Andrew “weev” Auernheimer, who was found guilty for his role in a 2010 security breach that exposed the information of 114,000 AT&T iPad users, has been sentenced to 41 months in prison. He is subject to three years of supervised release following his release from prison. He must also pay $73,162 in restitution to AT&T. Auernheimer was found guilty of one count of identity fraud and one count of conspiracy to access a computer without authorization. The hack exploited what was at the time relatively light security on the AT&T account login page for cellular iPads, and was addressed by a more aggressive sign-in system. [via The Verge]
