Four years in chokey for Haxxor behind George W Bush NUDE SELFIES

This topic is closed for new posts.

"The Romanian taxi-driver-by-day-hacker-by-night who offended the world by publishing stolen nude self portraits of former US president George W Bush has been sentenced to four years jail."

The very story you linked to doesn't say anything about nude selfies, nor do any of the comments. It took me about one minute to read it.

I think he may have a point...

At least once a week I get a malware-loaded e-mail from the hacked account of one contact or another (usually hotmail or aol). This must translate into millions of hacked accounts every day. So far I've not heard of any investigations, let alone any prosecutions. Maybe the owners of the accounts aren't important enough?

You're assuming it's actually a compromised email and not just dodgy headers/spoofing?

Seven years in prison should be the minimum

Obviously this person is a career criminal and didn't learn from his prior conviction - very common of crims, especially digital crims who get a slap on the wrist for their offenses.

Yes, let's imprison the entirety of the NSA and GCHQ for 7 years.
