Albert Gonzalez is a cyber-crook. He had a website that specialized in selling the data bases of stolen credit and debit card numbers. After his arrest, he accepted a deal from the U.S. Secret Service to become a paid informant. While working for the government, Gonzalez “hacked into 180 million accounts, stealing untold millions in the biggest credit-card theft in history.”

A thief with an unconverted nature remains a thief. Gonzalez is serving two concurrent 20-year sentences and if he had access to a computer would probably continue to hack accounts.
