Excerpt
Excerpt: Paul J. McNulty, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, announced that Myron Tereshchuk, 42, of Hyattsville, Maryland, was sentenced today to one count of attempting to extort $17 million over the Internet. United States District Judge James C. Cacheris sentenced Tereshchuk to 63 months imprisonment. For more than a year, the defendant harassed MicroPatent, an intellectual property firm that produces and distributes patent and trademark information. The defendant sent MicroPatent’s clients hundreds of emails, many of which were “spoofed” to resemble authentic MicroPatent correspondence. The emails contained statements derogatory to MicroPatent, attached sexually explicit patent applications, and disclosed MicroPatent documents that were believed to have been confidential. The defendant obtained the confidential information by gaining unauthorized access to MicroPatent’s computer network and by searching through the trash set out to be collected by a shredding company at MicroPatent’s location in Alexandria, Virginia. The defendant sent emails anonymously by using equipment from his automobile to gain unauthorized access to unsecured wireless computer networks in residences and businesses in Maryland and Virginia. Once the defendant had access to the networks, he often sent the emails using accounts of AOL customers without their knowledge or authorization.
