An alleged member of Lizard Squad, who claimed responsibility for knocking Sony's PlayStation Network and Microsoft's Xbox Live offline late last year has been convicted of 50,700 counts of cyber crime.
 
The infamous computer hacker gang Lizard Squad launched massive Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks against the largest online gaming networks -- PlayStation Network and Xbox Live -- on Dec. 25, 2014. Then offered to sell its own Lizard-branded DDoS-for-hire tool called Lizard Stresser.
 
 

Julius "zeekill" Kivimaki, a 17-year-old was given a two-year suspended prison sentence and was "ordered to fight against cybercrime," according to Finnish newspaper Kaleva.
 
Facing more than 50,000 Counts of Computer Crime
 
 
Under the alias "Ryan," the teen participated in an interview with U.K. television station Sky News, openly claiming that he is a member of Lizard Squad and that the cyber attacks on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network were conducted to raise awareness of the inadequate security at Microsoft and Sony.
