bad for him
Wonder if Obama is going to pull a Bush and start threatening to withhold goodies from our bought off Eastern Europe "allies" if they don't do what he tells them. Wouldn't surprise me at this point. No Star Wars defense pork 4 joo.
A Slovenian court has declined America's request to extradite hacker Victor Faur, on the basis that he's already received a sentence in Romania.

Man, sometimes people just are ungrateful.
If he didn't damage, destroy, diminish, or publish the security flaws, then good on him, and bad on them for looking a gift horse in the mouth and crying foul. One'd think that agencies striving for constantly-improved security would say, "Thanks! But, next time, get a Test Requisition Chit" instead of globally hunting down someone who could be converted into an asset more smoothly.
I admit I did not follow the matter and so my shoot-from-the-hip bit may need some re-tuning (coerced or ham-fisted retuning roundly rejected...).
U.S. Government departments REALLY do not like having the piss taken out of their lack of security, do they!
As dssf says, ungrateful lot. Ah, but you didn't follow the rules that we set up for testing - or in this case not bothering to test - obviously!
In fact, having lived in Texas for a for a couple of years and come up against this sort of bureaucratic crap, I have concluded that a prerequisite for anyone working for a U.S. government department is to have had a frontal lobotomy to remove both common sense and any sense of humour (or in their case humor).
The U.K. has an excellent term for these sort of people - jobsworths, where their only qualification is to be able to follow rules.
