Kostroma hacked accounts of half a million Russians


In the Kostroma region, a hacker will face trial, using viruses to steal logins and passwords from almost 620,000 accounts and electronic wallets of Internet users, the regional prosecutor's office informs.
Hackers stole data from 57 million customers and Uber drivers

According to the investigation, in 2016-2017, a 27-year-old resident of the Kostroma district center Bui found and downloaded spyware on the Internet to neutralize the means of protecting computer information. These programs he used to obtain registration data - logins and passwords from various Internet services.

- In total, he got access to almost 620 thousand accounts of Internet users. All services provide an opportunity for users to deposit money. For example, a Bui resident was given access to electronic purses of the PayPal payment system, accounts of the eBay payment system, Skype and others, the prosecutor's office said.

The ostrich did not have time to empty the electronic wallets of Russians: in this, they interfered with the FSB officers. Against men, they brought a case under Article 273 of the Criminal Code (the creation, use, and distribution of malicious computer programs). His investigation has just ended. In the near future, the accused of hacking will appear before the court.
If the guilt of Kostroma proves, he faces up to five years in prison.
