WiFi-hacking neighbor from hell gets 18 years in prison

A Minnesota hacker prosecutors described as a depraved criminal was handed an 18-year prison term Tuesday for unleashing a vendetta of cyberterror that turned his neighbour lives into a living nightmare.

Barry Ardolf, 46, repeatedly hacked into his next-door neighbours’ WiFi network in 2009, and used it to try and frame them for child pornography, sexual harassment, various kinds of professional misconduct and to send threatening e-mail to politicians, including Vice President Joe Biden.

His motive was to get back at his new neighbours after they told the police he’d kissed their 4-year-old son on the lips — via ars technica
