Ex-Web Producer Pleads Not Guilty in Tribune Hacking Case

Matthew Keys, a former Web producer for a Tribune Co.-owned television station in Sacramento, California, pleaded not guilty to charges he conspired with hackers who broke into a company news website.

Keys, of Secaucus, New Jersey, entered the plea today in federal court in Sacramento. He was charged in a March 14 indictment with providing log-in credentials for a Tribune computer server in December 2010 to members of the hacker group known as Anonymous, who used the information to make changes to an online version of a Los Angeles Times news story.
