Top Argentine Court Wants Law Against Hackers
Argentine law covers only crimes on "people, things and animals" but not cyber assaults, according to the ruling.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court said the case did "harm to the administration of justice" in a formal request it sent to the government for an anti-hacking law that would send perpetrators to prison.
The "X-Team" was also accused of posting on the court's site photos of the murdered magazine journalist, Jose Luis Cabezas, whose case has been a cause celebre among groups claiming top Argentine officials cover up human rights abuses.
Cabezas was found dead and his body charred into blackened bones during a 1997 probe into Alfredo Yabran, a business tycoon with links to then-President Carlos Menem. Yabran later committed suicide after a judge ordered his arrest.
