The alleged cyber attacks occurred in 2008 and 2009 against the U.S. and Interpol sites. The manhunt for the hacker finally ended earlier this week with the help of French and American authorities. The suspect, known online as “Splitter,” was arrested at his home in Athens, Greece. Police raided his home and found a homemade incendiary device, 130 fake credit cards, and €7,850 ($11,500) and $300 (€205) in cash hidden in a hollowed-out book. The teen faces charges of computer fraud, forgery, illegal violation of privacy, and illegal weapons possession.
Police cybercrime and anti-terrorism divisions are involved in the investigation, which also will examine possible links between the suspect and local terrorist groups that have carried out bombings in the past, mostly targeting Greek banks and government agencies.
