GREENVILLE, S.C. - A computer hacker has pleaded guilty to putting a malicious program into the computer system at Six Flags.
Reports indicate 27-year-old Mark Kahn apologized Tuesday as he pleaded guilty to a federal charge of intentionally causing damage to a computer system.
Kahn was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to stay away from computers except for work.
Prosecutors say Kahn was living in Greenville in 2004 when he inserted a code into the online job application forms for Six Flags, inundating the computers at the Georgia amusement park with hundreds of bogus applications. Some of them bragged about Kahn hacking the site.
