Teenage Cyber Hacker Jailed Being A Dumbass

Yes, I made up that headline but you and I both know that it is far more accurate than the actual headline. This guy is seriously lucky that being a douche isn't a crime. That's all I'm saying. 😜

A computer hacker has been jailed for two years for masterminding global online attacks as a teenager from his bedroom in Hertfordshire. Adam Mudd, now 20, admitted creating malware in 2013 which was used to carry out 1.7 million cyber attacks. Among the victims were gaming websites including Minecraft, Xbox Live and the fantasy game Runescape, the Old Bailey heard. Judge Michael Topolski said Mudd "knew full well this was not a game".
