Pirate Bay co-founder sentenced for hacking CSC servers

2014-10-31 18:30
Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid Svartholm Warg has been found guilty of hacking into the mainframe of CSC, a company tasked with keeping and handling sensitive information belonging to the Danish police, and exfiltrating data, and of accessing the Schengen Information System.

He has been sentenced to three and a half years in prison.

Warg and his 21-year-old Danish accomplice of whom only the initials are known have been both found guilty by a Danish court.

Their fate laid in the hands of six jurors, and only two of them believed the pair's lawyers, who claimed that the computer that was used to perform the attack and exfiltrate the data could have been hijacked by someone via remote control software and misused to mount the attack.

The Dane has been sentenced to time served (17 months).

This is not the first sentencing for Warg.

After serving his one-year sentence in regard to the operation of The Pirate Bay, he failed to appear in a Swedish court in late 2011 for separate hacking charges, and the judge ordered his arrest.

Warg was arrested in Cambodia, and deported to Sweden, where he was charged for hacking Swedish IT company Logica and Nordea bank.

He was found guilty and sentenced to two years in prison for the first offence, but the judge decided that he can be extradited to Denmark to face these latest charges.
