Cody Kretsinger aka Recursion from Lulzsec has been sentenced to one year in jail for his part in hacking Sony Pictures in July 2011, here is a quote from the source:
A 25-year-old man known online as Recursion has been sentenced to a year in jail for hacking Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Cody Kretsinger pleaded guilty last April, and admitted being part of an infamous hacking group known as Lulzsec.
After his jail term, Kretsinger will be required to do 1,000 hours of community service, a Los Angeles judge ruled.
Sony said the hack caused more than $600,000 (£392,000) in damage.
Not to be confused with the attack on Sony’s PlayStation Network, the Sony Pictures hack in July 2011 involved breaching the company’s website and accessing a database of customers’ names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses.
Around 50,000 of the names were later posted online.
Kretsinger pleaded guilty to counts of conspiracy and unauthorised impairment of a protected computer.
Prosecutors declined to say if Kretsinger was also co-operating with authorities in exchange for leniency.
Now that’s the news over, now for something a little personal, if you don’t want to read it, then don’t.
Now you are probably asking why CNET are mentioned in the title, well its because when the story broke by BBC, that Lulzsec had pleaded guilty, stussy1 posted an article here that said:
PSN hackers plead guilty in UK court
I read the article and followed the link which lead to CNET, who for some stupid reason decided to claim that Lulzsec were the PSN hackers:
Now after reading all the article regarding Lulzsec and the hacks they did, i couldn’t see anything nor had i even seen anything about them hacking PSN, so i made a post asking where they got the PSN information from, which was seven days ago:
The genius author of the article this far has been incapable of replying or fixing the article, now you are probably asking why i should care, well its because i hate people being fed false stories, it has led many people to wrongly assume that Lulzsec are the PSN hackers, including a certain CrunchTard site, now i hope with this article, people can see and understand that there is no proof, nor evidence that Lulzsec had any part in the PSN attack, nor have they admitted any part in it, so until they admit any part in it, or there is evidence to prove they did it, they are innocent of any involvement in the PSN attack.
News sites, do some research and learn how to read, educate yourselves on the difference between right from wrong, most of you main stream media idiots get paid for writing, so write properly and truly, yeah it was a rant, don’t like it ? sue meTweet this!
