Russian pizza restaurant 'hacker' faces US trial

15 August 2016 Technology

The trial of a Russian man accused of orchestrating a hacking scheme that targeted US pizza restaurants is due to begin this week.

Prosecutors allege that Roman Seleznev, the son of a Russian MP, was a "master hacker" behind a plan which led to $170m (131m) of fraudulent purchases.

He is accused of hacking into a number of outlets in Washington state in order to steal credit card data.

However, his lawyers say the evidence is inadequate.

The prosecution's witness list includes the owners and managers of Mad Pizza, ZPizza, Village Pizza and Casa Mia, among other restaurants.
