So he;

1: fixed the security hole on affected devices - public service, good for him

2: sent clicks to his own ad to steal pennies from ad slingers - meh

3: set about collecting credentials & creating a botnet - slapped wrist time, if he'd stayed with just the clicks he'd have probably been ok doing this for years.

As for >>> Italian police were acting under the instruction of US police when they raided his house and so should have followed American standards for search<<< that'd be laughed out of court in any country, would he have used that argument if a country that allows confessions under torture had made the request?
