Teenage hacker 'Mafiaboy' - who allegedly brought leading websites to their knees in February - has been re-granted bail after he promised to get a job.
The 16-year-old hacker, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested in April and charged with more than 60 counts of hacking, including February's denial of service attacks which hit Yahoo, eBay and Amazon.com, among others.
He was re-arrested on 1 December for violating bail conditions relating to issues concerning school attendance and computer use.
However, at a hearing on Tuesday he told a judge that he would leave school to work full time and the judge granted him bail on condition that he keeps the job.
Mafiaboy faces two years in a juvenile detention centre if convicted - adults can be jailed for up to 10 years if convicted on the same charges. He has pleaded innocent to more than 60 charges relating to denial of service attacks and breaking into US university campus computers to beef up his hacking power.
The trial is expected to begin in March.
