Tannenbaum, a 23-year-old Hod Hasharon resident, was convicted of offenses of conspiracy, wrongful infiltration of computerized material, disruption of computer use, and destroying evidence, after he, together with several other hackers, conspired in 1997 and early 1998 to commit various offenses via the Internet. Tannenbaum obtained programs such as Trojan Horse, which facilitated illicit entry into classified computer systems; he also upgraded the programs. Tannenbaum admits that he used the Internet illegally to infiltrate computer systems operated by official American organizations, including the Defense Department, the Air Force and the Navy. In rejecting Tannenbaum's appeal, justice Shlomo Levine wrote that, "the severity with which the sentencing court viewed the crimes leaves no room for a higher court to interfere with the sentence." - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
