Reshuffle in FSB ISC after arrest of Shaltay-Boltay
Former Information Security Center Head Sergey Mikhailov and his subordinate, Dmitry Dokuchaev, are detained for information’s leak to hackers.
The FSB Information Security Center (ISC) began a management reshuffle in connection with the criminal prosecution of a hacker group Shaltay-Boltay (Humpty Dumpty). So, Jahongir Yuldashev appointed in place of the arrested Head of the ISC 2nd operational control Sergey Mikhailov. RNS sources clarified that Yuldashev is listed as the Acting Headcting "for quite some time." It is known that a new, but temporary, Head works in the ISC at least since 2003.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, Sergey Mikhailov and another ISC officer Dmitry Dokuchaev were detained in December 2016 on suspicion of High Treason (Art. 275 of the Criminal Code). According to sources, earlier arrested Vladimir Anikeev (Lewis), the founder of Shaltay-Boltay, gave testimony against FSB officers. Presumably, it was Mikhail, who oversaw the hacker group, on which he was able to come out at the beginning of 2016. He, being one of the key employees of the FSB ISC, supplied hackers information for blackmailing and extorting money from high-ranking officials and businessmen. In case of refusal to pay victims' personal information, correspondence and other data sold for Bitcoins through Ukraine. Note that in the framework of the case head of the computer incidents investigation department of Kaspersky Lab Ruslan Stoyanov was also arrested.
The income of the former Head and co-owner of Kolmar coal company for 2017 and the first three months of 2018 runs at 846 thousand rubles ($13.500). In late April, the authorities of the Kemerovo region reported that during the reporting period, Tsivilin did not earn a penny.
The lawyer of Marina Semynina, the civil-law wife of former Acting Head of the MIA General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption (GUEBiPK) Department ‘T’ Dmitry Zakharchenko, who is accused of a number of corruption crimes, intends to sue the officers of the Federal Bailiff Service.
