GozNym Indictments

This month the US Department of Justice announced charges against 11 members of GozNym, an international cybercrime operation that stole money from bank accounts belonging to companies in the US and Europe.

US law enforcement agencies and counterparts in several other countries have 
accused the gang of infecting some 41,000 computers worldwide with malware for stealing online banking credentials and then using them to try and steal over $100 million.

Five members of the gang remain free in Russia. The other individuals are based in Georgia, Bulgaria, Moldova, and Ukraine; they are being prosecuted in their respective countries.

One individual, Krasimir Nikolov, was arrested in Bulgaria and extradited to the US in December 2016. He is accused of using stolen credentials to illegally access online banking accounts and transfer money from them to accounts held by the criminals.  Nikolov has pleaded guilty to his role in the GozNym operation and is scheduled for sentencing in Pittsburgh this August.
