Syrian hacker extradited to the United States from Germany

“An alleged hacker with the Syrian Electronic Army, a group that supports the Syrian government, has been extradited to the United States from Germany on charges of conspiracy linked to a hacking-related extortion scheme, U.S. officials said Monday.

Peter Romar, 36, was put on a plane to Dulles International Airport on Monday, the officials said. He is expected to appear in federal court for the Eastern District of Virginia on Tuesday.

Romar, a Syrian national who was living in Waltershausen, Germany, worked with members of the Syrian Electronic Army to extort money from victims, including online companies in the United States, according to a criminal complaint unsealed in March.”
