Milmur, at age seventeen, wrote a computer program creating a worm that took over thousands of computers. A computer security analyst called it “the most advanced worm yet.” It disrupted commerce and people’s lives. Milmur agreed to plead guilty to a federal charge of unauthorized access to a computer to further a fraud since he used the program to steal credit card information and defraud people nationwide. Friends and family urged the judge to be lenient in his sentencing, claiming he was a brilliant computer programmer who had the skills to help the country defend itself against the growing threat of cyberterrorism. If you were the judge would you exercise leniency in your sentencing?
