Tumwater Man Hacks Into Comcast Faces 5 Years In Jail

comcast Unlike the iPhone hacker that got offered a job as an App Developer by creating and spreading an iPhone virus, a Tumwater, Washington man is facing 5 years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000 for hacking into Comcast. He did this mostly for the fame and pride as shown by the page that he redirected the Comcast customers to. When customers tried to access their email and voicemail accounts, users were sent to a page that the hacker had created, bragging about his conquest. Sources say the hacker also tried to call Comcast to tell them about it and get some more fame, but the manager hung up on him.
