The Chinese police arrested 96 hackers

13 Mar 2017

A serious crime was committed in China, with the local police managing to take out all the part of the operation. 96 hackers were arrested across 14 provinces of the country and they were highly educated technicians, who gained access to many credit and debit cards, account passwords and ID numbers and they used huge amounts of money in online gambling. One of the main suspects was an engineer at Beijing-based JD.com, one of the largest e-commerce companies in China. As the police mentioned, this person stole data from his employer's servers before resigning and from there he proceeded with his thefts.

The newspaper that brought the whole situation on the daylight, also reported: «Another main suspect, surnamed Weng, had been hired as a technical adviser at a gaming website and online gambling platform.». On the next few days everything will become much more clearer and the Chinese justice will decide the fates of the 96 hackers.
