Hacker threatened net provider
Mon July 16, 2012 3:53pm
AN INTERNET user has admitted hacking a service provider's computers, threatening to burn down its offices and menacing its owner with an axe.
Bryce Kingsley Quilley, 29, of Tailem Bend, appeared in the District Court today.
He pleaded guilty to three counts of unlawful modification of computer data, one aggravated count of threatening to cause harm and one aggravated count of threatening to damage property.
Court documents show the offences occurred at Tailem Bend on June 14 last year.
On three occasions that day - between 12.20pm and 12.50pm, 5.40pm and 6.05pm and 9.40pm and 10.15pm - Quilley hacked the servers of an internet service provider.
That same day, he threatened to burn down the offices of the ISP and, while armed with an axe, threatened to cause harm to its owner.
Judge Paul Rice remanded Quilley on continuing bail to face sentencing submissions in August.
