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.”
