Hacker Gets His

An Ohio man is sentenced to six years in federal prison for cyberattacks that disrupted websites of various government entities, including the city of Akron, the Ohio Department of Public Safety and a number of federal agencies. The sentence handed down to James Robinson, of Akron, includes an order to pay $668,000 in restitution for costs that agencies incurred to protect themselves from future attacks. Federal prosecutors say Robinson’s denial-of-service attacks overwhelmed websites with traffic, making them unavailable to users.
