Miami Hacker Could Get 25 Years

A Miami based hacker know as “segvec” and “soupnazi” plead guilty Tuesday to helping to orchestrate the theft of a massive amount of credit and debit card numbers. This is the third case against Albert Gonzalez, who was accused of hacking into a variety of retail stores purloining some tens of millions of credit and debit card credentials.

Back in September, Gonzalez plead guilty to charges in Massachusetts connected with the widespread breach. The US Department of Justice claim that this is one of the largest security breaches to be investigated and prosecuted in US history.

His sentencing is set for March and could see him receiving 25 years in prison. He was accused of being the leader in a ring of cyber criminals that stole the financial information from a series of retail stores.
