Sentencing hearing told Mafiaboy intended to cripple sites

Author: JT Smith

From CBC: "A sentencing hearing is ongoing for
16-year-old Mafiaboy - the computer hacker who
launched denial of service attacks on several prominent
Web sites last year.

Wednesday, the court heard from witnesses who said
the youth's intent could only have been to bring down
the sites. The defence had argued Mafiaboy only
wanted to test the security of the sites."
