The hacker who directed hundreds of cyber attacks on corporations and foreign governments before turning FBI informant walked free Tuesday after being handed a symbolic seven-month sentence. Monsegur was first arrested in 2011 and had already served seven months in jail before being released on bail in December 2012. The original charges could have landed him in prison for decades but the government asked for him to be exempt from even a mandatory minimum sentence given his 'extraordinary cooperation.'
