Lauri Love, the Brit who beat US attempts to extradite him over accusations of hacking, is suing Blighty's National Crime Agency (NCA) to get back computing gear seized in 2013 as part of the case against him.

More than five years ago, Love was indicted across the pond over allegations he hacked thousands of PCs in America and other countries, inserting backdoors into networks with the aim of circling back at a later date to pilfer confidential data.

It was alleged Love had breached the security of NASA, the US military, and other government agencies. The following year, 2014, Uncle Sam added the Federal Reserve to that list.
