Maliciously cracking into systems so you can violated the privacy of rich, powerful and/or famous people is, well, still wrong, but not really much more wrong than papparazzi-ism in general. People who resent those higher on the social ladder are gonna have sympathy with--even if not outright endorsing--anyone who makes trouble for those on the top. Those on the top are going to be absolutely enraged by them.
Thus you have internet commenters who glorify hackers, and government leaders and the wealthy who absolutely crucify them in response. I don't know what will happen to Guccifer in Romania, but if he were arrested in America he'd probably be looking at decades of time--for a 42-year, probably a life-sentence. What he did was wrong, but he doesn't deserve to lose his freedom for the rest of his life.
