A former US Navy sysadmin who worked in an aircraft carrier’s nuclear reactor department has been charged with hacking into government networks using the USN’s own computers. Prosecutors have alleged that Nicholas Paul Knight, 27, of Chantilly, Virginia, and his co-accused, 20-year-old Daniel Trenton of Salem, Illinois, were leading members of a blackhat group called Team Digi7al. Court papers seen by The Register describe Team Digi7al as a “criminal association organised to hack protected computers, steal sensitive and private information, make unauthorised public disclosures of that stolen… information and commit various other crimes related to its hacking activities”.
