US prosecutors say the three completed hacking missions for the UAE without a US license

Three former US intelligence agents admitted to violating US laws by carrying out electronic hacking operations on behalf of the UAE.

US prosecutors said the three had agreed to pay $1.7 million to settle charges of computer hacking, hacking electronic devices and violating export restrictions.

The spies worked for an unnamed company based in the UAE, and they allegedly hacked servers, computers and phones around the world.

There was no immediate statement from the three men, or the Emirati authorities.
