All got out of hand
A teen German hacker has said that he is sorry for nicking the music of popular beat combo arties like Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson and flogging them online.

Deniz A. told Bild newspaper in an interview that he and a friend hadn't set out to do anything wrong and he never thought it would go so far. He said that the pair were only interested in the music and wanted to hear it.

Coppers claim that the pair used a Trojan Horse malware to hack into the artists' computers for about 12 months before being discovered.

They made more than €10,000 in illegal sales and forced the advanced release of several singles. So far the pair are yet to be charged.
