Russian national Andrei Tyurin will serve 12 years in prison for his role in a global hacking campaign that pilfered personal information from more than 80 million JP Morgan Chase customers in the largest-ever breach of a financial institution in the US.
Tyurin from 2012 to 2015 hacked multiple financial institutions, brokerages, and financial news publications, including JP Morgan, E*Trade, Scottrade, and The Wall Street Journal, stealing personal data of more than 100 million customers of those organizations — all from his home in Moscow. He worked with co-conspirators including Gery Shalon, who together also perpetrated securities fraud and other nefarious activity.
According to the US Secret Service, Tyurin made some $19 million from his crimes. He was extradited from the nation of Georgia in September 2018 and has been in US custody since then.
