400,000 Optus Dail-up Internet Accounts Hacked


After a six-month investigation a Sydney Australia man has been charged for hacking the accounts of more than 400,000 Optus customers.

Detectives from the Computer Crimes Unit raided the man's home seizing computer equipment that he allegedly used to access 435,000 user names and passwords belonging to customers of Optus' dial-up Internet connection.

The unnamed man was charged with unauthorized modification of data with intent to cause impairment to a computer.

This is CRACKING not HACKING. ::Sighs:: Idiots.. Can't even get their terms correct. It seems like half the population thinks that logging into someone else's account is hacking, or starting microsoft word is hacking. Just goes to show the stupidity of the masses.
