ISIS Hacker who Passed U.S. Military Data to Terrorists Arrested in Malaysia


Recommended Posts

Malaysian authorities have arrested a Kosovo citizen in Kuala Lumpur on Computer hacking charges and allegedly providing personal data about United States military members to the Islamic State Terrorists group (also known as ISIS or ISIL).
According to the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI, Kosovo citizen Ardit Ferizi allegedly hacked into the US web hosting company's servers and stole personal data of more than 1,300 US government and military employees.
Ferizi didn't use the stolen data for identity theft; instead he allegedly handed the hacked information over to Junaid Hussain (also known as Abu Hussain Al Britani), an ISIS member and hacker who was killed in a US drone strike in August.

The stolen data includes names, email addresses, passwords, phone numbers and locations of US military service members and government workers.
