Two Israeli individuals alleged to have developed an industrial espionage trojan that helped companies spy on their competitors were indicted this weekend in the Tel Aviv District Court for a series of computer crimes.
Ruth Brier-Haephrati, 28, and her 44-year-old husband, Michael Haephrati, were extradited from London in January, and are said to have confessed to most of the charges against them. According to the indictment, the couple managed the firm Target-Eya.
Michael Haephrati developed the spyware trojan horse, while his wife, marketed it to several private investigators who bought the code and installed it onto the computers of its clients' rivals.
