Another hacker has been arrested in India for his alleged participation in what's considered the largest data heist in U.S. history, Infoworld reports.

Sergey Valeryvich Storchark, along with 10 other men, were charged in August 2008 with hacking into nine U.S. retailers. Once inside, the hackers allegedly stole and then sold tens of millions of credit card numbers

According to authorities, Storchark is believed to be one of the resellers of the stolen credit cards. He faces a single count of conspiracy to traffic in unauthorized access devices.

"He was pretty well connect at one point, so I think he's a significant player," an anonymous law enforcement official told Infoworld.
