US arrests one of the seven Megaupload suspects




Andrus Nõmm, a programmer who worked for the cyber locker service Megaupload, was arrested in the United States. Nõmm is one of the seven defendants in the Megaupload case. Possibly the programmer has signed a deal with the US authorities.

The 36-year-old Nõmm, from Estonia, was arrested in 2012 in the Netherlands, but was released pending the hearing of a US extradition request. The New Zealand Herald reports , however, that the programmer in the US state of Virginia has been arrested in connection with the Megaupload case.
