A 17-year-old Massachusetts kid has pleaded guilty for hacking into hotel heiress Paris Hilton's cell phone and distributing the racy contents of the device all over the Internet earlier this year. The same kid admitted to me in March that he was one of the primary hackers involved in breaking into data aggregator LexisNexis and accessing personal records on more than 300,000 computers.

According to the Justice Department, the youth also pleaded guilty to hacking into a major wireless carrier in order to provide free cell-phone service for his buddies. When the wireless provider learned of the fraudulent accounts and shut them off, the teen launched a digital assault on the company, temporarily knocking out most of its Web site properties.
