Teen who hacked into Apple to study criminology, cyber safety

Remember the teenager who hacked into the Apple system over two years ago and saved the data on an obviously named folder called 'Hacky, Hack, Hack'? Well, it turns out the teenager will not be serving in prison for his misdeeds.

As Cnet reported, the teenager was just 16 years old when he first gained unauthorized access to Apple's mainframe only because he was a fan of the company and wanted to work there. He pleaded guilty in August but was sentenced this week. 

Well, the updated version of the story is no conviction will be recorded and an eight-month probation order will be placed. The teenager who at present is now 19, has been accepted into a university where he will be studying criminology and cyber safety.
