Smed calls out Lizard Squad e-thug convicted of 50,700 cybercrimes

The Finnish courts sentenced 17-year-old Lizard Squad member Julius “zeekill” Kivimaki today, but Daybreak‘s John Smedley isn’t having any of it. Convicted so far of a staggering 50,700 computer crimes to date with more on the way, the e-thug was given a virtual slap on the wrist in the form of a suspended sentence — that is, no prison time — and a parole mandate to “fight against cybercrime” and conduct his future internet activities under surveillance. The Daily Dot says he’s been convicted of “data breaches, felony payment fraud, telecommunication harassments, and other counts relat[ing] to fraud and violations of company secrets.” According to Smedley, Kivimaki has not yet been convicted for his role in the Christmastime DDoS attacks on the Xbox Live or Playstation networks.

Smed, whose American Airlines plane was diverted mid-flight after Kivimaki called in a bomb threat targeting the then-SOE president last August, has noted that today’s sentencing is unrelated to his own case, but he nevertheless unleashed his apparent anger in a series of messages on Twitter:

that was the piece of garbage that brought my plane down, leaked my information and did all kinds of other crap to me.

It’s important to note – he was convicted of crimes that had nothing to do YET with the PSN DDOS over Christmas (yes he was part of that)

and he still has 15 other criminal cases awaiting prosecution in Finland.

I may go after his parents in Civil court too. Little dirtbag

so stay tuned because @what_security – Here’s his Twitter address. He’s a sociopath and will get what’s coming to him.

what they won’t tell you is he did time in jail already and got his ass kicked hard inside. @what_security – tell us that story Julius.

The FBI nailed this guy literally immediately. It took the Finnish government a long time to catch up.

I got to talk to this dirtbag once when he called and pretended to be someone else.

I also got to listen to the entire conversation between him and American Airlines the day he called in the bomb threat.

His parents need to be held accountable for his actions in addition to his going to jail. @what_security – So I’m coming for you Julius.

this is just his first conviction which makes him a convicted dirtbag. Next time he won’t get suspended sentence.

GamePolitics notes Kivimaki has said he feels no guilt over his actions.

Hopefully they do more than beat him up a little the next time he’s in prison… Say what you want about Smed, but this kid is indeed a dangerous sociopath and needs to be taken out of the equation, not given a frigging job and more power.

Kanbe  He most likely got such a light and publically so sentence because behind closed doors he’s got a comfy deal to work for that government or another agency doing what he always does.

So this wrist slap earns him a top dollar gig working for some government agency and kicking back. Im sure he’ll remember Smed in his memoires fondly.

Listen Smed. If you have one person who knows how to do all he did.  Why let that talent waste in jail?  Because your plane got diverted and people couldn’t play video games?  Heaven forbid! Why don’t you tell me how SONY got hacked or your security lack there of.  

I swear some people…

Let me repeat that:
Kivivmaki is a true and tried sociopath, who has for years terrorized
individual people including a family on whom he called SWAT teams for
raids risking their lives, hacked their private data and released them, committed identity
theft with them etc etc. He has caused many millions of dollars of
damage to companies/institutions like Microsoft, Sony, Daybreak,
Harvard/MIT ($213.000 alone), ZDNet, Canternet, MongoHQ account theft,
risking people’s jobs and lives. Credit card theft and fraud, hijacking
mails, DDoS attacks while compromising 50.000 PC through his coldfusion
software/backdoor installation, false bomb threats, infecting 1400
servers with malware, money laundering involving Bitcoin.

EatCandy The group is all Finish and Lizard Squad has repeatedly boasted that they are confident that Finish extradition laws/treaties will protect them from that – and prison.

with Smed, this isn’t some innocent kid but a serious sick guy who
expressed clearly that he felt zero remorse for what he had done.

ManastuUtakata Estranged jesseschulkers MaxSand I agree, however, I’m sorta jaded when innocents go to jail for nothing and rich folks can often buy their way out of prison.

Sythalin bryanjturner I think you need to take a step back and see that snarky comments are just snarky comments, hey perhaps go out side and play in the sun, or even perhaps remember to take your psych medications; it’s okay Frank Castle I So Sorry I ruined your day enough to take the time to come back and reply to a snarky comment that was made almost 24 hours ago; reflect on how that makes you look for a second, then get some perspective because I’m not going to waste my time on you again :D
