U.S. Hacker Gets 20 Years [news.bbc.co.uk]
Computer expert Albert Gonzalez has been jailed for 20 years in the US for his part in stealing more than 130 million credit and debit card numbers.
The judge who sentenced him described the case as "the largest and most costly example of computer hacking in US history".
Gonzalez, from Miami, pleaded guilty at his trial in September 2009.
He was accused, along with two Russian co-conspirators, of hacking into retailer payment systems.
