Reuters editor accused of aiding numerous Anonymous hacks
SACRAMENTO, CALIF: Oops, Reuters did it (for the first time, hopefully not again). According to the Los Angeles Times, a social media editor is in hot-water tonight after he apparently decided to be a cool-cat and help Anonymous hack, a former employer. Matthew Keys, 26, reportedly helped Anonymous hack servers owned by the Tribune Co.
Keys handed off log-in information to Anonymous, according to documents. Federal prosecutors in the case are pushing to land Keys in prison for up to 10 years, with a hefty fine of $750,000.
