Malwaretech twittert wieder

The judge said the defendant was not a danger to the community nor a flight risk and ordered him to remain in the US with GPS monitoring.

Leider geht aus dem Artikel nicht hervor, wie sie ihn gefunden haben. Sie haben wohl Chatlogs zwischen ihm und dem Mitangeklagten. Außerdem haben verdeckte Ermittler den Trojaner gekauft.
