This article is interesting not because the hacker is convicted, but because of the reader comments at the end. The first post defends the hacker and blames AT&T for their system not being secure enough and allowing a breach. The next poster says that is akin to blaming a bank if they are robbed because their doors are not secure enough. Another poster points out that both are to blame.

In our judicial system of criminal and civil liability I believe the third poster is most right. The hacker is guilty of a crime while AT&T will bear the civil liabilities. Here is the story:
