STARING alluringly into the camera with dazzling blue eyes and a rather
daring outfit is the Russian student accused of a plot to defraud
British and US banks of millions.
Kristina Svechinskaya, 21, has been dubbed the "world's sexiest computer
hacker" after being charged with being part of a gang aiming to steal
$223 million. Wearing leather boots and skin-tight jeans, she wept
during a court appearance this week.
AdelaideNow reports she was expected to appear in court again yesterday,
charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud and false use of passports.
If convicted, she could be jailed for up to 40 years.
Thirty-seven people have been accused in New York over the alleged
Eastern European-based plan to use an internet virus to siphon money
from the online accounts of small businesses and individuals.
