eBay Romanian Hacker Arrested

BUCHAREST / 12:02, 18.04.2008 - Mediafax

The Bucharest court Friday issued a 29-day arrest warrant for the Romanian accused of repeatedly breaking into email accounts belonging to eBay employees between 2005 and 2007 causing damages of over $2 million.
The hacker, Vlad Constantin Duiculescu, was arrested for 24 hours by organized crime prosecutors.

On April 19, 2005, the US-Secret Service sent Romanian authorities a notice on the internet sale of an application containing the source code of the eBay login page, which required users to enter usernames and passwords.

Following investigations, it was found that eBay users were being redirected to fake websites. Investigators identified over 270 such websites, seven of which were linked to Duiculescu.
