Cops to find out if M'sian hacker arrested in US had accomplices


Kuala Lumpur (The Star/ANN) - The Malaysian police are working with their counterparts in the United States to ascertain if a Malaysian man arrested for hacking and selling stolen credit card numbers in the country had accomplices.

Inspector-General of Police Ismail Omar said they were also trying to ascertain if the man was operating in other countries as well.

He said he had ordered the Commercial Crime Department to liaise with the US police to obtain more information.

"We are cooperating with our counterparts and will take necessary action upon receiving a report from them," he said after attending a police programme at a hotel here yesterday.

Lin Mun Poo, 32, was arrested on Oct 21 in the United States and charged on Thursday with hacking into the system of a US central bank branch in Cleveland, Ohio, and stealing more than 400,000 credit card numbers within a month.

According to documents obtained from the US Justice Department, the man who hails from Ipoh, is an "extremely sophisticated and dangerous computer hacker" .

He allegedly made a career of compromising computer servers belonging to financial firms, defence contractors and major corporations. He then sold or traded the stolen information to others, according to US prosecutors.

He is accused of hacking into the high-security systems of the US Federal Reserve Bank and the Pentagon's security contractors.

He was caught in a New York diner by the US Secret Service on Oct 21 while allegedly selling stolen credit card numbers for US$1,000. He had arrived in the city just hours before his arrest.

Lin, who has no professional or family ties in the US, arrived at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport from Europe on a round-trip ticket. He had planned to leave Monday.

He was indicted in the US last Thursday by a grand jury on four charges, which included hacking into the central bank branch in Cleveland, Ohio.
