    interesting that this much effort was wasted trying to find the kid who hacked the yahoo account.

    given this whole thing never would have happened if palen hadn't been conducting public business from an non-government computer.

    those emails should have been public information.

    the kids is a hero.

    :cool:

    donkeyshit! The kid is an obamatron, he did it just so he could say he did. Business had nothing to do with it. He is a criminal. and it's about time you stopped blaming the victim here... I guess you were opposed to the Patriot ACt too? DUmmie!

    He's neither a hero nor a hacker. It doesn't take a hacker to figure out the lame passwords and answers she assigned to her account.

    She is a moron, I'll give you that.

    I do too. What is the maximum?

    I hope the rest of us don't get the maximum penalty of having her as VP.

    .

    I think I read somewhere it was 5-10. I'll take ten.
    I hope she is. She deserves to be VP just because of all the donkeyshit she has waded through. I hope in Nov. she puts her wittle thumb right on the tip of her nose and waves at the press. Oh, the visual.

    The Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) (18 U.S.C. §§ 2510 et. seq., 2701–2710) was initially enacted to criminalize eavesdropping. In 1986 Congress updated this privacy legislation so that it was not limited to conduct involving traditional wires and electronic communications. The EPCA now covers all forms of digital communications.

    18 USC § 2314, prohibiting interstate transport of stolen, converted, or fraudulently obtained material; does apply to computer data files U.S. v. Riggs, 739 F.Supp. 414 (N.D.Ill 1990).

    Each count is a felony and carries a max. of 5 years. So this boy is in a lot of trouble, however, traditionally, kids like this don't get a big punishment, , I wil cite you an example.

    Riggs was first convicted in 1986 for his unauthorized use of a computer and was sentenced to a mere 15 days of community service and placed on probation for 18 months. 967 F.2d at 562. In 1990 Riggs was indicted again for making unauthorized access to computers, during which he stole proprietary information from a telephone company. This time he was sentenced to 21 months in prison, followed by two years of "supervised release" during which time he was forbidden to either own or use any computer for his personal use. Riggs was allowed to use computers in his employment, if supervised by someone. This sentence was upheld on appeal. 967 F.2d at 563.

    Since he's a politician's son, I'm guessing he'll get 6 months probation. If they keep digging, they might find that Yahoo was complicit, but I doubt that'll happen.
