20 Years in Jail for a Hacker Exposing US Targets to Isis

20 Years in Jail for a Hacker Exposing US Targets to Isis

Ardit Ferizi, 20, who helped Islamic State by providing the names of about 1,000 US government employees as potential targets, got 20 years in prison as a sentence. This was much higher than the 6-year term asked by defense lawyers. Those tried to convince the court that their client meant no real harm and wasn’t a true Isis supporter.

A native of Kosovo was arrested in 2015 in Malaysia and now became the first person convicted in the United States of both hacking and terrorism charges. Ferizi admitted hacking a private company and stealing the names and other personal details of next to 1,300 people with .gov and .mil addresses. After that, Isis published those names with a threat to attack.

The hacker struggled to explain at the sentencing hearing why he did it, saying that it all happened very quickly and confessing that he was very sorry for making people feel scared. At the same time, prosecutors claimed that he has indefinitely put the lives of 1,300 military members and government workers at risk and disputed the idea that his crime was a whim. It turned out that before passing over the names to the “Islamic State hacking division” in 2015, he ran a website devoted to propagating Isis propaganda. The prosecutors call the list a hitlist, aimed at finding these individuals and hitting them.

As a result, one of the victims with an easily identifiable name was now nervous when she interacted with Muslims, which she felt guilty about. In another terrorism case, the defendant allegedly used a similar hitlist to stake out the homes of two neighbors.

On the other hand, nobody on Ferizi’s list has actually been harmed, while much of the information he helped disseminate was publicly available anyway. He seems to have difficult life, nominally being raised as a Muslim. Ferizi was just 4 when Nato airstrikes forced Serbian forces to withdraw from the territory, which then became independent. His uncle was murdered and his father was kidnapped during the war. As a teenager, he got in trouble for hacking into Kosovar government databases, but at the time he avoided jail and went to Malaysia to study cybersecurity. However, Ferizi continued his hacking activities and reportedly developed worsening mental health problems. According to his lawyers, Ferizi met an Isis recruiter online while he was trying to expose online pedophiles.

No avatarThe methods of the hacking are more in question than the hacker. Seems more like a flaw(intentional) in the system. How do they allow themselves to get hacked, etc.

ReservoirDogs avatarI wanted to say that 20 years was not enough, but when i read "while he was trying to expose online pedophiles" I get mitigated because he tried to do something good for the society as well. But ... is it true? did he expose those pedophiles online?
