A 24-year old security researcher from England named Zammis Clark has pleaded guilty for hacking into Microsft and Nintendo servers causing damages of around $3-4 million.

Clark was a former security researcher at Malwarebytes went before the court in London this week accused of accessing servers of both companies, stealing user information, accessing files related to unreleased products and illegally sharing login details.

Clark gained access to a Microsoft server on January 24, 2017, and proceeded to upload a “web shell to remotely access Microsoft’s network freely for at least three weeks. He shared access of these through an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server chatroom which allowed other hackers from around the world to also gain access to Microsoft servers.

Clark was finally discovered in June 2017 when he uploaded malware on Microsoft’s network and was arrested but was posted bail and was given no restrictions as far as computer use. Shortly after he was back home, he hacked into Nintendo’s internal network in March of 2018 and gained access through VPNs to “Nintendo’s highly confidential game development servers.”

Despite his repeated offences and the severity of them, Clark won’t be facing prison as he is both autistic and has face blindness and will be issued with a 15-month suspension sentence.
