Russian Pr0n Hacker Sentenced

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

In January 2010, Igor Blinnikov hacked into a billboard next to the Interior Ministry building in central Moscow and replaced the content with some pr0n.

He was arrested a month later and yesterday went on trial for the hack itself (he had previously been sentenced to five years imprisonment for allegedly selling 20 grams of weed found during the original arrest).

Prosecutors asked for a total of six years from which, according to Russian law, the current five year sentence he is serving must be subtracted and he was subsequently handed down the full sentence.
