Teen School and Flight Hacker Arrested

Trying to separate a teenager from his phone is tough to do. Trying to separate a teen hacker from his computer, is nearly impossible. Last week, British police arrested 19-year old George Duke-Cohan on suspicion of making hoax bomb threats to thousands of schools and airlines in the UK and US and demanding $5,000 in extortion. It wasn’t his first offense. Last March, the same teen was arrested for making fake bomb threats and was released on bail under the condition that he not be allowed to use any sort of electronic device. Um. Cohan is suspected to be a member of the nefarious Apophis Squad cyber gang, the group that took responsibility for the grounding of a United Airlines flight in August.
