Brief: Cybersaboteur Sentenced To Eight Years

Former systems administrators took down ex-employer's servers.

The former systems administrator convicted in July of launching a cyberattack on UBS PaineWebber four years ago was sentenced to 97 months in jail in U.S. District Court in Newark, N.J., last week. Roger Duronio, 64, stood impassive as Judge Joseph Greenaway Jr. handed down the sentence. "This wasn't an instance when an individual argues that 'I had a bad day, and I made a mistake,'" said the judge.

Duronio was found guilty of computer sabotage and securities fraud for planting a so-called logic bomb that took down as many as 2,000 servers in UBS PaineWebber's central data center in Weehawken, N.J., and in branch offices around the country.
