Following the largest case of its type in Denmark, in October 2014 Gottfrid Svartholm was found guilty of hacking IT company CSC. The Pirate Bay founder immediately appealed but after a technically complex hearing a jury at the High Court today unanimously upheld the decision of the lower court. Two years after being arrested in his Cambodian apartment in September 2012, Gottfrid Svartholm went on trial in Denmark. The Pirate Bay founder and a 21-year-old co-defendant stood accused of hacking computer mainframes operated by US IT giant CSC. It was billed as the largest case of its kind ever seen in the Scandinavian country. Right from the outset Gottfridâ€™s position was that his computer, from where the hacking had taken place, had been compromised by outside attackers. Respected security expert Jacob Appelbaum gave evidence for the defense in support of this theory. However, the court was not convinced. Dismissing the â€œremote controlâ€ defense, Judge Ulla Otken described the hacking of CSC as both â€œsystematic and comprehensive.â€ Three judges and four of six jurors returned guilty verdicts in 2014 and Gottfrid was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison. Never one to give up, Gottfrid immediately filed an appeal and this month his case came before the Eastern High Court. According to local media, whose coverage has been much less intense than when the Swede went on trial last year, the evidence presented by both sides was of a highly technical nature. Writing earlier this week for Version2.dk, ElÃas LundstrÃ¶m reported that even as an IT journalist he had difficulty in following the evidence, a sentiment shared by Gottfridâ€™s mother. â€œI also have trouble understanding it â€“ how should any of the jurors be able to follow the evidence?â€ Kristina Svartholm said. Gottfridâ€™s lawyer Luise HÃ¸j also underlined the difficulty in dealing fairly with such a complex case. â€œI think overall that progress continues to be characterized by the fact that we all lack the technical knowledge to deal with this matter, and it characterizes the whole process,â€ she said. Whether the complexity of the case affected the jury will be a matter for future debate, but a few moments ago all three judges and all nine jurors upheld the District Courtâ€™s decision handed down last October. Addressing the â€œremote accessâ€ defense, the High Court ruling notes that it would be unlikely that Gottfridâ€™s computer could be accessed without him noticing it. Furthermore, the Court found it unusual that the Swede refused to assist police in getting to the bottom of the crime. While the guilty verdict will undoubtedly come as a disappointment to Gottfrid himself, his mother Kristina â€“ who has endured two court cases and numerous trips to Denmark in support of her son â€“ has been openly critical of the entire process. In a series of tweets this week she complained of how the case has been handled, from its roots in Cambodia, via Sweden and ultimately to Denmark.

Former Pirate Bay operator Fredrik Neij is currently jailed in Sweden after being captured in Thailand last month. However, according to leaked emails, the MPAA believes that the Swede could also face hacking related charges - and it doesn't stop there. One by one the key players behind The Pirate Bay have been captured by police and forced to complete jail sentences previously determined by Swedish authorities. The most recently detained was Fredrik Neij, a key player in the operations of The Pirate Bay right from the very early days of the site. After realizing that his fate in Sweden involved a 10 month jail sentence, Neij fled to Laos in Asia where he lived until recently with this young family. He traveled from Laos into bordering Thailand on many occasions but last month his luck ran out. On November 4, immigration police announced that Neij had been detained while crossing the border into Nong Khai, a city in North-East Thailand. What followed was a very public press conference in which a bewildered looking Neij was paraded before the media while flanked by several officers. But while the rest of the world had to wait until November 4 to hear the news, leaked emails obtained by TorrentFreak show that the Hollywood studios knew about things well in advance. In an email dated the day before Neijâ€™s arrest was made public, the MPAA advised chiefs at Disney, Paramount, Sony, Warner Bros, NBC Universal and FOX of the Swedeâ€™s arrest. But things went deeper than that. Already there had been rumors in Thai media that â€œU.S. movie companiesâ€ had hired a lawfirm to track down Neij and that a house on the island of Phuket plus a bank account containing five million baht ($153,000) had been discovered. Emails seen by TF confirm the MPAAâ€™s involvement, but also that they didnâ€™t want that noticed in public. â€œJan Van Voorn [MPAâ€™s Regional Director for Content Protection] and Neil Gane [former policeman, former AFACT boss, now MPA APIC chief in Asia] are in contact with both Swedish and Thai authorities providing additional assistance,â€ the email reveals. â€œThai Immigration is planning a press conference for tomorrow, November 4. We have alerted our Communications Section, and do not plan to comment to the media.â€ Another email confirmed the MPAâ€™s intention to lie low, but that it might already be too late to hide any involvement. â€œHuge win! Donâ€™t know if hackers will retaliate,â€ an email from a studio begins. â€œMPA is laying low and quiet, but the pirate blogs are attributing the pursuit to movie studios.â€ While a brash affair, the press conference itself revealed few details of Neijâ€™s actual arrest other than the time, place, and what he was wearing. However, the correspondence the MPAA had with the studios reveals they knew quite a bit more. Holding a long-standing belief that Neij was somehow still associated with the running of The Pirate Bay, in 2011 the studios obtained a beefed-up injunction which banned the Swede from being involved with the site. Not only has their mindset remained the same for three years, but the studios also believe that Neij could be on the hook for other offenses too. â€œNeij is facing a 10 month prison sentence in Sweden for his conviction in the Pirate Bay case. Neij may also face new charges for his continuing role in the operation of TPB and two additional charges for computer hacking,â€ the emails read. No additional details on any hacking charges were provided or have been released since, but the MPAA are hopeful that items taken from Neij when he was arrested will provide the clues. â€œTwo laptop computers were seized from Neij at the time of his arrest, and may provide additional evidence against Neij and others in the ongoing TPB investigation in Sweden,â€ the MPAA writes. While an investigation into The Pirate Bay is now obvious following the raid two weeks ago, another MPAA email confirms that a criminal referral was also made against â€œTPB co-founder Frederik Neij and his ISP DCP Networks.â€ Fredrik Neij is currently serving his 10 month Pirate Bay related sentence in a Swedish jail but his arrival there from Thailand was never announced publicly. He is the third key Pirate Bay operational figure to be jailed. Gottfrid Svartholm was the first to be detained after authorities in Cambodia handed him over to Swedish police in 2012. Gottfrid completed his sentence but is currently detained in Denmark following an unrelated hacking case. Peter Sunde was captured by a special police unit on a farm in Sweden during the summer of 2014. Sunde served his sentence and is now a free man, probably traveling around Europe. With the imprisonment of Fredrik Neij the MPAA now have the full set, an achievement they were happy to pat themselves on the back for. â€œAnother excellent example of global cooperation and coordination between our content protection hubs,â€ a November email concludes. http://torrentfreak.com/pirate-bays-fredrik-neij-now-wanted-for-hacking-141224/
The overall Sony brand has reportedly taken a major hit in terms of consumer perception in the wake of the hacks against Sony Pictures and the ensuing fallout. The controversy has pushed media and technology giant to its worst levels in six years, according to new research service YouGov, discovered by Variety. YouGov's BrandIndex is calculated by asking people:"If you've heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?" This is then calculated into a score that can range from 100 to -100, with a zero being a neutral position. Sony's score this year began at 13, dropping to 11 on November 24 when the Sony hack was first made public. It only fell further from there as the hackers posted troves of internal Sony documents, including executive salaries, personal emails, and even movie scripts. Things got even worse for Sony following week's cancellation of The Interview, the controversial James Franco/Seth Rogen movie apparently at the heart of the cyberattack, which the FBI says came from North Korea. As of Friday, December 19, Sony's score was 3, a six-year low. YouGov points out that this could fall further, as The Interview's cancellation has drawn much displeasure from some, while United States president Barack Obama has even said Sony "made a mistake" in scuttling the movie's release. This isn't the first time Sony's brand image has taken a hit in recent years. The company's BrandIndex score dropped off in April 2011 when the PlayStation Network was breached. Millions of accounts were compromised, and the service itself didn't return to full functionality for weeks. For more on the fallout from the Sony Pictures hack, be sure to read GameSpot sister sites CNET and CBS News. The YouGov BrandIndex is measured by interviews with 4,300 people every weekday from a representative US population sample.
Gottfrid Svartholm has today been found guilty of hacking crimes by a Danish court. The Swedish Pirate Bay founder and his 21-year-old accomplice were found to have illegally accessed systems operated by IT company CSC. It was the biggest hacking case ever conducted in Denmark. After being arrested in his Cambodian apartment in September 2012 it took two years before Gottfrid Svartholm went on trial in Denmark. The Swede and his 21-year-old co-defendant stood accused of hacking computer mainframes operated by US IT giant CSC. It developed into the largest case of its kind ever seen in the Scandinavian country. The case broadly took shape along two lines. The prosecution insisted that Gottfrid and his Danish accomplice, both experts in computer security, had launched hacker attacks against CSC back in April 2012 and maintained access to those systems until August that same year. The defense claimed it was a case of mistaken identity and that others had carried out the crimes, remotely accessing Gottfridâ€™s computer after comprising its security. Evidence was produced by the prosecution which showed discussion taking place between hackers with the names â€œAdvanced Persistent Terrorist Threatâ€ and â€œMy Evil Twinâ€. The topic in hand was the security and setup of CSCâ€™s databases and systems. These people were Gottfrid and his IT consultant co-defendant, the prosecution said. From the beginning, Gottfridâ€™s position was that his computer, from where the attacks had taken place, had been compromised. This version of events was supported by respected security expert Jacob Appelbaum who gave evidence for the defense not only in this case, but also in Gottfridâ€™s Swedish trial, a case in which he was partly acquitted. Speaking with Denmarkâ€™s TV2 earlier today, Gottfridâ€™s lawyer Luise HÃ¸j said that her client should be found not guilty since it had been established that third parties had carried out the crimes. â€œMy recommendation has always been that the investigation has focused on finding clues that point to my client, even though the tracks have also pointed in another direction,â€ HÃ¸j said. â€œI have recommended that the court dismiss the case based on the remote access argument. It is clear that my clientâ€™s computer has been the subject of remote control, and therefore he is not responsible.â€ But it wasnâ€™t to be. This morning the Court of Frederiksberg found both Gottfrid and his accomplice guilty of hacking into the systems of CSC. Both unlawfully accessed confidential information including police driversâ€™ license records, social security information plus criminal records. Dismissing the remote control defense, Judge Ulla Otken said the hacking of CSC had been both â€œsystematic and comprehensive.â€ All three judges and four of six jurors returned guilty verdicts. Two jurors voted to acquit after concluding that the remote access defense could not be ruled out. Following his extradition from Sweden, Gottfrid has spent 11 months behind bars in Denmark. His Danish accomplice, who refused to give evidence to the police and maintained silence right up until his trial in September, has spent 17 months in jail. Breaking news, article will be updated.
