Dark Web Vendor Gets 50 Months Jail For ID Theft

Minnesota resident Aaron Glende aka IcyEagle caught selling stolen bank details on AlphaBay market.

A resident of Minnesota has been sentenced to 50 months in prison for identity theft and selling personal data of victims on the Dark Web cybercrime marketplace AlphaBay, says the US Department of Justice (DoJ).

Between November 2015 and May 2016, Aaron James Glende was reportedly found operating on AlphaBay under the name IcyEagle, with 300 listings advertising stolen bank logins and other confidential details.

A DoJ release says an undercover FBI agent, posing as a buyer, tracked Glende down on the Dark Web, where all types of stolen goods are sold under hidden identities. When arrested, Glende was said to be in possession of 944 stolen bank account usernames and passwords, 386 credit card numbers, 123 bank account numbers, and more.

For details, read DoJ release.

Prison Terms
Guy gets 50 months.  Time off for good behaviour?  Do not think 2 years is enough.  Hope there is a long probation/parole time which forbids any contact with the Internet.

Sentencing Calculation
Very interested in how they are calculating the sentence for these types of crimes..not criticizing, just genuinely curious. Will it get more severe in the future, or more lenient? Do you all think 50 months was appropriate?
