(AP) - A teen-age hacker who was briefly linked to a : highly publicized series of hacking attacks against major companies : pleaded guilty Tuesday to three misdemeanors. : : Dennis Moran, 18, who went by the name of "Coolio," broke into : rsa.com, operated by Internet security company RSA Security Inc., and : dare.com, an anti-drug site connected to the Los Angeles Police : Department. For the umpteenth million time, RSA was not broken into. The defacement was a result of DNS hijacking and a redirect to a box in South America. The DNS servers were controlled by RSA's upstream provider. : If a judge approves a plea agreement, Moran will serve nine months to a : year in jail and pay $5,000 in restitution to each of three victims. Why should RSA get one penny? Their upstream was the one broken into.. : The Web site of RSA - which proclaims itself "the most trusted name in : e-security" - was linked to another hacked computer at a university in : South America. There, a nearly duplicate hoax site proclaimed: "Trust us : with your data! Praise Allah!" Ahh.. so read down and you get accuracy, but skim the first few paragraphs and you get errata?
