A computer expert from York has admitted hacking into Facebook.

26 year old Glenn Mangham from Acomb, pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court yesterday.

The court heard Mangham's actions sparked a major security alert in the United States, involving the FBI.

The former computer software development students behaviour was described as the "most effective example of hacking into social media that has come before a British court".

Manghan pleaded guilty to 4 out of 5 charges - including 3 counts of unauthorised access to a computer and 1 count of modifying computer material without authority.
