Hacker sentenced to 9 years prison after participating in cybercrime ring

He had purchased stolen credit card data and personal information from an international cybercrime ring. Cameron Harrison, is also known as “Kilobit”. He has been sentenced to 115 months in prison and 50.8 MILLION dollar in restitution.

Kilobit participated via the Carder.su domain. This domain is known to be a fraud-conducting group which had comprimised nearly 8000 people.

An undercover special agent discovered Harrison’s involvement in the ring after he purchased a counterfeit Georgia driver’s license from the agent. During their conversations, Harrison admitted to having been a vendor of counterfeit identifications in the now-defunct “ShadowCrew” marketplace.

Of the 55 people charged in “Operation Open Market,” which targeted Carder.su, 26, have been convicted and the rest are either fugitives or awaiting trial.
