I think it's because we've become so good at hiding they're having a hard time tracking most people.

Sometimes intent is more important than what was actually done. I guess they should be happy you didn't create a tool for what you did or every script kiddie would be doing the same. Besides, you could've done a lot worse with the information you got, e.g. there was no extortion or money involved, again no malicious intent. I'm sure that counts for something. I hope they're going easy on you, getting caught like this being a security professional is punishment enough imho.

I also think its a matter of not getting on someone's radar. Should i have just dumped the database and did nothing with it, I probably wouldn't be here talking about this right now. If they got the capabilities to resolve your identity through the TOR network, imagine what else they can do..

It was just a stupid thing to hack social media accounts of journalists, get myself in the newspaper etc..of-course that will attract heat. Tomorrow is my first interrogation...i guess we will find out the consequences of a silly hacking spree soon enough...

This is indeed a really interesting story. I'm really curious to know what is happenning with your case.

Yeah same. I'm keeping to myself until the whole thing pans out and Wololo knows where he/she stands.

That's crazy. You just hacked a bunch of journalists for fun. Now your facing trials. That is fucked up.

Just curious, what did you do on the Twitter account that got you caught?
