Two years imprisonment for Zynga Poker hacker
Posted on March 24, 2011 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Ashley Mitchell had been widely known a few months ago when he managed to hack the site of Zynga Poker by stealing virtual chips worth of 400 billion from players of the popular network of online poker.
His action however didn’t remain unpunished. He was arrested and taken to court, which ruled on the punishment: Ashley will remain in prison for two years as punishment for his achievement.
Ashley is 29 years old and an avid player of Zynga Poker. He managed to access the company’s systems (the central servers of Zynga Poker) and transferred to his account chips from other network users. An amount of these chips – particularly the 1/3 of them – sold to others for 53,000 real British pounds.
The police investigation began when officials of Zynga Poker saw the loss of many poker chips from the accounts of their owners – and informed the authorities.
The Judge stated to Ashley: “The means by which you gained access to the site, despite the protection measures of the company, show extensive research and much persistence on your part. The time that you spent for this purpose seems to be much. The world is based on computer systems for their personal affairs on daily basis. Anyone who invades these systems for its own purposes should expect severe punishment.”
It should be noted that Ashley owns a gambling website which generates revenue that reaches a six digit figure.
