A Latvian hacker was sentenced to 33 months in prison on Wednesday after earning over $150,000 in a “scareware” scheme that infected computers after visiting the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s website in 2010.

Peteris Sahurovs, 29, received the sentence in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota for conspiracy to commit wire fraud. He will be deported to Latvia after serving the time in a U.S. prison.
