Hilton Hacker Jailbound

The punk who hacked into Paris Hilton' account and posted the phone numbers and personal information of everyone listed on the internet has been sentenced to 11 months in juvy and 2 years of probation where he's prohibited from any device that can connect to the internet.

According to the court records, this was pretty much the least of his computer crimes. He had hacked into a number of other places as well. Before the usual whining hacker boys start complaining about how they're performing a public service by exposing security flaws, that's a bunch of hooey. He wasn't trying to perform any public service, and he didn't have any right to that information. He was using his computer knowledge to get his jollies off. Plain and simple. There is no defense for what he did.

He's 17-years old: certainly old enough to recognize the consequences of his actions, and as far as I'm concerned he should have been sentenced as an adult rather than as a juvenile.

He got off easy. Think about someone taking your information, posting all over the internet, and then having every moron on the planet start harassing your friends and family for no reason other than because they're losers who have nothing better to do with their lives. Everyone you know has to change their phone number and get security to protect themselves from stalker weirdos, and now they all have to think twice before giving you their new contact info. You get to decide what happens to this fool: you think 11 months vacation from high school is sufficient punishment for that kind of havoc being wreaked on your life?

I sure don't...
