BOSTON (AP) – A Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for breaking into computer networks at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California and conspiring to sell access to them.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston said 23-year-old Andrew James Miller of Devon, Pa., also was sentenced Wednesday to 36 months of supervised release, fined $25,000 and ordered to pay nearly $6,500 in restitution. He pleaded guilty in August to one count of conspiracy and two counts of computer intrusion.
Prosecutors said Miller hacked into computers in Massachusetts and elsewhere from 2008 to 2011, getting access that he and his co-conspirators sold. Prosecutors said Miller installed so-called “backdoors” on some of the computers.
Prosecutors said the scheme involved commercial, education and government computer networks. They said Miller tried to sell access to two super computers at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California for $50,000.
