Pentagon hacker granted bail in Calgary

Date: September 26, 2008

CALGARY - A hacker who once burrowed into the Pentagon's systems was released on $30,000 bail Thursday, after being charged with hacking into a Calgary company's computer system and stealing $1.8 million.

Ehud Tenenbaum is a 29-year-old Israeli national who was living in Montreal at the time of the offence. He is accused of breaking into the computer system at Direct Cash Management Inc. in Calgary in December 2007 to boost the balances of prepaid debit cards sold by Direct Cash.

Police claim the cash was withdrawn with the help of three accomplices, mainly from bank machines in Montreal, although the withdraws occurred throughout Canada and abroad.
