Blogger Convicted in Los Angeles Times Hack Sentenced to Prison

A former Tribune Media Co. employee was sentenced to two years in prison for helping the Anonymous hacking collective gain access to the Los Angeles Times website to alter a story, according to prosecutors.

Matthew Keys, a well-known blogger, was accused of launching a cyber-attack on the media company out of revenge after he was fired in October 2010. A federal jury in Sacramento, California, in October found Keys guilty of conspiracy to damage a protected computer, transmission of a malicious code and attempted transmission of a malicious code.
