A 27-year-old Brit who carried out cyber attacks on more than a hundred companies has to pay back 1 million euros in crypto currency to victims. That's what the BBC writes.

The man was sentenced to a ten-year and eight-month prison sentence for fraud after he attacked several companies such as Uber and Argos.

The man got access to financial data from tens of thousands of people via phishing emails. He sold that data on the dark web for bitcoins.

Police investigations revealed that the man had carried out cyber attacks on seventeen large companies. He also sold cannabis to customers and sold guides that explained how to carry out cyber attacks.

The man also used stolen credit card details to purchase goods, vacations and food. He has known guilt.
