McKinnon might pay for holes he discovered.
The US inflated the $700,000 bill for damages it slapped on UFO hacker Gary McKinnon by stuffing it with costs incurred for patching the gaping holes the hacker had exposed in its computer security, according to a document filed with the Supreme Court.
Perhaps they should pay him for bringing the vulnerabilities to their attention?
But security experts in the US said McKinnon should be liable for the full $700,000 of security checks performed in his wake.

What about all that stuff he mentioned in the mid 1990s and was later mirrored on usenet archives... factor it all in as a whole.
What would be the costs then?
