    So this guy got six months community...

    ...and poor McKinnon is due to get the good news to the tune of 10 years, possibly wearing an orange jump suit in Gitmo.

    US authorities never sought Tenenbaum's extradition

    Huh? That's like Wales trying to extradite someone from Great Britain. Methinks your schoolbooks are a bit out of date.

    US or Canadian dollars?

    If it was Canadian I can see what the fuss is about, that's probably close to a million quid withdrawn. If it was US, why waste the money on tracking down nearly 2 quids worth of stolen funds? Surely the paper alone used to write these guys up cost more than the haul if it was US currency.

    More FUD

    If they do ever actually catch a proper hacker I'll eat my bits.

    I'm no expert but I bet I could run rings round these guys they're catching.

    I know some experts, their modus operandi appears to be to use about 5 compromised machines as hop-offs, they get in, get what they want and get out, no traces left. Or at least that's what they *used* to do. :o)

    One of these guys walks around tripwire like it isn't there.

    Re: Tam Lin and extradition

    Huh? What schoolbooks do you have? He was arrested in Israel, no extradition sought. This time he has been arrested in Canada. Now despite obviously close relations between the US and both those countries they scarcely compare to the principality of Wales trying to extradite someone from Great Britain.

    Paris cos maybe she thinks Canada is in the US too.

    Sometimes eugenics is called for

    The Anal-iser was always a no-talent assclown and vapid media whore to boot. Now we know he's a thief as well. What a moron. Castrate this man for the good of humanity.
