Turkish hacker gets 334 years in jail for stealing credit card data

A 26-year-old Turkish hacker is to serve a total of 334 years in jail for bank fraud – including stealing the data of 54 credit cards – according to a report in the Turkish newspaper the Daily Sabah.

Onur Kopçak was sentenced at the weekend to 135 years for stealing the details of 11 credit cards by a Turkish court. He will have to serve this sentence on top of the 199-year term he received in 2013 for carrying out similar crimes.

In his earlier case, Kopçak was convicted along with 11 other young hackers after 43 bank customers complained about their credit card details being stolen.

Kopçak is serving out his term in a prison in Osmaniye, a region close to Turkey's border with Syria.
