    An 18-year-old from Arizona has been indicted after an iOS exploit he posted on Twitter caused disruption to 911 emergency systems.

    Meetkumar Hiteshbhai Desai was arrested and booked in late October following an investigation of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit.

    The Arizona Attorney General announced this week that the teen has been indicted on four felony counts of computer tampering. The computer tampering charges in this case constitute class 2 felonies because the 911 system is classified as critical infrastructure.
