We just learned today that cyber terrorist Samata Ullah has been jailed for eight years by Cardiff Crown Court.

Ullah was was arrested with a USB drive loaded with a copy of the Linux Mint distribution, among other various items that were confiscated by the police.

The former insurance company employee pleaded guilty to five terrorism charges, including being a member of the Islamic State (ISIS) and two additional charges of possessing terrorist material.

Police had a look around his “basic Wordpress” blog aimed at promoting ISIS propaganda. They noted that law investigators seized more than 6.1 terabytes of data from his home in the U.K.

People on the web started asking whether Britain was trying to outlaw basic HTTPS security when Ullah was first arrested in 2016, thanks to one of the original charges against him being that he was running an encrypted version of his blog.

It turned out that his website was partly hosted on ZeroNet, a peer-to-peer service that keeps websites online without a central server. A novel approach, but certainly not unusual.

Ullah’s extended sentence includes a further five years in prison after his release, meaning he will be subject to close supervision by the British authorities.
