Here is a video and a couple of shots of Vladuz the alleged eBay hacker in his apartment, and being led into a Romanian police station.
The big $64 question is, did eBay bag the guilty person? Or pin it on another hacker for a corporate public relations spin?
Vladuz, the notorious hacker who repeatedly accessed off-limits parts of eBay’s network and then publicly bragged about it, has been arrested, the online auctioneer says.
The hacker was arrested by Romanian law enforcement officials with the help of the US Secret Service, the FBI and eBay’s global fraud investigation team, eBay said. The company wouldn’t discuss additional details, and representatives from the Secret Service and the FBI couldn’t be reached for comment.
According to Romanian news reports here, Vlad Constantin Duiculescu, 20, was arrested in a communist-era housing project in Bucharest. A court in that city remanded the suspect in custody for an initial 29 days.
