U.S. indicts NASA hacker

A Swedish hacker has been indicted by a grand jury in San Francisco for breaking into U.S.-based NASA and Cisco Systems computers. The Swedish citizen, Philip Gabriel Pettersson, who uses the alias “Stakkato,” cannot be extradited from Sweden, but he can be tried in a Swedish court for the U.S. crimes, which took place in 2004, according to the Associated Press. He already has a conviction for hacking into Swedish universities in 2007. X CAM
