Amazing! I wonder if the true cost of all that hacking was ever calculated.

Hector Xavier Monsegur - known as "Sabu" - was arrested in 2011 on hacking charges.
He had faced a lengthy term, but instead agreed to work with US authorities to identify other hacking suspects.
The FBI said Monsegur had stopped more than 300 hacking attacks.LulzSec Hacker Gets Off With Light Sentence For Helping Thwart Further Attacks [bbc.co.uk]
