Yeah, it’s serious. Even worse than a “mere” lawsuit, some of these hackers are actually in custody!
one of them has been deported from the Dominican Republic, and appeared on October 2d in federal court, in New Jersey,
one from France: the United States will seek his extradition to stand trial in the United States,
