LulzSec Sony Pictures hacker jailed, cops huge fine
A 21-year-old man has become the second US member of now-disbanded hacker group LulzSec to be sentenced for an attack on Sony Pictures.
Raynaldo Rivera, whose alias is “neuron," pleaded guilty in October 2012 to the attack. He was sentenced last week to 366 days by US District Judge John Kronstadt, according to federal prosecutors in Los Angeles.
Prison time is only part of the punishment. Following his time in lockup, Rivera faces 13 months of house arrest and 1000 hours of community service, on top of paying more than $605,000 in restitution. According to prosecutors, LulzSec's goal in the attack was to see the “raw, uninterrupted, chaotic thrill of entertainment and anarchy."
