On Sept. 21, Nathan Wyatt pleaded guilty to extorting companies across the world as a member of an infamous hacking group known as The Dark Overlord (TDO). He was sentenced to five years in prison and must pay $1,467,048 in damages to victims.
TDO is a hacker organization that targets large companies, steals their personal and confidential information, and then demands large sums of money. TDO initially gained notoriety through the sale of stolen medical records on the dark web. TDO has also targeted well-known groups, including Netflix, Disney and ABC. Wyatt was part of this group since 2016, the year in which the events related to Wyatt’s sentence occurred.
