Weev the hacker is on trial...

Anybody aware of this situation?

Any conclusions?

My nutshell comparison is this: We have to defend the neo-nazi's right to march in Skokie, but we shouldn't think of them as heroes.

I haven't followed it, but did a quick search after your post. My take on these guys has always been this; what a huge waste of talent. We need people with these skills doing white-hat work and preparing to defend us against the Chinese government hackers, not wasting time harvesting email addresses for bragging rights. There is a right way and a wrong way to do penetration and vulnerability testing. The right way benefits everyone, the wrong way only benefits the hacker.

IMHO, this guy is a complete loser.
