Hacker Who Exposed Vulnerabilities on Prominent Websites Out on Bail

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 12, 2003

According to this AP article, the complaint against computer hacker Adrian Lamo included the charge that in 2002 he hacked into the New York Times intranet to access LexisNexis, which he used to incur several hundred thousand dollars in charges as he searched for press about, among other topics, himself. Lamo is today free on bail, with the terms, according to Reuters, “requiring him to live with his parents and restricting his computer use to such things as e-mail and job searches.” The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York continues to pursue the case prior to filing indictments.
