    2,500 corporations in US had phones hacked

    International Phone Hacking Ring Busted; Stole $55 Million Worth of Calls.

    The ring had been operating for more than four years and had hacked into phone systems belonging to more than 2,500 corporations in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. According to the U.S. Attorney’s office in New Jersey, which is handling the U.S. case, the ring sold 12 million minutes worth of time on the company networks, valued at more than $55 million in charges.

    U.S. authorities wouldn’t discuss the terrorism-related allegations. But according to Italian news reports, Mohammad Zamir, 40, the manager of a phone center in Brescia, Italy, who is suspected of financing the hacking, allegedly sent more than half a million dollars to an Islamic charity run by a brother-in-law of Osama bin Laden. The brother-in-law was suspected of funding Muslim extremists in Southeast Asia.
