attacks", 31 Oct 2001:

"An Australian man was today sent to prison for two years after he was 
found guilty of hacking into the Maroochy Shire, Queensland computerised 
waste management system and caused millions of litres of raw sewage to 
spill out into local parks, rivers and even the grounds of a Hyatt 
Regency hotel."
