Dmitri Androsov, a student of Chelyabinsk, Russia, became the most famous Russian hacker of the last week due to 16 thousand of indecent phrases that he sent using home computer to "Megafon" mobile network subscribers.

A Chelyabinsk regional court brought in a verdict of guilty according to article 273, part 1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation "Creation, using and spreading of malicious computer programs" and sentenced him to one year of probation and three thousand roubles fee (about $100). Therefore, a 12-year-old computer man, Androsov has entered a history of Russian justice as the first prosecuted spammer.

Last year Dmitri found a weak spot in the system of SMS messages distribution of "Ural GSM" (Chelyabinsk branch of Megafon) on the website of the company. It was an interesting opening but he didn't hurry up to use the opportunity to throw sand in the wheels of the company. The time turned: a mobile communication's operator miscounted Dmitri when he paid for mobile services. The student decided to solve an unpleasant situation on his own and he took the virtual warpath with the company on May 23, 2003.

For 2 hours and 16 minutes he sent 11,261 of indecent messages to "Ural GSM" customers on behalf of "Megafon". In a day he abused 3887 more people using SMS.

"Obscene language" attack incurred an emergency situation in the network of "Ural GSM", also blocking of computer information: all customers were unable to receive and send SMS messages.

Mobile services providers turned to police and the swearer was nabbed.
