Jeremy Hammond, a hacker with ties to both Lulzsec and Anonymous, pled guilty in a New York courtroom yesterday. Hammond is accused of being a part of an attack on Strategic Forecasting, Inc, which resulted in the personal info of over 800,000 of the company’s clients being stolen. The attack included the publishing of 60,000 credit card numbers and over $700,000 in fraudulent charges. Hammon has a long rap sheet going back nearly a decade that includes theft, drug, and assault charges, and if convicted faces up to 10 years in prison.
