Geoff the Duck BS: Protect the criminal - sod the victim. (44) RE: BS: Protect the criminal - sod the victim. 14 Dec 12


Actually - THERE IS NO VICTIM.
He is an individual with Aspergers, who was obsessed with the idea that the US government was covering up evidence of UFOs, so hacked into US computers to look for proof. Presumably he didn't find any.
He didn't do anything much beyond leaving some messages telling the computer administrators that their security was crap.
He wasn't in the pay of "Enemies of the State" and as far as I am aware had no interest in anything other than his UFO conspiracy. He never passed information to third parties and nobody has any idea what he might have read.
As a result of his hacking, the US Military had to get cyber-security holes patched, but if they had done a good job in the first place, he wouldn't have been able to get in.
Instead of trying to prosecute him, they would have been more sensible to enlist him in testing their networks.
Quack!
GtD.
