A federal judge sentenced a Pleasant Hill man known as one of the most notorious hackers on the Internet to four months in prison Friday for breaking into federal government computers three years ago and defacing Web sites.

Robert Lyttle, 21, who is known as one half of "The Deceptive Duo," pleaded guilty March 11 to five computer-hacking counts for illegally accessing the systems of the Department of Defense's Defense Logistics Information Service, the Office of Health Affairs and the NASA Ames Research Center.

His illegal online activities caused $71,181 in damage, which he must pay in restitution, U.S. District Judge D. Lowell Jensen ordered Friday at a hearing in Oakland. The judge also sentenced Lyttle to four months of home detention under electronic monitoring. He will begin serving his sentence on Aug. 24.

Crazy, makes you wonder how they get into DD/NASA. I believe they should be awarded, since if they can get in they found flaws in the system they hacked, which would be doing them a favour...

Well, put it this way; if a fellow country man gets in, would it not be better than a Korean being in the US space/defence systems? That way the secrets stay on own soil, lol...
