las vegas - British researcher Marcus Hutchins, who once stopped one of the biggest cyber attacks, has been arrested in Las Vegas. Unknown is why he is being held.
That reports The Telegraph. The ransomware WannaCry made more than 230,000 victims worldwide in more than 150 countries this year. The 23-year-old Hutchins knew from his small bedroom in the parental home to prevent further spread. He was immediately seen as a big hero, after which his name came out. Hutchins was not happy about that.
