Don't Hack Air Force Systems

It does not pay to live in the US and compromise Air Force systems! From this article:

An 18-year-old hacker who breached computers at Sandia National Laboratories and posted an anti-Israeli message on the Eglin Air Force Base Web site was sentenced Thursday to a year and a day in federal prison.

Adil Yahya Zakaria Shakour also was ordered to pay $88,253 in restitution, and his computer use was restricted during the three years he will spend under supervised release after his prison term.

Shakour, a Pakistani national who lives in Los Angeles, pleaded guilty in March to computer and credit card fraud charges.
