Marcus Hutchins, a 23-year-old British security researcher and a "hero" of Stoping WannaCry cyber-attack facing trail in United State was forced into malware confession, lawyers have claimed.

In early August 2017, FBI agents in Las Vegas arrested him on suspicion of authoring and/or selling “Kronos,” a strain of malware designed to steal online banking credentials. Hutchins has admitted during interrogation that he created and sold the Kronos malware but he did not plead guilty to all the charges against him. 

His lawyers have argued in a document filed in court on Friday that he had likely been subject to surveillance leading up to his arrest in August and therefore agents knew that he was exhausted and intoxicated at the time.
