A British man wanted in the US for hacking into Nasa and Pentagon computers soon after the September 11 attacks in 2001 has lost his latest appeal against extradition.

Gary McKinnon, 43, broke into 97 computers belonging to NASA, the US Department of Defence and branches of its military in what US authorities called “the biggest military hack of all time”.

If this guy did something like that then I can only imagine what the Chinese government sponsored army of hackers have accomplished. He is being used as an example and nothing more. He didn't even have a high speed connection which did not allow for any downloading of information. He also claims he did not destroy anything while snooping around. I don't think the guy should be made an example of. That is not going to stop China and other nations from attempting to hack into those computers.
