Hilton teen hacker jailed

A Massachusetts teen who admitted to accessing T-Mobile USA's internal systems and posting data from Paris Hilton's cell phone on the Web will serve 11 months in a juvenile facility.

The teenager pleaded guilty last week to a series of hacking incidents, the theft of personal information and making bomb threats to high schools in Florida and Massachusetts, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney for the district of Massachusetts.

All crimes took place over a 15-month period, beginning in March 2004. Victims suffered a total of about $1 million in damages, according to the statement.

One of the crimes involves gaining unauthorized access to internal T-Mobile USA systems in January this year, a representative of the wireless carrier, a subsidiary of T-Mobile, said Wednesday.

The perpetrator's name is not being disclosed because he is a juvenile.

The young man was sentenced to 11 months of detention in a juvenile facility, to be followed by two years of supervised release. During the entire period, he is barred from owning or using a PC, cell phone or any other device that can access the Internet, according to the statement, reports ZDNet.

According to Boston News, Prosecutors said the teenager's first crime was committed in March 2004, when he e-mailed a bomb threat to a Florida school. The school was closed for two days while officials investigated and ruled the threat a hoax.

In January, the teenager hacked into T-Mobile's computer system and looked up account information of its customers, including Hilton.

This spring, he arranged "with one or more associates" to make a bomb threat to a Massachusetts school, prosecutors said. They said an investigation of the teen's associates is continuing.

Hilton, a hotel chain heiress whose sex tape with an ex-boyfriend became a cyberspace novelty, stars on the Fox TV reality show "The Simple Life."
