    JERUSALEM (February 9, 1999 5:17 p.m. EST http://www.nandotimes.com)  An
    Israeli teenager and four accomplices who hacked into Pentagon and NASA
    computer systems were indicted Tuesday by an Israeli court. 
    Ehud Tenenbaum, 18, and four others were charged with illegal entry into
    computers in the United States and Israel, including American and Israeli
    academic institutions and the Israeli parliament. 
    The indictment was submitted to the magistrates court in Kfar Sava, a
    suburb east of Tel Aviv. None of the defendants was present at the
    hearing, and Israeli courts spokesman Moshe Gorali said they would submit
    their pleas at a later date. 
    Tenenbaum's alleged accomplices were identified as Guy Fleisher, Ariel
    Rosenfeld, Barak Abutbul and Rafael Ohana. Their ages were not given, but
    the indictment said they were all born in 1979. 
    The defendants face a maximum sentence of three years in prison if
    convicted. None are in custody. 
    Tenenbaum, who used the name "The Analyzer" on the Internet, was the group
    leader and tutored the others in unauthorized penetration of computer
    systems, police spokesman Uzi Sanduri said. 
    His activities came to light last year when the FBI said two California
    juveniles who had illegally penetrated Pentagon computers told authorities
    they had been trained by Tenenbaum. 
    The FBI, the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the
    Office of the Inspector General of NASA assisted Israel in the
