The Prosecutor's Office of Ecuador continues to gather the evidence that it must present to accuse Ola Bini of a possible computer crime, and some of them have already been published. On the eve of the deadline for the investigation, on August 29, prosecutor Fabián Chávez reformulated the charges against the Swede. Now he accuses him of violating article 234 of the Criminal Code, which is included in the "crimes against good living" section and which consists of "non-consensual access" to a computer system. The prosecutor wields the "screenshot" theory. A photo found on the Swedish cell phone that would prove, the Prosecutor's Office believes, that the Swede entered without permission a server of the National Telecommunications Corporation (CNT) that allowed a link between Petroecuador and the Senain in 2015, in full swing of the correato .
The "queen test" of the prosecutor, with which he also believes he can blame Marco Argüello, a systems engineer who worked with Bini, is a WhatsApp chat, in which the programmer communicates with Argüello and, supposedly, alerts him to the vulnerability of a computer system that the CNT had facilitated to make a link between Petroecuador and the Secretariat of Intelligence of correísmo, the Senain. In the chat, Bini would have sent a photo of the screen he saw (what is colloquially known as a "screenshot"), supposedly warning his partner, who was a CNT contractor, of the old interface and how vulnerable it turned out. At least this is the explanation given by the defense.

But the case of Ola Bini could take a new turn, since the Police would have found a new indication about the activities of the Swede, to which this portal had access. According to the document, "Ola Bini has thousands of devices controlled by Ecuadorian citizens, around 1400, between phones and computers." One of the evidence is that the Police would have managed to recover the hexadecimal signature used by the Swede, "determining the existence of a command and control center, belonging to Ola Bini." The hexadecimal signature is a code that digital files have, which can be revealed - and also modified - with simple programs available for free on the internet.
The police report warns that, allegedly, "Ecuador is targeted by computer attacks that may have to do with the group that works with Ola Bini."
