Illustration for article titled Lizard Squad Member Found Guilty Of 50,700 Charges Of Computer Crime

A member of Lizard Squad, the group responsible for numerous attacks on gaming sites and platforms over the past year, has been found guilty in Finland of a comical 50,700 charges “related to computer crimes”. And yet he won’t be going to prison.

The Daily Dot reports that Julius “zeekill” Kivimaki, who is only 17, has instead been given a two-year suspended sentence, as well as being “ordered to fight against cybercrime”. So yeah, that actually happens in real life!


That’s not bad, considering Kivimaki was involved in the major attacks on both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network last year which crippled services and frustrated millions of customers. The charges against Kivimaki, however, did not involve those attacks.
