Israeli Hacker 'The Analyzer' Indicted in New York

Kim Zetter writes on Threat Level:

Israeli hacker Ehud "The Analyzer" Tenenbaum was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Brooklyn on felony charges of conspiracy and fraud.

Between Feb. 2008 and May 2008 Tenenbaum and others engaged in a scheme to initiate transactions on account numbers belonging to other people, "to receive payment and other things" with an aggregate value of more than $1,000, the indictment charges [.pdf].

The U.S. attorney's office in New York did not immediately respond to a call for comment.

Tenenbaum achieved worldwide notoriety as a teenager in 1998, when he was caught pulling off a series of recreational intrusions into Pentagon computers, in an investigation the Defense Department code named "Solar Sunrise."
