An Algerian national is facing arraignment in connection with alleged federal crimes related to the "SpyEye" computer virus. The man was extradited from Thailand to face charges for distributing the virus.
The defendant, age 24, was indicted in late 2011 on 23 counts, including charges of conspiring to commit wire fraud and committing computer fraud. The man was apprehended in Thailand in January of this year, while he was reportedly traveling from Malaysia to Egypt. He was officially extradited on May 2.
