Romanian hackers busted with half a MILLION credit cards from Australia | Libertés Numériques |

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) are cock-a-hoop this week, announcing the bust of a gang of Romanian credit card hackers. According to reports, 200 Romanian cops pounced on 36 locations, detained 16 people and ultimately arrested seven of them.

The carding crew had allegedly made off with half a million Aussie credit card numbers, racking up charges averaging more than $1000 each on 30,000 of them.

At this point, I'm sure you're thinking what I am. "Half a MILLION cards from Australia. And the crooks didn't even need to leave Romania. How could THAT have happened?"
