World's hottest female hacker appears in NYC court

  • 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!

    Still, 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?
