Three-man gang arrested over hacking of a telecom company account



Personnel from the Criminal Investigations Department have arrested a three-man gang of Internet hackers - two Kuwaitis and an Egyptian in connection with the hacking of a telecom company account.The suspects were arrested after a complaint was filed by a local company that the hacking operation took place when the company was transferring money to one of the major local telecom companies and the hackers managed to steal about KD 80,000 from the telecom company.

The men during interrogations have admitted to the charge and said they began the operations by breaking into the account of one of the telecommunications companies and robbed small amounts to pay for bills, until they hacked the company’s account and stole money exceeding 120 thousand dinars by changing the path of remittances.The gang used what is known as electronic piracy to penetrate the data of the telecommunications company, and then initiated transactions with customers of these companies, and change the course of funds in the context of mutual transactions, and transferred to other account numbers with the names of other individuals, and then re-transferred the money to the accounts of one member of the gang.-A.T.
