Hacker Who Crippled Xbox Live Convicted of 50,700 Counts, Dodges Prison

The devious, brazen Finnish hacker who ruined Christmas ‘14 just got the book thrown at him in his homeland’s court: 17-year-old Julius Kivimaki was sentenced today to a two-year suspended sentence.

Finland’s Kaleva.fi reports Kivimaki, who not only took responsibility for wrecking Sony and Microsoft’s online gaming networks with the briefly notorious “Lizard Squad” hackers but went on TV to brag about it, will probably avoid prison time altogether—assuming he stays out of trouble. Kivimaki was also found guilty of crimes related to credit card fraud and harassment.
