British hacker, Daniel Kaye, has been arraigned on US federal charges of access device fraud and money-laundering conspiracy. The defendant is accused of allegedly operating a dark market named ‘The Real Deal’ where hacking tools and stolen login credentials, including those for US government agencies, were sold. At the time of the indictment, the defendant was operating the dark market in Cyprus, from where he was extradited to the US; the case is being investigated by US, Cypriot, German, and UK authorities. US attorney Ryan K. Buchman stated that ‘individuals who break US law will face their day in court, regardless of where they reside’.
