Hacker sentenced to 7 years in prison for stealing credit card information

Minggu, 12 Agustus 2012

A 21-year-old Maryland man who was part of a credit card hacking ring that targeted businesses in Seattle and across the country has been sentenced to seven years in prison.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Seattle says Christopher A. Schroebel partnered with 21-year-old Dutch computer hacker David Benjamin Schrooten to steal credit card numbers from businesses across the country and sell them in bulk through websites.

In their charges, prosecutors say Schroebel had in his possession 84,000 credit card numbers he had stolen or bought from other hackers. The two hackers operated "point of sale" operations, in which spy software is installed in computers used by businesses for transactions. The software records credit card numbers used.

Schroebel pleaded guilty in May to charges of bank fraud, obtaining information from a protected computer, access device fraud, among others.

Schrooten, who was arrested in Romania, is set to stand trial next month.
