Uh-oh! Watch out, hackers!

They're coming for you!

Kevin Poe, of Manchester, CT, was arrested yesterday on federal charges of conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer, after he was linked to attacking a website that belongs to Gene Simmons with a "denial of service" in October against the Kiss bassist's systems, AKA using a program used by the Anonymous group to send countless electronic requests to GeneSimmons.com that deliberately is designed to overload the server!

Although no other arrests have been made and Poe was released on $10,000 bond, he's facing up to 15 years in prison!

Ouch!

We bet he's wondering now if such a pointless act was really worth that much time behind bars!
