Czech police arrests Russian suspected in U.S. hacking attacks

Czech police arrests Russian suspected in U.S. hacking attacksCzech police in cooperation with the FBI have detained an internationally wanted Russian hacker who may have attacked targets in the U.S., police spokesman David Schon told journalists on Tuesday.

Interpol had issued a so-called Red Notice for the man, seeking his arrest.

After his arrest, the man collapsed and was hospitalised. A court has remanded him into custody pending the decision to extradite him to the U.S., Schon said.

The hacker was in the Czech Republic along with his girl-friend. The police caught him in a Prague hotel.

"Thanks to a rapid flow of information, the man was detained 12 hours after the first operative information was received,"
Schon said.
