Bo Zhang

IRL Name: 
Bo Zhang

Bo Zhang is a Chinese computer programmer who pleaded guilty to stealing software code from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in a case that raised cyber-security concerns when he was arrested. The FBI questioned him when he admitted the theft but did not arrest him until January 2012 because congressional investigators became concerned that the New York Fed was vulnerable to cyber attacks after the arrest.


According to an April 2012 plea agreement with Zhang, prosecutors recommended he be sentenced to one to 1-1/2 years in prison, much less than the potential 10-year maximum term the theft charge carries.

Zhang also pleaded guilty to one charge of immigration fraud. He is currently free on $200,000 bail and is due to be sentenced on October 1 2012.
