    Ehud Tannenbaum, who used the computer hacker nom de guerre "The
    Analyzer," will begin to serve his 18-month sentence Tuesday, after
    the High Court rejected his appeal against the punishment meted out by
    the Tel Aviv District Court.
    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
    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."
