The Australian Federal Police found 85,925 stories stolen from film and music broadcasters of a 23-year-old man who was sentenced to two years in prison, two months, and 200 hours of community service for his actions.

During the arrest of the Sydney man in March, the laptop used for abuse and cryptocurrencies equivalent to 35,000 Australian dollars (about 8,180,000 Ft) were confiscated.
