Pakistani Hacker Sentenced 18 months in Prison due to Mutimillion Dollar ATM heists

Pakistani man "Imran Elahi" who was involve in two Multimillion-dollar ATM heists targeting debit card processors was sentenced in Brooklyn federal court on Friday to 18 months in prison.

Imran Elahi pleaded guilty last year to access device fraud and conspiracy, largely for his involvement in two precision strikes: a $9 million heist in 2008 involving RBS WorldPay and a $14 million hack in 2011 against Fidelity Information Services.

Investigators said these two incidents were similar to another massive heist for which 8 individuals were charged in May, 2013.

Elahi has helped investigators, so he might be released soon and sent back to Pakistan.
