LONDON, England (Reuters) -- An English teenager, charged with hacking in and crippling a U.S. seaport's computer navigation system, told a court on
Friday his PC was hijacked by hackers posing as him.
Aaron Caffrey, 19, from Dorset, southwest England, was charged last year under the 1990 Computer Misuse Act and accused of unleashing a flood of data
capable of knocking computers offline on a Houston, Texas, seaport in September 2001. He denies the charges.
Caffrey is accused of triggering the paralyzing data blast on a vital computer server used to coordinate ship movements in the Houston port -- the
sixth biggest shipping port in the world, the court heard this week.
