Spanish judge indicts 9 persons for cyber fraud

MADRID (AP) — A Spanish judge charged nine people with fraud Sunday for allegedly participating in the theft of $45 million after a massive hacking of a bank’s card payments system.

The judge said there was evidence the suspects belonged to an international criminal organization that also laundered money and took part in credit card fraud.

Velasco said the cash extractions were perpetrated on a global scale and are linked to eight hackers in the United States who penetrated the security system of a company that handled an Omani bank’s card payments operations.
