Bosnian hacker collected, distributed massive amounts of illegal porn

A Bosnian national, identified only by the initials E.S., has been arrested by agents of the Bosnian Federal Police’s cybercrime unit following the discovery of a massive amount of pornographic images and videos of children on his computer.

According to the press release (via Google Translate) issued by the Federal Police, its law enforcement agents have found over 1,5 million of pornographic images and 10,000 videos depicting sexual child abuse on his computer and external hard discs which they confiscated in a raid on his house.

The suspect allegedly acquired this unbelievably huge amount of material from the Internet and from a still unknown number of foreign nationals through a number of years – for his personal use and for further distribution.

He has also allegedly used “highly sophisticated computer programs” to access e-mail accounts of so far unidentified U.S. citizens, from which he selectively copied and stored pornographic material, bank account and credit card information, and login credentials for accessing pornographic websites.

He also used the gathered information to blackmail the owners of these accounts into giving him money in exchange for not notifying U.S. law enforcement. He allegedly earned $3,000 with this scheme.

He stands accused of abusing children for pornographic ends, unauthorized access to protected systems and online electronic databases, blackmail, and the production, acquisition, possession, sale and sharing of instruments for forgery.
