Hack the Judge

I find it a little amusing that a hacker was the decisive player in getting a judge off the bench and in prison. A young hacker developed a trojan horse that he attached to fake files in an online message board for people who are looking for child porn. One person whose computer was infected was an Orange County judge.

This trojan horse allowed the hacker to see everything a person did on their computer. He could read their emails, see the files they send, see what they put on their computer, and determine what their involvement was with pornography. When he saw, through an online diary, that this judge was planning on pursuing young boys, he turned it over to authorities.

From there the judge was disrobed.
