- A hacker from Kosovo stolen information played to Islamic State Friday in the United States sentenced to twenty years in prison. The twenty men, within their own circle known as Th3Dir3ctorY, broke into the computers of more than one thousand US government officials, including many soldiers. Information that was of interest to him, he relayed to IS.
The perpetrator was arrested last year in Malaysia and extradited to the United States. He confessed in June guilt before a federal judge in Virginia. ' This case of cybercrime shows the combination of hacking and terrorism for the first time the great and real danger to our national security, '' said a spokesman for Justice.
The Kosovar had particular contact with a now deceased Briton, who was known to members recruited for IS and preparing attacks.
