The FBI has arrested 26-year-old Matthew Delorey for allegedly selling modified cable modems that allowed free Internet access, according to Computerworld.
Federal authorities claim that Delorey ran a now-defunct Web site called Massmodz.com, that sold hacked modems. The modems allowed users to either obtain free Internet access or make it appear that a different modem was obtaining access.
Delorey has been charged with one count of conspiracy and one count of wire fraud. If convicted, he could face a $250,000 fine and get up to 20 years in prison for each charge.
