Talk about a double whammy.
A Belgian hacker who threw a Molotov cocktail just got his prison sentence extended because of a thumb drive he accidentally dropped during the attack.
Naked Security reported on what the investigators found:
The USB held evidence showing that the man, identified in court documents only as Brecht S., was a member of the hacker groups that brand themselves as Anonymous Belgium and Cyber Crew.
It also implicated the man in launching a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) against Crelan Bank that took it offline for hours, and that he extorted a pizza shop, DDoS-ing it several times until the pizzeria paid him to call off the attacks.
Investigators who searched Brecht’s devices and history reportedly found evidence that Brecht had participated in large-scale international cyber attacks, including attacks launched against the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA): the world soccer’s governing body.
Hacking a bank, a pizzeria, and FIFA? That guy dropped quite a resume from his pocket.
