Celebrity Hacker Will Go To Jail For 10 Years

Almost everyone has had the experience of being "hacked."  Some hackers try to obtain information which will allow them to steal money, some hackers invade another person's privacy in order to use his/her email for spam and other hackers want to harm innocent people.

In the following story we see that a hacker who broke into the email accounts of various celebrities will go to jail for 10 years.

1)  If this had happened to a non-celebrity, do you think this hacker would be going to jail?
2)  Do you believe there should be severe penalties for hacking?

3)  Why do you think this penalty was so severe? Do you think the judge was trying to deter others from hacking?
4)  What type of person do you think the typical hacker is?

5)  Some comments on some sites containing this story blamed the women for having naked photos on their computers.  Do you think this is na legitimate argument or do you think these people are blaming the victims?
6)  Why do you think people become hackers?
7)  Do you think that hackers will learn a lesson fron this and stop hacking, or will it be necessary for more hackers to be thrown in jail?


Yes, I'm the guy who caused the "scandal" in Asia two years ago :P

Yes, I'm also the guy who wrote the very funny ESL book: New York City Sucks, But You'll Wanna Live Here Anyway
