AT&T Hacker Gets 41-Month Prison Sentence

In the latest criminal prosecution to alarm Internet activists, a security researcher who accessed a non-password protected portion of AT&T's Web site was sentenced to 41 months in prison and three years of supervised release. Andrew Auernheimer, who goes by the nickname "Weev" and was convicted by a federal jury last year of hacking, was sentenced by a federal judge in Newark, N.J.
