Weev Sentenced to
41 Months in Prison

March 18, 2013 | Samer Kalaf

Hacker Andrew Auernheimer, a.k.a. “Weev,” was sentenced to 41 months in prison today for his role in accessing AT&T’s website and aggregating email addresses and data from around 100,000 iPad users, then publicizing the hole in AT&T’s security system.

The last tweet Auernheimer sent before being sentenced was an apparent display of indifference.

This kind of result for Auernheimer does not bode well for Matthew Keys, a deputy social media editor for Reuters who was recently indicted for aiding hackers.
