Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Two hackers were jailed at Newcastle Crown Court today after admitting their role in creating a computer worm.

Andrew Harvey, 24, of Sherburn Village, Durham, and Jordan Bradley, 22, of Darlington, admitted to conspiracy to cause unauthorised modification of computers with intent, between December 31, 2001 and February 7, 2003, the Press Association reports.

Harvey was sentenced to six months, and Bradley to three months, according to PA.

They were part of a conspiracy which aimed to spread a computer worm worldwide. The court was told that while the worm did not cause widespread problems, it was capable of causing widespread disruption if the pair had wanted.®
