Australian Red rooster hacker let off with community service

Scott Evan McCormick

23yo Scott Evan McCormick was sentenced today to 150hours community service after getting into his ex works system by means of a user name and password he obtained. Whilst in the red rooster stores computer system scoot order 67k worth of chicks from 5 suppliers, it was only when one called the store up to double check such a large order that it became apparent they had been compromised. The amount of chick he order would of been more then a small chick warehouse holds. A lot of papers are classing this as hacking, but in all sense its just smart thinking. As time goes on we see more and more revenge taken out by means of technology, 20years ago Scott would of just throw a brick through the windows or defaced the building some how. regards lee
