A former US National Security Agency (NSA) contractor was sentenced to nine years in prison by a US court for stealing huge amounts of confidential data from US intelligence agencies over more than two decades, amounting to 50 terabytes of information.

According to engadget, in 2016, the federal police arrested “Harold T. Martin,” the contractor of the US Security Agency, and reportedly included an attack piracy aimed at breaking into foreign computer networks, but the final verdict came by the judge Richard Bennett of the United States, former NSA contractor Martin was sentenced to 9 years in prison, although the case had ended but Martin did not answer all questions.
