Canadian police have cuffed a notorious Israeli hacker over allegations of financial fraud, seven years after he avoided jail after being convicted of hacking into Pentagon systems.

If they do ever actually catch a proper hacker I'll eat my bits.

One of these guys walks around tripwire like it isn't there.
Re: Tam Lin and extradition
Huh? What schoolbooks do you have? He was arrested in Israel, no extradition sought. This time he has been arrested in Canada. Now despite obviously close relations between the US and both those countries they scarcely compare to the principality of Wales trying to extradite someone from Great Britain.
Paris cos maybe she thinks Canada is in the US too.

The Anal-iser was always a no-talent assclown and vapid media whore to boot. Now we know he's a thief as well. What a moron. Castrate this man for the good of humanity.
