Hacker Admits Defacing NASA, Army Web Sites

November 17, 2001

A juvenile computer hacker faces sentencing in January after pleading guilty to defacing NASA and U.S. Army Web sites last summer with his own Web page protesting the music industry's suit against Napster.

The hacker, known as "Pimpshiz," pleaded guilty earlier this month in Contra Costa Juvenile Court to two of the 11 counts filed against him in June. The other counts were dismissed.

The investigation was conducted by state and federal authorities.
