Malaysian hacker gets 10 years in US prison
A US District judge sentenced a Malaysian to 10 years in prison for hacking into the US Federal Reserve and other banks.

Lin Mun Poo, a Malaysian citizen, had admitted earlier this year to hacking into the US central bank, various private financial institutions and possessing stolen bank card and credit card numbers, officials said.
According to AFP, he also admitted to hacking into a Fed computer server and installing a malicious software code there. Lin, who is from Ipoh, travelled to the United States in October last year “for the purpose of selling stolen credit card and bank card numbers” but a purchaser was in fact an undercover US agent, according to prosecutors. When he was arrested, Lin held over 122,000 stolen bank card and credit card numbers.
