Hacker Jacob Appelbaum to Testify at Pirate Bay Founder Appeal

Something tells me that, in the eyes of the law, the testimony of a high profile notorious hacker isn't going to help another hacker overturn a hacking conviction.

One of the world’s most famous hackers will give testimony next week on behalf of Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Svartholm. Tor developer and former Wikileaks spokesman Jacob Appelbaum, previously described as "the most dangerous man in cyberspace" and recently linked to an Edward Snowden interview, will be attempting to add weight to claims that third parties carried out the hack attacks that Svartholm was jailed for earlier this year.
