Romanian DoD hacker nabbed

March 20, 2009
In 2006, a hacker calling himself Wolfenstein broke into a Department of Defense network causing $35,000 in damages. Even though he compromised remote servers and deleted access logs in an attempt to cover his tracks, 23-year-old Romanian student Eduard Lucian Mandru was tracked down and arrested by Romanian police this week and now faces up to 12 years behind bars. He was traced through his Yahoo email account. A question remains whether the U.S. will request extradition, and if so, whether it will be honored. — GM
