Four years ago, Andrew "Weev" Aurenheimer poked an easy hole in Apple's iPad security, exposed the information of 114,000 users, and embarrassed both that company and AT&T. He spent a year in prison before his sentence was tossed out, becoming a hacker hero in the process—and also, apparently, a neo-Nazi.
Internet troll Andrew "Weev" Aurenheimer currently sits in federal prison for using publicly accessible information on a public website to piss off the giant corporation that published the information. This is an injustice. But in a promising move, a legal team including one of the most respected cyberlaw experts in the country has just filed an appeal.
