Two LulzSec hacking suspects have admitted launching hacking attacks against the CIA and the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency. Ryan Cleary, 20, of Wickford, Essex, and Jake Davis, 19, of Lerwick, Shetland, both admitted involvement in a string of computer hacking attacks at a hearing at London's Southwark Crown Court on …
Did they plead guilty to being complete twonks aswell? Can't see why they want to pretend they didn't upload data they stole, pretty pointless considering the Police et al will have been going through their computers, their ISP records and won't have made the charge without plenty of evidence. Sooner the mugs just fess up the better, dragging it out will just ramp up their sentences for being unco-operative.
It sounded like the charge wasn't just uploading it, it was "uploading it and encouraging people to use it for serious crime". I'd imagine one is a bit more harsh on the penalty side than the other, and I didn't get the impression they were uploading stuff for actual crime reasons rather than stupidity.
If they said "lol u can brake into NSA with this", that probably falls under the definition of "encouraging...a serious crime". Considering they were apparently engaged in the commission of such a crime themselves, to fall under the "encouraging" languge, wouldn't they have just needed to upload what they were getting and tell others to do the same?
Guess it depends on the meaning. I took it more along the lines of "you were uploading hacked account details and encouraging people to use them to steal" (which pretty much is what happened - can't remember if they were encouraging it but I very much suspect that they did). Oh well, if the punishment for that one is bad, denying it and being found guilty will only make it worse :)
...they got busted by the feds! Were they playing with their 'Fisher Price let's play hackers playset' and it got out of hand? You suck at being l337, my pet hamster has better hacking skillz and is more l337 than you two, and he runs around in a wheel all day stuffing his cheeks with his own shit!
Anon in case you also own hamsters who might hack me and upload "those photos" - and you probably do have hamsters considering your age!
Enough skills to do some hacking and what do they do with it? Instead of breaking up a child pr0n ring or something useful they go and attack the authorities. Way to go.
I'd convict them to 10 years using an old 80286 with MSDOS 3.20, with an AZERTY keyboard and the keyboard driver stuck on Swiss German, a 1200/75 baud modem with which they can only access the Scientology site and the order to enter War and Peace using nothing but EDLIN. If that seems unusually harsh, keep in mind I could have stipulated "copy con WARPIECE.TXT".
