WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wisconsin trucker who joined a cyberattack on Wichita-based Koch Industries has admitted his role in the onslaught that took the website offline for about 15 minutes.
Thirty-seven-year-old Eric Rosol, of Black Creek, Wis., pleaded guilty Wednesday to one misdemeanor count of accessing a protected computer.
The parties have agreed that the direct loss from the attack staged by the computer hacking group Anonymous is less than $5,000. Koch contends it spent $183,000 for a consulting group when it learned of the planned attack.
It will be up to a federal judge to decide at the Dec. 2 sentencing how much in restitution Rosol must pay.
Defense attorney Kurt Kerns says they're thankful to resolve the case through a misdemeanor that will allow Rosol to move on with his life.
