    Hacker Ehud Tenenbaum has pleaded guilty in connection to charges of fraud that netted millions of dollars from banks in Indiana, Florida, Texas and California, according to the U.S. Attorney's office in New York. Tenenbaum, also known as "The Analyzer," has a long record of malicious behavior, and not only in the United States. Before pleading in this case last week, he voluntarily submitted to extradition from Canada, where he had been arrested last year in another financial fraud case. He also gained notoriety 10 years ago when he broke into NASA and Pentagon computer networks while living in Israel, authorities said.
