A few hundred years of jail for a hacker from Turkey

Not far from the first time we hear that a hacker was sentenced for his deeds, but this time the sentence passed could enter the Guinness Book of Records, had a section for sentencing.

Although many countries hackers are sentenced to relatively short periods of time because the legislation is not very well developed for such illegal acts, a Turkish hacker has just been sentenced to 334 years. It is worth noting that this is far from a clerical error. Simply, the individual’s sentence at the end of the trial had a total of several hundred years.

It is a Turkish hacker, Onur Kopcak aged 26 years. Initially he was sentenced to a significantly milder sentence of 199 years in prison for phishing. Basically, created clones of sites of banks to steal financial data from victims who fell score. The value reached 199 years after the 43 victims filed a lawsuit against him. Unfortunately, before the definitive sentence, another 11 bank customers affected by attacks came before the judge, leading the sentence to 334 years.

In such circumstances, you may be tempted to think that Onur Kopcak will bring a call for the reduction of detention absurd. It appears that it will not make such a gesture as it seems a waste of energy in the context of Turkish legislation defective. In a statement to Today’s Zaman ,, hacker said the ultimate goal for prison sentences of Astronomy is a mystery. I never deserved the sentence, but I will not appeal because there is no alternative in the current legislation. ”

As a reference, the highest sentence for hacking US was received in 2010. That hacker Albert Gonzalez was sentenced to 20 years in prison after making the largest credit card theft in history.
