One such session was found on the suspect’s phone, police said. Foul-mouthed hacker hijacks baby monitor Investigators examining e-mail exchanges found one in which an alleged victim wrote she was downloading Skype and pleading, “Please remember im only 17. Have a heart.” “I’ll tell you this right now! I do NOT have a heart!!!” he wrote back, per the complaint. “However I do stick to my deals! Also age doesn’t mean a thing to me.” Authorities executed a search warrant at Abrahams’ home on June 4, at which time he “voluntarily agreed to speak” with a pair of FBI agents. Describing himself in that interview as a college freshman who was good with computers, the complaint said, he admitted using malware and his expertise to “watch his victims change their clothes and … use the photographs against them.” Abrahams further admitted the e-mail accounts, VPN, domain names or other pieces of the electronic puzzle that investigators used to build a case were his, according to the criminal complaint. Outside the court Thursday, Abrahams’ lawyer Alan Eisner said that his client’s family feels “profound regret and remorse” over what happened. He told CNN affiliate KTLA that Abrahams is autistic. “The family wants to apologize for the consequences of his behavior to the families who were affected,” Eisner said.

at USAs Mitchell Center. About 150 people attended the forum to see Everts presentation, which included some of her own photographs shed taken during a visit to USA on the weekend of the final round of interviews. She praised the beauty of the campus and its surroundings, and stressed the need to publicize the universitys strengths. The University of South Alabama is a well-kept secret, she said. More people need to know about the great things youre doing. It really is important to communicate our accomplishments. The university should also expand its international outreach, she said, and offer more opportunities for students to study abroad and to share the universitys research accomplishments with a broader audience. Everts also discussed her leadership style. Listening is vitally important to me, she said, along with the value of collective thinking in addressing problems. Doug Marshall, president of USAs Faculty Senate and a member of the presidential search committee, started the question-and-answer session by asking Everts about her vision for the university over the next five to 10 years. The vision needs to flow from the strategic plan, she said. It will evolve and grow, given the changes and issues important to the university, and will enable us to capitalize on opportunities. Marshall also asked Everts to discuss a typical faculty members workday in the future. Increasingly, faculty members will expand the options for online learning, Everts said. There are some disciplines that have tremendous growth in online learning, and I expect that to continue, she said.
