Marcus Hutchins, a British cybersecurity researcher, is set to face four more charges related to the malware named Kronos which he is being accused of creating.

A new court filing revealed that Hutchins may have been involved in creating another malware in 2012 called UPAS Kit which can be installed silently to collect personal information, bypassing the anti-virus software.  

Hutchins denied all charges, with his legal camp saying that the new indictment was “meritless”. He also asked his Twitter followers for financial assistance for his legal fees.
