    Phillies fanatic faces 471 years in hacking

    Federal officers have arrested a Philadelphia Phillies fan in California on charges of hacking into computers and sending thousands of spam e-mails to sports reporters at two newspapers.
    Allan Eric Carlson, 39, was arrested Tuesday by FBI agents at his home in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale and charged with hacking, spoofing return addresses, launching spam attacks, and stealing identities by using fake e-mail addresses, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Wednesday.

    He was released on $25,000 bail and ordered not to use the Internet, said Michael Levy, an assistant U.S. attorney in Philadelphia.

    Carlson faces up to 471 years in prison and $117.25 million in fines.

    Despite a competitive season, the Phillies failed to win a spot in Major League Baseball's championship playoffs. The spam messages were critical of Phillies management and the media, including one e-mail that had a subject line reading, "Corrupt Philly Media Keeps Phils in Cellar," according to the indictment.

    Carlson used fake return addresses, belonging to sports reporters at the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News, the indictment said.

    Many of spam messages bounced back to the reporters' e-mail accounts, crippling the servers where they were stored, according to the indictment.

    Nah, I think 800 to a 1,000 years is more like it. And, add in hot pokers to the soles of the feet once a day! Also, a session with a whip-weilding leather goddess once or twice a week ... yeah!

    Nihil....

    Sometimes the most fanatic of fans do not even live in the same state. It's kind of crazy. Plus players move around in free agencies so it's hard because sometimes their fans move allegience. Even more crazy.

    It's like, if you grew up in Manchester and moved to Dover, you would still be "United".

    Personal Ad:

    Whip Wielding Leather Godess needed for fun and frolic. Have money, will travel. Casual drinker unless confronted by WWLG or days that end in "Y".

    Lessee, judicial math. This charge gets this many years, that charge gets that many years. Tack 'em all together in a string and get ... 471!

    BTW, _the_ original, one and only LeatherGoddess left here a few years back and moved to England. Worked (works?) for Microsoft. Haven't heard from her in a while. Did hear from some Brits who felt the sting of her whip, though. She was very good!

    ;-)

    And, in your neck of the woods.
