    An Algerian national who is allegedly part of the cybercrime consortium behind a powerful hacking software known as SpyEye appeared in an Atlanta courtroom in the US after a three-year manhunt ended with his extradition from Thailand. Hamza Bendelladj, known for years in underground computer forums simply as Bx1, was accused in a 23-count indictment of crimes including computer and bank fraud. The charges, unsealed yesterday, stem from his role in selling and supporting customised components for SpyEye, a banking Trojan that allows hackers to hijack victims' bank accounts as they logged on from their own computers.
