Default LulzSec hacker gets a year in jail

A LulzSec hacker who admitted taking part in a computer breach of Sony Pictures Entertainment was sentenced to a year in prison, followed by home detention.

Cody Kretsinger, a LulzSec hacker who used the online moniker "Recursion," pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy and unauthorised impairment of a protected computer as part of a plea agreement.

Kretsinger, 25, was also ordered by a US district judge in Los Angeles to perform 1,000 hours of community service after his release from prison.

In an earlier hearing Kretsinger told a federal judge that he gained access to the Sony Pictures website and gave the information he found there to other members of LulzSec, who posted it on the group's website and Twitter.

Then he and other LulzSec hackers attacked the site and supposedly caused Sony more than $600,000 in damage.

According to Reuters, a 26-year-old British man pleaded guilty in that country to carrying out cyber attacks on targets including Sony and Nintendo as part of LulzSec while using the online persona of a 16-year-old girl named Kayla.
