Question: Why shouldn’t you put tinfoil over your windows?
Answer: because it makes you look mental.

Especially after Scotland Yard arrest you for hacking multinational companies.

A photo of 19 year old hacker Ryan Cleary’s bedroom has just been released. Key features include the covered up window, the air conditioner, a picture of two naked women mud-wrestling and a ginger cat.

The cat is great. The rest makes him look CRAZY.

    So having a suggestive poster of women and having an air con are signs of going crazy? Bugger me, the majority of the world must be insane.

    I can to a certain degree understand the tinfoil thing making him appear crazy (although it serves very well for insulation from the heat pouring out of the air con piping), but he’s apparently agoraphobic which could explain him not wanting to see outside.

    Anyways that aside it looks hardly any different from an average home office.

    Yeah… You guys are dicks. There’s nothing wrong with the way the kid’s room looks, especially seeing how he is an agoraphobic. Unless you’re insinuating all agoraphobic’s are mental cases, which I wouldn’t put past you assholes.

    yeah it looks normal and it looks a hell of a lot tidier than the average 19 year old’s room.

    quit being media fags and start supporting the people not the state and corps

    Firstly, this whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. I have no idea what the media’s definition of a “hacker” is but if someone fires off a DDoS then they’re a “hacker” where’s the hack? Where’s the intelligence, the stealth. Secondly, does someone having an aircon in their room make them crazy? A picture of semi naked women mud wrestling, does that make them crazy? OK maybe the tin foil? I know!! It’s dual screen monitors! Nothing makes the room look crazy, but this article makes the author look STUPID.

    The question is, why the hell has this photograph been released to the public before he has even been to court to face these ALLEGED charges?

    And before anyone calls someone crazy lets look at the evidence regarding the tin foil. He’s got an air conditioning unit which would naturally lead one to assume he wanted to keep it cool in there. What’s one of the best shiny, reflective and cheap materials that anyone could use to keep the heat of the sun out? Hmmmm.. let me think.

    This is just lame propaganda. Only a fool wouldn’t see that.

    I expect shinyshiny.tv is just doing this in a weird attempt to get a revenge DDoS attack against themselves and some much needed publicity. FAIL.

    wow…. leave it to the media to attempt to blow it out of proportion. Tin foil on windows = reflects light off of windows. Perfect solution to night owls who want to sleep in and complete dark room at noon. The poster? From the looks of it, its a de-motivational poster (Teamwork). You can buy them from stores even. It’s not like his wall was covered in shitty print off’s of porn stars taped over the wall. Hell even looking at his entire setup, I would not even say he was a hacker.

    Maybe the PC was seized? and this photo was taken afterwards?

    As someone with Asperger’s it would be impossible for me to judge this article objectively. However, I cannot see where this particular documentation of Clearys’ personal habits achieves anything. This picture is not vital evidence, I saw a room like this when I was browsing for flats recently.
    ShinyShiny is in it for the lulz, I get it, rant over.
    Keep it classy kids.
