Hackers acquire Gates' credit card info

Concerns over Internet security heightened over the weekend with the arrest of a hacker who reportedly was able to obtain Microsoft chairman Bill Gates’ credit card information.

Authorities say 18-year old Raphael Gray of Wales hacked into nine e-commerce sites, stealing credit card details for more than 26,000 accounts in the U.S., Canada, Thailand, Japan and Britain.

Gray – who along with an accomplice reportedly e-mailed the credit information, including Gates’, to NBCi, a subsidiary of the NBC broadcasting group – claimed that he “just wanted to prove how insecure these sites are.”
