A Russian hacker who at one time gained control over as many as 100,000 computers globally via botnets he created pleaded guilty Wednesday in a Connecticut court to computer crimes and identity theft.

A plea agreement also says that Burkov is eligible to be deported after he serves any sentence and that he will not contest removal from the country.

A statement of facts filed in the case says that Burkov operated Cardplanet from October 2011 through at least August 2013 and that the site sold stolen card information from virtually all major U.S. payment cards.

Burkov also offered a fee-based "checker" service to allow buyers to instantly validate the stolen card information, the document says.

The other website was called "Direct Connection." Prosecutors said that was a secure forum for "elite cybercriminals" to meet and plan crimes.
