tsu doh nimh writes “Alan Ralsky, the 64 year-old dubbed the ‘Godfather of Spam,’ was sentenced to 51 months in prison on Monday, The Washington Post’s Security Fix reports. According to anti-spam group Spamhaus.org, Ralsky has been spamming since at least 1997, using dozens of aliases and tens of thousands of ‘zombies’ or hacked PCs to relay junk e-mail. Also sentenced — to 40 months in jail — was Ralsky’s 48-year-old son-in-law, Scott K. Bradley and two other men named last year in a 41-count indictment for wire fraud, mail fraud, money laundering and violations of the CAN-SPAM Act.” And eldavojohn writes “Nineteen year old Dmitriy Guzner, Anonymous member and Scientology DDoS attacker, received one year and one day in jail for his admitted crime. His sentence could have been a maximum ten years. According to the Church of Scientology, Anonymous has harassed and attacked them with ’8,139 threatening phone calls, 3.6 million e-mails, 141 million hits on its website, ten acts of vandalism against its property, 22 bomb threats, and eight death threats against Church leaders.’”
