Computer hacker jailed for attacking websites of airport and hospital

ITV reports:

A homeless computer hacker calling himself His Royal Gingerness has been jailed for attacking the websites of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Norwich International Airport.

The actions of Daniel Devereux, 30, cost Norwich International Airport between £30,000 and £40,000, and caused the website of the hospital to be taken down for a day, Norwich Magistrates’ Court heard.

Devereux admitted two counts of unauthorised access under the Computer MisuseAct and was sentenced to 32 weeks in prison.
