British Hacker Loses Extradition Appeal; Faces Major Time
The Briton accused of the "biggest military hack of all time" against NASA and Pentagon networks a few years ago lost his appeal last week and will likely face trial in the United States.
Using a dial-up modem and software available to all computer users, Gary McKinnon, 43, accessed computer networks of the Air Force, Army, Navy, and Department of defense, along with NASA computers. McKinnon admitted to hacking into the U.S. military computer networks, attempted extradition for more than three years, with his case going as high as the European Court of Human Rights.
