This event changed my life. “In Feb 2017, a medical provider in Uruguay got hacked. The attacker stole a bunch of patient records and then used that to conduct extortion on the provider. They said they’d release the records of everyone with HIV unless they get $60,000 worth of bitcoin.The medical provider worked with the police to catch and arrest Alberto Hill, a 41 year old Uruguayan. Alberto had a ton of hacker paraphernalia and electronic devices at his house.We’re talking dozens of credit cards, a bunch of hardware bitcoin wallets, thumb drives galore with hacking tools and viruses on them, a credit card writer with a bunch of blank cards, numerous hard drives, computers, routers, printers, and an anonymous mask.Alberto Hill admitted to hacking into the medical provider, admitted to owning all this equipment, and even admitted to the the police he sent the email. But he claims he’s innocent. Listen to his story and you be the judge on whether he’s guilty or not.Guest
Special thanks to Alberto Hill for sharing his story. Alberto is trying to change legislation in Uruguay and needs your help to do it. He would like you to visit his Change.org campaign to see if you can help.”
