World's hottest female hacker appears in NYC court

Posted by STARR KESHET

Kristina Svechinskaya - who has been dubbed the "world's hottest female hacker" - recently appeared in a NYC courtroom to face charges of stealing $35,000 for the notorious Eastern European ZBot cyber-criminal gang.

According to the NY Observer, the crying Svechinskaya approached the bench wearing skin-tight jeans and slinky, calf-high boots. 



Sexy, eh? Definitely!

World's hottest female hacker appears in NYC courtStill, as Sophos senior security researcher Graham Cluley notes, the jury is still out on whether or not the fetching Svechinskaya is actually a bona fide hacker.

"Kristina has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud and one count of false use of passports. [Yet], that's not how I would define hacking," opined Cluley.

"[Yes], prosecutors claims that Svechinskaya was recruited to join a 'mule' organzation that had numbered over two dozen participants and had contact with computer hackers and individuals who could provide fake passports.

"[Nevertheless], there's nothing really there to suggest, even if she was proven guilty, that she's a hacker."

Fair enough.

But that isn't really the point of Kristina Svechinskaya or her photos, is it?
