Cleveland Federal Reserve Hacked

Saturday, November 20, 2010 - 1:51 PM
From Bank Info Security:
A 32-year-old Malaysian man was arrested shortly after his arrival last month at John F. Kennedy airport in New York City. His crime? Authorities say he hacked into the Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank and several other computer systems, including a defense contractor.

At the end of the article it states that the Malaysian man faces a "maximum of 10 years if convicted on all charges." That doesn't seem like much of a penalty.
