Employees of the Russian MIA Department K stopped the activities of an organized group that was stealing money from bank accounts of a number of Russian organizations using a Trojan. This was reported to Rosbalt by Irina Volk, the official representative of the Russian MIA.
According to her, in order to spread the Trojans, the hackers created a network of phishing sites, carried out mass mailings, as well as used social engineering techniques that allowed them to infect the computers of more than 20 organizations in different cities with malware.
Irina Volk pointed out that the total damage caused by the group exceeded 100 million rubles. The hackers were four Russian citizens residing in the territory of Moscow and Moscow Region. Within the framework of the criminal investigation, operatives conducted 19 searches.
The court has sentenced one of the suspects to custody, the rest have been put under house arrest.
