Two Year Sentence Issued to British Teenager who Hacked CIA Emails

by Admin on April 27, 2018

Kane Gamble, an 18 year old from the UK accessed the email accounts of top US intelligence agencies including CIA chief John Brennan, US Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, Obama’s deputy national security adviser Avril Haines and FBI special agent Amy Hess.

The FBI requested his arrest in 2017 and he has now been sentenced to two years in a youth detention facility. Gamble accessed highly sensitive information, including court cases such as the Deepwater Oil Spill. He shared some of the files with Wikileaks and further admitted to having a list of Homeland Security Employees.

The judge that issued his sentencing said it was a “nasty campaign of politically motivated cyber terrorism”. The prosecutor on his case added that Gamble had said his motivation for the hacks was because he was against the US “killing of innocent civilians” and support for the Palestinians.
