Bail of $30,000 set for UK cyber expert Marcus Hutchins
#1
US prosecutors say a British computer expert has admitted to creating software that harvests bank details.
But Marcus Hutchins' own lawyer says he denies six charges of creating and distributing the Kronos malware.
The 23-year-old from Ilfracombe, Devon, who helped stall the WannaCry cyber-attack which hit the NHS, was arrested on Wednesday in Las Vegas.
He was granted $30,000 (£23,000) bail, but will spend the weekend in prison after not being able to pay on Friday.
As he left the courtroom Mr Hutchins was ordered to walk with his hands behind his back but he was not shackled.
No members of his family were present, but defence lawyer Adrian Lobo presented the judge with a bundle of letters.
She said they were from friends and relatives showing support for a client who had never been in trouble with the law in the US or the UK.

He confessed to writing and selling the Kronos malware: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-40833951

He's still trying to plead not guilty though.
