Hacker suspected for the Sony Entertainment Network Outage sentenced to house arrest

3 years of probation and must get a high-school equivalence certificate

By Grayshadow, Posted 16 May 2013

One to people suspected of helping crash Sony's online game servers worldwide in 2011, Todd M. Miller age 23, has been sentenced in federal court to a year of house arrest for "obstructing a federal investigation because he smashed his computers, halting an FBI investigation into his hacking."

According to U.S. District Judge Peter C. Economus said "Miller was part of the KCUF clan, a group of hackers who organized an attack on Sony's computer servers in San Diego in 2008 and beyond. After the FBI interviewed Miller in 2011, they returned with a search warrant and found that his hard drives were missing and he had smashed his computers." With a lack of evidence the FBI couldn't convict Miller of the hacking charges.

Miller could've been sentenced to prison and fined $250,000 but instead the judge sentenced him to 3 years of probation and get his high-school equivalence certificate.
