eBay Database Romanian Hacker Stays In Custody

The court rejected as ungrounded the appeal of Vlad Constantin Duiculescu, for whom the Bucharest Court last week issued a 29-day preventive arrest warrant.
Duiculescu’s lawyer said in court the preventive arrest is not justified, as his client’s actions did not lead to damages caused to eBay clients, but to the company, which had to reinforce its security system following the attacks.
"I broke into the system to show that I can," Duiculescu told judges.
The hacker was arrested by organized crime prosecutors on April 17.
On April 19, 2005, the US-Secret Service sent Romanian authorities a notice on the internet sale of an application containing the source code of the eBay login page, which required users to enter usernames and passwords.
Following investigations, it was found that eBay users were being redirected to fake websites. Investigators identified over 270 such websites, seven of which were linked to Duiculescu.
