Teen sentenced for hacking

Teen sentenced for hacking

A 17-year-old from Massachusetts pleaded guilty on Tuesday to breaking into Paris Hilton's cell phone. The youth was sentenced to 11 months detention in a juvenile facility. According to the Washington Post (free registration required), the youth also broke into a wireless Internet provider, AOL, and participated in an attack on the data warehouse LexisNexis earlier this year. I wrote in detail about this attack and described the youth's cohorts in a Security Watch column last May.
