In 2014 there was an massive operation by law enforcement against the Blackshades malware. The people which were using the malware to infect unaware users were arrested globally.
Today it was released that a 26-year old hacker was condemned by the British authorities. He has to pay 300 pounds, serve 280 public-services hours and if he makes one mistake in the period of 6 months, he will be jailed directly.
The BlackShades malware allowed the operator to fully control infected devices. The 26-year old guy had tried to blackmail a female for 5 dollars (Ridiculous, I know).
