On several occasions, we have talked about specific online attacks such as phishing, in which hackers try to trick us for sensitive or confidential information regarding the infected computers and later try to take their benefit. One of the tasks repeated every day and that, in turn, is increasingly getting targeted by the authorities worldwide.
In 2013 Onur Kopcak and 11 hackers were convicted of fraudulent schemes. The hacker created an interface similar to the sites of banking institutions and, with their help, got the information from the card owners. For the crime in 2013, the cyber-criminal was sentenced to 199 years, 7 months, and 10 days after 43 cardholders complained about losing money from the accounts.

One of the most famous campaigns, ‘phishing’, with the related hacking a guy two years ago, managed to fool a lot of people into getting their bank details. The plot was part of a scheme of credit card fraud from which Onur Kopcak used the data from the bank of those victims to carry out fraudulent transactions.
Well, yesterday, the young cybercriminal received a record sentence for all their acts amounting to 334 years in prison. It is said that Onur Kopcak had been convicted of one side to 199 years in jail, but yesterday he was totaling other cases reports caused to additional 135 years more. Hence, it builds up a final sentence of 334 years, thanks to the campaign phishing with which he managed to trick many people.
As reported by one of the unnamed reporters, the young hacker is accused of several crimes, including identity fraud, fake or phishing websites, and more. And it is that during this year, many customers of different banks were warned of such maneuvers for which he was persecuted to its location and was initially sentenced to 199 years, 7 months, and 10 days in jail.
But research has continued, as customer complaints were ongoing, a retrial that ended yesterday added another 135 years in prison for his initial sentence coming to fruition. Therefore, it has a total sentence of 334 years of imprisonment, undoubtedly the most significant pain that a hacker has received in this type of cybercrime; as far as we have seen, stricter penalties for these acts are not used to exceed 20 years in prison.
It seems that crime through the network could begin to harden seriously since it is something that we are exposed to almost every day, which may be many victims of these scams in no time.
