Hire a Hacker on Craiglist?
You can hire all sorts of people on Craigslist, and no doubt you can find people who aren’t exactly law-abiding.
But who in their right mind would openly advertise for a “genius hacker’ to break into the court’s computer system and wipe out their $16,000 in fines?
Zachary Landis, that’s who!
The Pennsylvania man posted his ad using Safe-mail.net. A cop responded to the ad, and Landis’ cover was soon blown.
The story doesn’t have a happy ending. Landis pleaded guilty to felony charges, including tampering with public records, unlawfully using a computer and computer trespass, and will spend two to four years in prison.
