According to Torrent Freak, the 27-year-old co-founder of file-sharing site The Pirate Bay was arrested in connection to the alleged hacking of Swedish IT company Logica, which ended with the leakage of some 9,000 Swedes' tax numbers.
Apart from Svartholm, two other individuals have been previously arrested in Sweden on suspicion of having participated in the attack in 2010. One of them is a member of Piratbyran, the Swedish organization that was involved in the founding of The Pirate Bay.
Svartholm is currently detained at the Cambodian's interior ministry’s counter terrorism department, and will be deported to Sweden in due course.
