Freed Hacker Sees Technology Access Restricted

Convicted hacker Jake Davis has had his technology use significantly restricted following his release from a young offender institution.

The 20-year-old, who carried out computer hacking as part of his role in LulzSec, can no longer get in touch with anyone linked to the wider Anonymous hacktivist collective.

He is also not permitted to create encrypted files, delete his internet history or securely wipe data.

Mr Davis had been handed a 24-month sentence, but had been wearing an electronic tag for 21 months, which counted against his term.

After heading home he returned to Twitter and wrote: "654 days on curfew and 37 days in Feltham. Up next, another 365 days on licence (parole) and 1,825 days of intense monitoring. Free though!"

He is now expected to publish online a diary which he wrote during his stint in the young offender institution.
