Ehud Tenenbaum agrees to be extradicted to U.S.

Kevin Martin of Calgary Sun reports that Ehud Tenenbaum, the hacker known as “The Analyzer” and who came to public attention years ago for hacking into into NASA, the Pentagon, the Israeili Parliament and Hamas, has agreed to waive extradition to face charges in the U.S. relating to credit card fraud and hacks of financial institutions.

Tenenbaum has already been linked to hacks of a number of financial institutions, and I’m actually hoping that as part of any deal or leniency negotiations, he will reveal exactly which financial institutions were compromised in the past year or so that we might not have heard about previously — or that the financial institutions themselves did not even recognize.
