WARSAW: A 22-year-old computer hacker received a one-year suspended
jail term on Wednesday in one of Poland's first ever computer
crime-related conviction, the PAP news agency reported. A court in
the southern Polish city of Cracow found the hacker, identified only
as Andrzej G., guilty of breaking into the system of a local business
and destroying files worth US$1,000 (RM3,800).
The cyber assailant maintained his innocence throughout the trial, but
court officials said they had no doubt he had used a pirate program
found on his computer to break into the firm's network.
In a move to prevent any future misadventures in cyberspace, the court
also ruled to confiscate the hacker's hard drive. The verdict is
subject to appeal.
