If You Want To Email-Bomb Your Ex-Employer In The UK, You Should Do It Soon
from the before-it's-illegal-and-all dept
Apparently a UK teenager who email-bombed his ex-employer has been cleared of all charges, after it turns out that he didn’t actually break the law he was charged under. Yup, it turns out that under the UK’s Computer Misuse Act, denial of service attacks aren’t really a crime — something politicians are hoping to change. So, the kid only needed to prove that his email bomb wasn’t “unauthorized access” and he gets off free.
