Jake Davis, the hacker charged with launching a DDoS attack on the Serious Organised Crime Agency web site, as well as several other computer crime offences, has been released on bail on the condition that he doesn't use the internet at home.
Davis, who is suspected of being a member of the Anonymous and LulzSec hacktivist groups, was told he could live with his mother and brother under curfew at their new Lincolnshire home but not go online.
The 18 year-old, who is also suspected of going by the online label 'Topiary', fought through a scrum of photographers outside the court, appearing in a blue shirt and wearing a pair of black sunglasses.
His defence team reportedly claims that he is merely a sympathiser with the groups, and did not help to carry out any of the attacks himself.
However, Reuters reported that police seized a laptop running 16 different virtual computers via a 100GB drive. Worse still, they reportedly found files on the recent Sony hacks, as well as email addresses and passwords belonging to hundreds of thousands of members of the public.
Davis's first trial hearing will be on 30 August at Southwark Crown Court. Whether he'll be able to resist going online until then remains to be seen.
