Russian Hacker Admits $10M Heist

27-year-old Yevgeny Anikin was a member of an international hacking ring that copied Royal Bank of Scotland customer account information and removed cash from them out of bank machines across Europe, Asia and the United States.  Of course, he is now remorseful, admits his guilt, and is asking for leniency after buying 2 condos and a luzury car with his ill gotten gains.

Another member of the hacker ring was sentenced by a St. Petersburg court to six years in prison in September 2010.
