmission of information to a computer used in interstate commerce, and, as a result, intentionally and without authorization causing damage to that computer.


In addition to his prison term and home confinement, Bryant must spend two years in supervised release, perform 200 hours of community service and pay restitution of $15,470.

I like that
