Ehud Tannenbaum, who used the computer hacker nom de guerre "The
Analyzer," was convicted yesterday by the Kfar Sava Magistrates Court
after striking a plea bargain deal with prosecutors. Tannenbaum, a 21
year old Hod Hasharon resident, confessed to offenses of conspiracy,
wrongful infiltration of computerized material, disruption of computer
use, and destroying evidence.
Tannenbaum's conviction comes as part of a plea bargain agreement
according to which Tannenbaum confessed to lesser charges than those
he faced in the original indictment. The plea bargain deal does not
relate to his sentence, which has not yet been determined.
The indictment charges that together with several other hackers,
Tannenbaum conspired in 1997 and early 1998 to commit various offenses
via the Internet. Tannenbaum obtained programs such as Trojan Horse
which facilitated illicit entry into classified computer systems; he
also upgraded the programs.
Tannenbaum admits that he used the Net illegally to infiltrate
computer systems operated by official American organizations,
including the Defense Department, the Air Force and the Navy.
Tannenbaum admitted that he perpetrated most of his hacking crimes
using his own home computer.
