eBay Hacker Jailed

Jerome Heckenkamp (a 25 year old Los Alamos National Laboratory computer specialist) was sentenced to eight months in jail after pleading guilty to two counts of hacking. He admitted to breaking into eBay's computers in 1999 and installing a program that captured username and passwords, which he later used.

He has to report to prison no later than July 11.

Hmmm... that's awfully nice of them to let him come to prison at his leisure. Maybe he has to finish up the lease on his apartment or something.
