TalkTalk hacker Daniel Kelley sentenced to four years

A man who was involved in a major hack attack of telecoms firm TalkTalk has been sentenced to four years' detention. Kelley turned to hacking when he failed to get the GCSE grades to get on to a computer course, the court heard. Judge Mark Dennis told the Old Bailey that Kelley hacked computers "For his own personal gratification" regardless of the damage caused. The court heard how Kelley was just 16 when he hacked into Coleg Sir Gar out of "Spite or revenge", causing widespread disruption to students and teachers and affecting the Welsh Government Public Sector network - including schools, councils, hospitals and emergency services. Kelley sometimes worked with a hacking collective named Team Hans, the court heard.
