United States: three Russians confessed to cyber-fraud

The total amount of damage from the actions of Russians is $5 million

The US Department of Justice reported that three Russian citizens, Timur Safin, Dmitry Fedoseev and Kristina Gerasimova, and Belarusian citizen Sergey Potapov admitted their guilt in cyber-fraud with credit and debit cards.

The total amount of damage from the actions of Russians is $5 million. Attackers used unregistered and stolen bank cards. Safin, Potapov and Fedoseev face up to 12 years in prison, Gerasimova - seven years.

This is not the Ministry of Justice's first accusation against hackers from Russia in recent months. In March, US authorities charged the employee of FSB Information Security Center Dmitry Dokuchaev and his boss Igor Sushchin, who, according to the Ministry of Justice, hired two hackers: Russian Alexey Belan and Canadian citizen Karim Baratov to participate in the cyberattack on Yahoo!.⁠
