Subject: 'Mafiaboy' Gets 8 Months

For those that remember the large DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks we had last year against some rather large web-sites (CNN, Yahoo, Ebay, Amazon and others), the 17-year-old Canadian, a.k.a. Mafiaboy, has been sentenced to 8 months in a youth detention center. Here's a snip:

Until the end of his probation, the teen is also prohibited from associating with "hacker/cracker" groups or visiting Web sites, chat rooms or message boards related to those topics. And if Mafiaboy does get back on the Internet again, he will have to tell the RCMP which Internet service providers he uses.
