Philippine police arrest S.Korean for hacking telecom system

MANILA, Feb 08, 2013 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- A South Korean national and a Filipino suspect were arrested by police on Friday for hacking the system of a local telecommunication company which caused the firm to lose 3.4 million pesos (83,568 U.S. dollars).



Leonardo Espina, director of the National Capital Region Police Office, identified the suspects as Yooun Nayong, 37 and Carlo Dadulla, 21.

Police raided the house of Nayong and Dadulla in Mandaluyong City in Metro Manila, the Philippines' capital region.

Recovered from Nayong's possession were various equipment such as modems and other computer peripherals which allowed the suspects to make international calls on domestic rates.

Police are still looking for two other suspects including another South Korean national.
