You never saw The Sting? When _clever_ people become criminals, few are safe from a concerted attack.

What an absolute idiot.

This guy has videos on his Youtube account showing off his botnet. He also has admitted in another video that he is 15.

Im waiting for the FBI to arrive at his house now that his information is known. What has he gained from this? Not a sausage. Not even fame..

On the plus side

He will be convicted as a minor and will hopefully learn from his stupidity before it is too late.

"Not even fame"

No, but he will have infamy.

Oh for gods' sakes...

What was the point in this? It's not like this retarded pukepot actually achieved anything glorious.

Nowadays it's just not impressive to 'hack' (ie bullshit) your way into someone else's account or system. It's tiresome and boring, and just like Toulouse's tweet said... 'sigh'.

Congratulations - you read someone's emails. Whoopee-do. How about you get enough of a life to not try to steal and scum your way through until you die alone and remembered only that you didn't shower enough and everyone you thought were impressed by you actually looked upon you with a kind of pitying loathing.

Anyone has an alternative link to view the video ? It seems to have been removed by YouTube.
