Dutch Hacker Pleads Not Guilty in Seattle Court
A Dutch citizen yesterday pled not guilty to charges related to the theft of over 44,000 credit card numbers.
“David Benjamin Schrooten, aka ‘Fortezza,’ is being targeted by federal prosecutors for allegedly hacking into computers and stealing massive amounts of credit card numbers,” writes CNET News’ Dara Kerr. “Once he obtained the numbers, he allegedly sold them in bulk quantities via different Web sites. The 44,000 is reportedly from just one sale.”
