Mr. Yang confessed that he was planning to set up his own exchange firm, working with two other Chinese partners to help improve the functioning of the Zhangjiagang Exchange in China.

The US Department of Justice said in a report that more that more than 10,000 files containing sources codes from CME were stolen.

“The source code and algorithms that made up the supporting programs were proprietary and confidential business property of CME Group,” the report said.
