Billion Dollar Cyber Crime Chief Finally Caught

by John Lister on March, 29 2018 at 01:03PM EDT

A man has been arrested for allegedly stealing more than a billion dollars in cyber attacks. The tactics were so outlandish, they almost sounded like the words used by Richard Pryor's character in Superman III.

The unnamed man was arrested in Spain after an investigation that involved officials from six countries on three continents plus private cyber security firms. The man is alleged to have led a gang that attacked more than 100 banks and other financial institutions around the world.

The gang has been operating for at least three years using three forms of malware, known as Anunak, Carbanak and Cobalt Strike. The last of these was customized from legitimate software designed to test security on computer networks.

Got too greedy. Could have retired on a beach somewhere for life. Not that I condone any of the theft.
