A 17 years of age boy admitted that he hacked the PlayStation site of Sony back in November, 2008. The boy, Greater Latrobe Senior High School student from Pennsylvania, pleaded that he took revenge on the site after being banned for cheating in a SOCOM U.S. Navy Seals tournament. He brought down the site for 11 days in November 2008 by infecting it with a virus.

The teen has plead guilty in juvenile court to unlawful use of a computer, criminal use of a computer, computer trespassing, and the distribution of a computer virus. While the teen is an honors student, reports indicate that the method the boy used to infect Playstation severs wasn’t a difficult one, leaving the possibility of future attacks if Sony doesn’t make some adjustments.

The charges grew out of a federal grand jury investigation in San Diego, but authorities agreed to let the charges be handled by Westmoreland County Juvenile Court because of the boy’s age.

Pittsburgh’s Channel 4 news reports:

Channel 4 Action News’ news exchange partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported the 11th grade student was adjudicated delinquent, the juvenile court version of a guilty plea, for unlawful use of a computer, criminal use of a computer, computer trespassing and the distribution of a computer virus.

The boy is living with his parents and attends Greater Latrobe Senior High School, about 40 miles east of Pittsburgh. He’ll be sentenced at an undetermined date.
