TWO ANONYMOUS HACKERS JAILED FOR PAYPAL AND VISA HACKING

Written By Dipanshu Garg on Sunday, 21 April 2013 | 09:55


Christopher Weatherhead, a 22-year-old student and Ashley Rhodes, 28 were jailed by a London court Thursday for a series of cyber-attacks by the hacking group Anonymous that cost the U.S. online payments giant PayPal millions of dollars. PayPal was repeatedly attacked in December 2010 after the website decided not to process payments made to the Wau Holland Foundation, an organization involved in raising funds for WikiLeaks. During Weatherhead trial, prosecutors said the attack had cost the company 3.5 million pounds ($5.5 million) in loss of trading as well as software and hardware updates to fend off similar attacks.
