Marcus Hutchins, the British researcher famous for halting the spread of the devastating WannaCry malware, has pleaded "not guilty" to accusations he created another notorious piece of malware: Kronos, Motherboard reported on Monday.

Hutchins, who normally lives in the UK, has been detained in the US since early August after the Def Con hacking conference in Las Vegas. He was accused by the US government of creating and distributing Kronos, sending shockwaves through the online security industry. 

According to Motherboard, he was released on bail, and entered his plea at a hearing in Milwaukee. 

Hutchins' new lawyer, Brian Klein, said his client was not guilty of all six charges of creating and distributing Kronos. 

Up until now, Hutchins was prevented from accessing the internet, had to surrender his passport, and needed to be monitored by GPS. Now he's permitted to leave the state, though not the country, and live elsewhere until his trial.

Motherboard reporter Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai tweeted the first photograph of Hutchins since his arrest:

Replying to @lorenzoFB and 2 others

Prosecution and @MalwareTechBlog lawyers agreed he will be allowed to reside in Los Angeles. Still unclear why the hell we're in Milwaukee.
