Ardit Ferizi is a computer hacker who gave the Islamic State group personal data of more than 1,300 U.S. government and military personnel.
With the stolen data, the terrorist group compiled a 30-page kill list containing the names of roughly 1,350 US government personnel.
A link to the list was tweeted by Junaid Hussain, a self-proclaimed Islamic State cyber army leader.
The hacker traveled to Malaysia to get better bandwidth access to carry out his exploits.
From Singapore, Ferezi was extradited to the United States, where he signed a plea agreement in which he admitted to hacking and providing material support to terrorists.
The native of Kosovo is the first person convicted in the United States of both computer hacking and terrorism charges.
He is currently held at a federal prison in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, and is scheduled for release in 2032 if he gets credit for good behavior.
