Here in New Zealand a young guy got caught as part of a bot net network.
The judge let him off as "he had potential"
And he became a mini celebrity on tv news shows etc.
Pleased to see the US judges have the sense to be tough on this. It costs us all a fortune with internet security programs and our time fighting off attacks.
