The allegations against Pinto so far seemed to suggest his business model was to steal/hack information and sell it to the highest bidder, including blackmailing the victims. Based on what has been published in Portugal the case seems very strong. He even hacked into the police officials who were investigating him. The City emails are a tiny fraction of the Footy Leaks haul which apparently includes hundreds of millions of caches of data. I don't think City's emails are even part of the 90 charges laid against Pinto.It probably was him acting alone, and there are many cases of this where the target has been government(s) with all the cyber security precautions that entails. I don’t get the impression that hacking into any City information system was/is all that difficult, and I know of no other major, multi-million pound organisation where people leave their jobs and their log in credentials are not stopped, which is supposedly how Liverpool got in.
The quills need sharpening.For those few posters who seem the most knowledgeable on this subject @projectriver @Prestwich_Blue - what would the main reasoning for the final judgment still not being released be?
To go from a couple of days to well over a week, will there be any significance or is it likely nothing more than sitting the I’s and crossing the T’s ?
