Ukrainian Arrested In India For TJX Data Theft 40

Posted by kdawson
from the long-long-arm dept.
ComputerWorld reports "A Ukrainian national has been arrested in India in connection with the most notorious hacking incident in US history." "Sergey Valeryevich Storchark was one of 11 men charged in August 2008 with hacking into nine US retailers and selling tens of millions of credit card numbers. He was arrested in India earlier this week, according to a spokesman with India's Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). In a statement, the CBI said they'd arrested Storchark in New Delhi on the night of May 8, as he deplaned from a flight from Goa, for layover before a flight to Turkey. US authorities had asked for his extradition via diplomatic channels. ... 'His extradition and prosecution would have been very unlikely had he reached his final destination of Ukraine,' the CBI said."

    Identity theft is a big problem to deal for the victim. One of my friend took nearly 3 years to clear all the crap these guys pull. These scum bags belong in prison for life.

    That's not attractive nuisance. An attractive nuisance is something that is inviting but dangerous to children, like an unfenced swimming pool or a broken swingset. A pile of gold may be inviting, but it's not dangerous. And attractive nuisance isn't a mitigating factor in charges against the child, it's a charge against the person who left the nuisance where it could do harm to the child.

    Stealing others' property is never excused by "they should have locked it up" arguments. Nor is hacking into others' computers.

The universe is an island, surrounded by whatever it is that surrounds universes.
