And on another note – I got to keep the products I “ordered” with the “glitches” I found. I also reported the issue, and the company (back then) was happy to let me keep the stuff because the way they saw it – the system let me “order” those products and took responsibility for making sure their technology…um...(a bit of sarcasm here)….”worked!”

 

Times have changed. Or rather, the news media has changed times.

Ross, I agree that he is being quite *foolish* (as one member said: feeding his ego) -- however, he does *not* deserve more jail time than a rapist (if that is true and I read that correctly). He caused no financial or personal harm. He exposed email addresses, not financial records. If that is a security issue, then by lord do we have a massive problem on the web because this has been going on for the 14 years I’ve been around nerds. ;p

 

By the way – I have exposed 3 vulnerabilities in my career. 2 to two major ecommerce sites. Surely glad these “cowboy” legal people weren’t around then.

oh he'll win on appeal but he's a dick and deserves what he's going through.

the only truth is in observation.

The ruling does violate the 8th Amendment- its worth appealing.

How many years in jail do people who scrape email addresses from a mailing list, and then subsequently spam those same addresses, get?

The larger problem is that far too many of our lawyers and our judges don't know enough about technology, yet they sit in judgment on cases involving the use and/or misuse of that technology. Something has to be done...
