To think that such potential talent was spoiled by such ignorance and naivety...

Any high profile hacking incident is potentially related to high profit crimes. High profit crimes draw the attention of organized crime. Organized crime can afford their own men and guns.

The precaution while overboard in hindsight, was simply prudence at the time.

Being frightened for a few minutes then getting two years of probation is nothing compared to federal prison.

It's usually not called SWAT, but many, if not most, nations have police divisions with a similar premise.

He wasn't all that young, just naive in the extreme.

I'm of similar age and at the time of the leak I never would have considered contacting Valve or admitting to anything. Indeed as soon as I heard about the leak, (not that I would have been foolish enough to share the source code (unless I was being paid a great deal of money) I would have carefully removed any evidence of what I had done.

I would have assumed a trap and that they would try to nail me to a wall if I was ever confirmed to be the source of the leak.

Exactly.

The old UK government was keen to get him extradited , but the new government in less so keen and after 9 years his fate is not decided. There is an ongoing review,
Did he find any evidence or anything else interesting?
