Christopher Weatherhead, 22, of Northampton is on trial accused of computer hacking
Weatherhead committed a series of cyber attacks as part of hacking group Anonymous that cost the website PayPal £3.5m, a court heard today.
Weatherhead is alleged to have taken part in the cyber campaign which also attacked other sites including MasterCard, Visa, Ministry of Sound, the British Recorded Music Industry (BPI) and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).
At least 104 employees from eBay, the parent company of PayPal, were employed to work on issues directly related to the attack for three weeks afterwards, the court heard.
