    A 20-year-old Russian hacker has been arrested after allegedly
    breaking into the computer network of a New York bank and extorting
    money in exchange for not releasing sensitive customer information,
    Moscow police said Wednesday.
    On Jan. 15, police detained the man in Surgut, said Olga Dumalkina, a
    Moscow police spokeswoman. Police said a bank in New York state paid
    him $10,000 to a bank in Surgut, but estimated he caused $250,000 in
    damages. The suspect faces up to 17 years in jail.
