World’s hottest female hacker appears in NYC court

09 May

Kristina Svechinskaya – who has been dubbed the “world’s hottest female hacker” – recently appeared in a NYC courtroom to face charges of stealing $35,000 for the notorious Eastern European ZBot cyber-criminal gang.

According to the NY Observer, the crying Svechinskaya approached the bench wearing skin-tight jeans and slinky, calf-high boots.

Sexy, eh? Definitely!

Still, as Sophos senior security researcher Graham Cluley notes, the jury is still out on whether or not the fetching Svechinskaya is actually a bona fide hacker.

“Kristina has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud and one count of false use of passports. [Yet], that’s not how I would define hacking,” opined Cluley.

“[Yes], prosecutors claims that Svechinskaya was recruited to join a ‘mule’ organzation that had numbered over two dozen participants and had contact with computer hackers and individuals who could provide fake passports.

“[Nevertheless], there’s nothing really there to suggest, even if she was proven guilty, that she’s a hacker.”

Fair enough.

But that isn’t really the point of Kristina Svechinskaya or her photos, is it?
