A Dunedin man was remanded on bail this morning after admitting two charges of interfering with a computer system and one charge of causing data to be deleted.

His lawyer, Judith Ablett-Kerr QC told the Dunedin District Court that the man – whose name and employer’s name was suppressed - is disputing both the extent of the damage done and the number of times the attacks took place. She requested a separate hearing on the facts. Judge Gary MacAskill remanded the man on bail until April 5 when a date will be set for such a hearing.

Police told the court the amount of reparation being sought by an Oregon, US-based e-commerce company was over $US450,000, after the defendant attacked its computer systems in late 2003.
