Cybercrime: Spanish hacker jailed for sending out ex-manager's private emails

Date: August 10, 2008

A hacker has been jailed for two years in Spain for revealing hundreds of private emails written by a former colleague. The emails, which were taken from the former manager's work computer, divulged details of his sex life.

The hacker sent them to the manager's ex-wife, to a woman with whom he was having a relationship, and to the mayor of a council where he was working.

The emails were also copied on to other people who knew the victim.

A judge in Barcelona yesterday jailed the hacker, who was not named, for two years for an offence of "revealing secrets". He was also ordered to pay a fine of €3,240 (2,566) as well as €4,000 in compensation to the victim.
