Hilton Hacker Halted

Its always good to hear when those who hack into and damage or expose private information are brought to justice. The 17 year old that was responsible for publishing information found on Paris Hilton's sidekick, along with several other similar offenses, was recently sentenced to 11 months in detention. Seems he gained access by breaking into the cell phone company's system, and in turn the ability to change passwords.

Part of his sentence was a 2 year ban on accessing the Internet. Teccdirt has some interesting commentary on what that ban might encompass, considering that almost everything is capable of connecting to the Internet these days.
