A hacker who exposed private online accounts of the directors of the CIA and FBI, among others, in 2015 has been sentenced to five years in prison.
The Washington Post reports that 23-year-old Justin Liverman harassed leaders at the CIA and FBI and was a member of the “Crackas With Attitude” collective.
The accounts were breached by a British teenager impersonating officials. Liverman and a co-defendant harassed the victims with the exposed information.
The harassment included threatening and explicit phone messages.
Co-defendant Andrew Otto Boggs was sentenced to two years in prison, and the British teenager is being prosecuted in his country.
