American Hacker Arrested For 2014 JP Morgan Chase Breach

Joshua Aaron and his two accomplices are charged with massive hacking of US financial organizations, securities fraud and money laundering.

Joshua Samuel Aaron, one of three men indicted for allegedly masterminding the massive 2014 JP Morgan Chase breach and a variety of other criminal enterprises, was arrested by US authorities at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York yesterday.

Aaron, along with Israeli citizen Gery Shalon, has been charged with computer hacking, securities fraud, wire fraud, identity theft, and conspiracies to commit these crimes.

According to a US Department of Justice (DoJ) release, Aaron, who is a US citizen living in Moscow, and Shalon, perpetrated massive computer hacking crimes against US financial organizations, brokerage firms, and financial news publishers. The two allegedly carried out the largest theft of customer data from an American financial company in history.

Along with co-defendant Ziv Orenstein, the three were also involved in a multi-million dollar stock manipulation plot, says the DoJ release.

Charges against the three men were announced in November 2015. Shalon and Orenstein were arrested in Israel last year and extradited to the US in June 2016.

Hi
Don't people know enough about the internet and how to manipulate technology that they should be smart enough not to attempt finance fraud online? There is always a trail! And if you think you're smart enough to have covered it, there's always someone smarter than you who can sniff you out anyway! Why bother!
