43 years old “UFO eccentric” hacker Gary McKinnon just loses appeal against his extradition to the States for computer crimes he committed 7 years ago.
If you’ve lived under a rock during the last few years what this dude did was basically break into .gov computers looking for UFO related material.
Probably the last case of recreational hacking I’ve heard about.
So his case is obviously going to be a classical “Strike one to educate one hundred” kind of message to every hacker attacking american computer systems: we can reach you everywhere you live and have you extradited to our country where we will sentence you to life in prison.
Unless you are a multi millionaire cyber criminal living in Russia or a chinese spy, of course.
