Junaid Hussain, 18, put the sensitive information on the internet for all to see after accessing former special advisor Katy Kay’s e-mail account and copying her contacts.
His barrister claimed his crimes were no worse than the antics of Bullingdon Club members.
Using the online alias ‘Trick’, Hussain posted phone numbers and addresses, as well as the ex-PM’s email address and National Insurance number.
Other data related to his wife Cherie, sister-in-law Lyndsey Booth, his children and friends, as well as sitting MPs and Lords.
Hussain also bombarded the national anti-terror hotline with prank calls, leaving the numbers ‘permanently engaged’ after calling it 111 times in three days.
