TULSA, OKLA. — Federal prosecutors in Tulsa say two men are charged with conspiring to hack into computer systems of the Navy and more than 30 other government, business and university sites.

United States Attorney Danny C. Williams Sr. said Monday that 27-year-old Nicholas Paul Knight of Chantilly, Virginia, and 20-year-old Daniel Trenton Krueger of Salem, Illinois, were trying to steal identities, obstruct justice and damage a protected computer.

Williams says the Navy quickly discovered the breach and located the two suspects.

The case is being prosecuted in Tulsa because the Navy servers that were hacked are located in the city. The men allegedly hacked a system used to manage transfers for members of all branches of the military. The system stores personal information for 220,000 service members.

Knight was in the Navy.
