    A 20 year-old man has been indicted for computer crimes by a federal court in Alaska. Evidence suggests that he could be linked to the Satori botnet that exploited a previously unknown bug in a Huawei router. If so, one of the most virulent botnets in recent times might have been engineered not by a sophisticated organized criminal or nation state actor, but by a relatively inexperienced dabbler who happened across a zero-day vulnerability. Kenneth Currin Schuchman of Vancouver, Washington, has been indicted in an Alaskan federal court on two charges.
