The British security expert hailed a hero for helping shut down a global cyber attack admitted in a police interview he created a code which harvests bank details and "indicated" that he sold it, a prosecutor told his US court hearing.

The 23-year-old, who found a "kill-switch" that derailed the attack that crippled the NHS in May, was granted bail under strict conditions that he pay 30,000 dollars (£23,000) and remain in the US.

Hutchins and his unnamed co-defendant, who is still at large, were caught in a sting operation when undercover officers brought the code, the prosecutor added.

Other evidence comes from chat logs between him and a co-defendant during which Hutchins complains about the money he received for the sale, Mr Cowhig said.
