U.S. judge in Las Vegas set a $30,000 bail on Friday for a well-known British cyber security researcher accused of advertising and selling malicious code used to pilfer banking and credit card information.

Axar.az reports citing Reuters, Marcus Hutchins, 23, gained celebrity status within the hacker community in May when he was credited with neutralizing the global "WannaCry" ransomware attack.

His attorney, Adrian Lobo, told reporters Hutchins would not be released on Friday because the clerk's office for the court closed 30 minutes after his hearing concluded, leaving his defense team not enough time to post the bail.
