15-Year-Old Arrested for Hacking 259 Companies

Somebody needs to get this kid a new hobby and I don’t mean watching reruns of War Games or Hackers videos. A 15-year-old student was caught after a three month spree where he breached 259 firms on the Internet. His spree ended only after his anonymizing software failed and his IP address was exposed.

The young man reportedly admitted to being responsible, saying that he was bored and wanted to prove himself.
