An unemployed British sysadmin was yesterday indicted for what US authorities describe as the "biggest hack of military computers ever detected".

"This is an incredibly sophisticated cyber criminal," Newark U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie told Reuters. "He was a very busy guy."

Naw!
There is now way that he will serve 80 years.
He would have to live to be a hundred and sixteen years old to serve it.
Rats! he is going to get off light.
Maybe they should make him hang by this thumbs.

I would not be surprised to see this guy working for the Pentagon in a few years.
