Jason Diekman2000-09-21 00:00:00 UTC

allegedly gained unauthorized “root-level” access to at least three computer systems at JPL. This hacking activity gave him control over all aspects of the computers, including the ability to modify files and alter security on the systems. According to the affidavit, Diekman used JPL’s computers to intercept electronic communications on the JPL systems, launch attacks on other computer systems, and run Internet Relay Chat software. IRC, a form of real-time communications on the Internet, was used by Diekman to communicate with other hackers and to trade information. Diekman’s IRC software allowed him to control his own “channel” that was running on JPL computers. Diekman is also accused of gaining unauthorized access to approximately two dozen computers at Stanford University. Among those systems were two NASA-owned systems that contained control software for various NASA satellites.

arranged in December 1998 to supply hardware for the operation of Sentinel. At that time, Sentinel’s storage capacity was limited and Boyanovsky allegedly told Rothberg that he could provide substantial storage capacity for a piracy site. Rothberg, Boyanovsky, Riley and Augustine allegedly agreed that Intel employees would be given access to the software available on Sentinel in exchange for sending Intel hardware to the site operators in Canada to expand Sentinel’s storage capacity. Without Intel’s knowledge or consent, Augustine allegedly assembled the hardware and shipped it in December 1998, at Intel’s expense, to Canada, and Geissberger allegedly assisted with clearing the shipment through Canadian customs. Once Sentinel was operating with its expanded storage capacity, the Intel defendants obtained accounts that allowed them to access pirated software.
