As reported by SC Magazine, "The man responsible for unleashing what is believed to be the first self-propagating cross-site scripting worm has pleaded guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court to charges stemming from his most infamous hacking."
What Samy did was wrong, and whether he meant it or not, caused damage. The good thing is his sentence doesn't look outrageous, as been seen in other cases, some probation and restitution. He'll be able to get on with his life, but it doesn't look good on a resume thats for sure. Maybe in a couple years we'll see him at a Defcon or BlackHat starting a consultancy like Kevin Mitnick. :)
