'Bill Gates' cracker escapes jail

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "A Welsh cracker whose "campaign" to expose the insecurity of ecommerce sites led
to an FBI investigation has escaped jail.

19 year-old Raphael Gray was sentenced to a psychiatric and community service
rehabilitation order of three years, in a hearing before Judge Gareth Davies at
Swansea Crown Court today.

Gray (whose handle is "Curador", or custodian in Welsh) obtained the credit card
details of thousands of people from sites with flakey security and published those
details on two sites, paid for with stolen credit card details."
