Russian National Extradited for 2014 JP Morgan Hack

Andrei Tyurin was arrested for his involvement in a hacking campaign targeting US financial institutions, financial news publishers, brokerage firm, and other companies.

Georgian officials have extradited Russian citizen Andrei Tyurin to the United States, where he will face charges related to a wide-ranging hacking campaign that targeted the US financial sector and included the 2014 breach of JP Morgan Chase. 

The Manhattan US Attorney's office announced Friday that Tyurin was arrested by authorities in the country of Georgia at the request of the United States for his participation in hacking US financial organizations, brokerage firms, financial news publishers, and other companies. From 2012 to mid-2015, the campaign stole personal information of more than 100 million customers of target organizations. The breach at JP Morgan Chase was the largest theft of customer data from any single US financial institution in history with more than 80 million people affected.

In addition to attacks targeting US financial firms, Tyurin allegedly also launched cyberattacks on US and foreign companies at the direction of Gery Shalon, one of many co-conspirators he allegedly worked with. Their other activities included illegal Internet gambling businesses and international payment processors, and collectively generated hundreds of millions of dollars in illicit earnings.

Tyurin is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit computer hacking, one count of wire fraud, four counts of computer hacking, one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud, one count of conspiracy to violate the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, and aggravated identity theft.
