Philippines Hacker Ring Said to Have Financed Lashkar E-Taiba

A ring of terrorist hackers busted by Philippines police this week may be linked to a hacking cell indicted in the United States in 2009.

An indictment posted on Internet Haganah notes that a militant named M.Z. based in Brescia, Italy, was a key part of a phone-hacking operation that involved three foreign nationals living in the Philippines. The three were slated for extradition to the U.S., but it's unclear what their current status is.

According to the latest story, Muhammad Zamir, a militant living in Brescia, originally ran the Filipino hacking cell disrupted this week. Philippines police said Zamir's activities helped finance Pakistani militant group Lashkar e-Taiba and specifically the Mumbai attack.
