Albert Gonzales, Cybercrime Kingpin Behind 130 Million Stolen Credit Cards, Indicted

Albert Gonzales, aged 28, believed by police to be one of the nation’s largest cybercrime kingpins, was indicted Monday along with two Russian accomplices for the largest hacking/identity theft caper in U.S. history.  Federal prosecutors allege that the trio stole data from 130 million credit and debit cards worldwide by hacking into the computer systems of major companies, including Hannaford Bros. supermarkets, 7-Eleven, and Heartland Payment Systems Inc., a credit-card processing company, between October 2006 and May 2008.
