Twin brothers sentenced for hacking State Department

“A district judge on Oct. 2 sentenced twin brothers Muneeb and Sohaib Akhter to prison for, among other things, conspiring to hack into State Department computer systems to obtain passport and visa information.

Sohaib used his position as a State Department contractor to access computer systems with the personal information of ‘dozens of coworkers, acquaintances, a former employer and a federal law enforcement agent investigating his crimes,’ according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia. Muneeb and others helped Sohaib try to install a surveillance device inside a State Department building, authorities said.
