Imprisoned for Aiding Anonymous

Former Reuters journalist, Matthew Keys was convicted in 2015 for offering help to Anonymous – the internet hacking group. Keys was recently sentenced to 24 months in prison today for his actions. He was found guilty on Oct 2015 for violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. He provided login credentials to the Los Angeles Times newspaper. Initially, he faced a possible 25 years for 3 counts of hacking. The sentencing has become another grave example of how organisations view hacking and turn them from being misdemeanours into felonies. Keys will surrender on June 15th.
