Nancy Dillon reports that a 32-year old hacker who used the online names of “fame” and “infam0us” and was part of SwaggSec has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for his role in attacking DirecTV, Farmers Insurance and the Los Angeles Department of Public Works:
Mario Patrick Chuisano was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles and was ordered to pay $2,662,438.80 in restitution to the three victims.
Chuisano, 32, pleaded guilty in June 2014 to conspiracy to intentionally cause damage to a protected computer as well as possession of an unregistered sawed-off shotgun, authorities said.

The case was U.S.A. v. Mario Chuisano, 2:14-CR-00418-UA, in the Central District of California.
