Router failure: telecom hackers shipped to the UK

Friday, September 1st, 2017 | Gadgets

According to Spiegel Online, the telecom hacker, who was convicted by the district court of Cologne, has been delivered to his home in Great Britain. There he is accused of further attacks on telecommunications infrastructure. In Germany, the man has been sentenced to a probation penalty of one year and eight months.

The 29-year-old is said to have extorted financial companies in Great Britain. He is accused of having been involved in attacks against the infrastructure of the Lloyds Banking Group and against Barclays, as a result he was supposed to have sent blackmail letters. He is also investigating whether he is linked to an attack on Lonestar MTN, the largest Internet service provider in Liberia.
The transfer took place on Wednesday this week, as a spokesman of the Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Cologne reported according to Spiegel Online on Thursday. In Great Britain the man is likely to face much tougher penalties than in Germany. Again and again the harsh punishments for hackers in Great Britain are being criticized, similar to punishment according to the computer Fraud and Abuse Act in the USA.
Telekom routers were a collateral damage
The routers of the Telekom were only indirectly affected by the attack. The malware could not infect the devices because they use an incompatible operating system. According to the Telekom, a loss of two million euros was incurred.
The 29-year-old had first been arrested in London and transferred to Germany. The Swiss Federal Office for Security in Information Technology has been involved in technical research.
