What do people get out of doing something like this besides just being a dick? Can you make money off this somehow?
So he was 18 and stupid when he did it? Punishment is too harsh
Most just do it because they are dicks.
You don't see millions of other 18 year olds doing this.
Well, I hope he receives a real punishment, but nothing too ridiculously harsh. A long parole stint would make sense. If he ends up in prison he shouldn't be there for any more than half a year or so. He is still just a dumb kid.
DDOS stuff was annoying crap when it happened. Bomb threats are no joke even if not real. Can’t wait to see the outcome of this.
I can see a dumb 9 year old thinking this was funny, but at 18 you’re an adult.
If it was only a small prank, then that’s one thing. To crash an entire online system twice and make a bomb threat to an airport? Fuck that. Hit his ass with the book.
Send the worthless little prick to prison. Send a message and teach him a lesson in consequences he clearly needs.
We Are Anonymous: Inside the Hacker World of LulzSec, Anonymous, and the Global Cyber Insurgency by Parmy Olson. It goes fairly in depth into their motivations and is a pretty good read.
Damn, that sucks. Poor guy.
So clearly 18 is old enough in terms of understanding basics of a moral society.
Treat him like an adult because he is one.
Causing $95,000 worth of damages and there are people who think the final punishment may be too harsh. Lol.
can't tell if he was involved with the bomb threat
nuking some Sony servers for 10 years tho. it's Sony, who cares
I guess he isn't lulz'ing anymore. Have fun in prison, bro!
His actions caused $95,000 in damages.
So...imprison him for 10 years. The average cost of imprisonment in the US is over $30,000, so there goes $300,000.
Also, $250,000 fine.
Potentially half a million dollars for $95K in damages.
There is no chance he gets the maximum sentence, But whatever he gets will be deserved.
If they didnt target gaming servers and tried to take down government or banking servers would anyone still think this is harsh.
It can also be used as a precedent in future cases, and hopefully deter others from trying to do the same shit because they think they can get away with it.
He should be fined for the damages caused and time in jail. Even though his actions say otherwise, he was 18, so should be tried like an adult. Hope they make an example out of him.
His name is DerpTrolling?
An example must be made of him, to deter future perpetrators. Maximum sentence
I can't sympathize, he caused a bomb threat, caused headaches to a lot of people, and around 18 I was actually thinking how I will eat tomorrow and continue with school.
Bomb threats and Swatting have the potential to get people hurt or killed and should be dealt with strictly.
He hasn't been sentenced, the article just said what the maximum sentencing was.
And no, being 18 ain't an excuse, YOU KNOW what you're doing.
Why are you downplaying this so much?
