Former LulzSec hacker on internet dependency

LulzSec gained international attention when they hacked the Sony website in 2011, taking down the company's PlayStation network for weeks and accessing millions of users' accounts. The action was estimated to have cost the company over $100m (£65m).

The hacking collective went on to wreak a trail of chaos across the web during their 50-day campaign - targeting organisations including the FBI and Britain's Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).

In his first television interview, the Scottish teenager behind LulzSec's PR operation, Jake Davis, who on Wednesday was handed a 24 month sentence over his computer hacking, talks to BBC Newsnight's Susan Watts about how he became addicted to the internet and how that can lead to regrettable decisions.

Watch the full interview with Jake Davis on Newsnight on Thursday 16 May 2013 at 2230 on BBC Two and then afterwards on the BBC iPlayer and Newsnight website.
