    Her wetware does indeed match her software.
  • "Ostensibly they could have locked him up for three years straight and then released him on juvenile parole," Jay Leiderman, a Los Angeles attorney who has represented alleged members of Anonymous and LulzSec, told Wired. "But to keep someone off the Internet for six years - that one term seems unduly harsh. You're talking about a really bright, gifted kid in terms of all things Internet. And at some point after getting on the right path he could do some really good things. I feel that monitored Internet access for six years is a bit on the hefty side. It could sideline his whole life-his career path, his art, his skills. At some level it's like taking away Mozart's piano."

    He then added,

    At no level did Mozart use a piano to rob people.

    Oh please, artists rob people of money every day.

    No no no. You forget. A truly great leader takes everyone with talent. A truly great leader is both the hammer and the anvil, and will MAKE people useful. The kid is smart, the kid has instincts. You can shun him, or you can use him for your own devices. Rest assured. SOMEONE will use him. Right now he was just doing things for the lulz. Why not pay him a ton of money and stick him in the NSA? That's what I'd do.

  • no applause for illegal activity but i admire the IQ and mad skills. i find computers and the internet to be humbling. no matter how much you know there is so much more to know. on TV & movies all sorts of people are just mad genius with 'puters. these people don't exist in my life.
  • As much as I agree the Mozart quote was ass-hattery, 6 years is crazy. Especially today, the net being as important as it is for every aspect of life. This kid is just being made example of really. In stead of rounding up all the hundreds of his little buddies.

    /now i have to watch hackers again. curse you people.

    Damn right. Can you imagine what the world would have missed out on if teenage Mozart's piano had been impounded after he used it in that bank heist?

    Then he would have two parents...twins?
  • FTFA: UG Nazi, which began as a politicized group that opposed SOPA, took down a bevy of websites this year, including those for NASDAQ, CIA.gov, and UFC.com. It redirected 4Chan's DNS to point to its own Twitter feed. Cosmo pioneered social-engineering techniques that allowed him to gain access to user accounts at Amazon, PayPal, and a slew of other companies.

  • If this kid was a truly good hacker he wouldn't be punished, he'd get hired by a security firm or the government.

    The alternative was several years in prison but he's being made an example of by being placed on probation for six years with supervised access to telecommunication devices.

    Got it.
