Alleged mastermind behind GozNym gang apprehended by FBI

FBI and Europol confirm the man who was allegedly behind the GozNym cybercrime crew has been apprehended and charged, Forbes writes. The Eastern European gang attempted stealing as much as $100 million from 44,000 computers. It remains uncertain how much the purported cybercriminals managed to steal.

While the FBI is still looking for five Russians connected to the crime, law enforcement apprehended Alexander Konovolov and his alleged accomplice, Marat Kazandjian. The men are being prosecuted in Georgia. An indictment charging ten men accused of being part of GozNym crew has been unsealed by the U.S.; according to the indictment, Konovolov was responsible for assembling the crew while Kazandjian presided over the technical part of the operations.
