Hacker gets 41 months in the slammer for stealing personal data of 100,000 AT&T Apple iPad customers
a flaw in the website used by AT&T to sign up customers for 3G service for the Apple iPad. Before his sentencing, he held a impromptu press conference at the courthouse steps and said, "I'm going to jail for doing arithmetic." He also spent his last hours of freedom, at least for now, answering a Reddit aMa where he was greeted with a hostile reaction. "Everybody who thinks weev is some kind of hero is getting played by a sadistic sociopath who has spent most of his adult life anonymously inflicting misery on people as entertainment," said one person. Others cited the fact that he did not break into a private server to protest the sentence.
Aurenheimer will appeal his conviction and vowed not to let AT&T off so easily next time.
