How a High School Dropout Hacked a Million Devices

The unemployed high-school dropout who hacked nearly one million Internet routers, DVRs and video cameras doesnt look particularly formidable in his pajamas.

Kenneth Currin Schuchman, 21, pleaded guilty Tuesday to aiding and abetting computer intrusion in a federal court in Anchorage, Alaska, admitting he co-created the Satori botnet and at least four others that ripped through the Swiss cheese security surrounding the so-called Internet of Things (IoT).

He met with Headline News last year about two months after his indictment, on condition that our story was only published after his guilty plea. At the time he was free on bail and under house arrest. Largely confined to his fathers Vancouver, Washington apartment, he longer bothered getting dressed for the day.
