Hacker out of prison
Really ??



AP Article





Chicago (AP) — Computer hacker Jeremy Hammond, who is serving a 10-year prison sentence for breaking into computer systems of security firms and law-enforcement agencies, will serve out the remainder of his term in a Chicago halfway house, a U.S. Bureau of Prison spokesman said Wednesday.

Hammond, who has gained mythic status among his supporters, was released Tuesday from the Memphis Federal Correctional Institution in Tennessee to community confinement, said Bureau of Prisons spokesman Emery Nelson. Citing privacy and security reasons, Nelson refused to release information on the conditions of Hammond’s confinement. He is scheduled for release in March.

The FBI arrested Hammond, who prosecutors called a hacking “recidivist,” during a 2012 raid on his Chicago home after getting the cooperation of Hector Xavier Monsegur, a hacker who helped law enforcement infiltrate the hacking movement ”Anonymous,” which led to the conviction of eight hackers.

The raid came after Hammond penetrated the Texas-based security think tank Strategic Forecasting Inc., known as Stratfor. The company’s clients include the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Defense Department. He was also accused of hacking the FBI’s Virtual Academy, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association, and the Jefferson County, Alabama, Sheriff’s Office.

He’d been working with a subgroup of “Anonymous” to disrupt the networks of Sony Pictures, the Public Broadcasting Service, the Arizona Department of Public Safety and others when a member of the group enlisted him to help break into Stratfor’s systems.

The hackers posted emails between Stratfor employees and clients on the WikiLeaks website, along with credit card data from a client list that included Northrop Grumman, the Marine Corps and Time Warner Cable. They used some of the credit card numbers to donate money to the Red Cross, according to court records.

Federal prosecutors alleged the Stratfor hack resulted in more than a million dollars in losses to individuals and threatened public safety.

Hammond argued during his sentencing the hacks were civil disobedience to expose the pervasiveness of government and private surveillance.

During a 2014 interview with The Associated Press, Hammond laughed at the idea that some consider such attacks as threatening to national security as terrorism.

“I mean, I didn’t kill anybody,” he said.

Hammond last year was summoned to testify to a federal grand jury in Virginia. He was found guilty of civil contempt after he refused to testify.

Raised in the Chicago suburb of Glendale Heights, Hammond described himself as a :nonconformist, anti-authority” kid who at 8, tried to design video games. A few years later, he started hacking.

He started the University of Illinois at Chicago with a full scholarship, but was kicked out after hacking into the university’s computer science department website and telling administrators about the vulnerability.

Over the years, his supporters have elevated him to near-mythical status on the internet and have sold buttons, t-shirts and other merchandise bearing his name and picture. In a Tuesday tweet, the Jeremy Hammond Support Committee expressed joy that Hammond had been released from prison.

What's your specific issue? He did all of his time, 4 months of halfway house and he's free in March. There's no gain time in the feds, it's day for day. The halfway house will make sure he's gainfully employed and drug free those 4 months. If not, back to prison until March. Or is it his cult status? If that, he's no Ross UUlbricht.

re: Hacker out of prison
Yes, I guess I do have an issue with smart arse little computer hackers.

String up a few and dozen and see if it slows down the rest.



“I mean, I didn’t kill anybody,” he said.

What a smug little a-hole.

" Writing after his arrest, Hammond said, "I have always made it clear that I am an anarchist-communist – as in I believe we need to abolish capitalism and the state in its entirety to realize a free, egalitarian society. I'm not into watering down or selling out the message or making it more marketable for the masses."


$700,000 in fraudulent charges and 60,000 compromised credit card numbers.

Tee hee its so funny for the innocent little hacker.

DAMN !

I know people who've embezzled way more and got fractions of the time behind bars. And weird flex to call a guy just getting out on a 10 year sentence innocent.

re: Hacker out of prison
How many people do you know who have embezzled lore than 700k and gotten less time? People implies multiple so you running woth the wrong crowd. Also his is federal charges not local or state which is probably the embezzlement charges. Oh a F*** a thief

I know I've met Charles Keating, via swimming with his grandkids... and we can add a lot of 0s to that 700k figure. Oh yeah, he only did like 4.5 years. But he isn't the only one, just the best example of people stealing way more and getting way less prison time.

It may, but I certainly don't let it be what dictates my position in this discussion.

Which is, you worship a Communist hacker. Not exactly Robin Hood.

Hammond frequently identifies as an anarchist and has a shoulder tattoo of the anarchy symbol with the words: "Freedom, equality, anarchy." Writing after his arrest, Hammond said, "I have always made it clear that I am an anarchist-communist – as in I believe we need to abolish capitalism and the state in its entirety to realize a free, egalitarian society.


I'm not into watering down or selling out the message or making it more marketable for the masses."

In a statement following the hearing in 2013 at which Hammond was sentenced to 2013, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said, "While he billed himself as fighting for an anarchist cause, in reality, Jeremy Hammond caused personal and financial chaos for individuals whose identities and money he took and for companies whose businesses he decided he didn't like.


Yeah MoarCommunistHackers !

What fricking planet are you on? Because I've repeatedly disagreed with your retarded takes, I worship this guy? Since I don't agree with you, i must be the polar opposite. That's fricking simple minded af. It's almost like I didn't compare him to another famous computer criminal in my original reply... directly asserting him as lesser than Ross Ulbricht.

You've convinced me of that. I don't see this thief, that stole 60,000 credit card infos as a hero. Robin Hood he aint. People's lives were ruined . I suppose it is sad though that this anarchist-communist didnt get out in time to join in some overthrowing the US government type "peaceful protests".

We disagree, lets let it go. My emotions ( hated of this a-hole and those like him ) probabably did get the best of me. I admit it.

Have a grand Thanksgiving.
