Index – Abroad – The notorious Russian hacker has been arrested

MTI reports that one of the most famous Russian hackers has been deported from the United States. Referring to information from the Russian Interior Ministry, the Russian news agency TASZSZ reported that one of the most famous Russian hackers, Alexei Burkov, was arrested at one of Moscow’s airports after He was deported from the United States.

In June, a US court sentenced Burkov to nine years in prison for crimes in cyberspace. The reason for the ruling was that he was running two websites that wanted to commit various crimes.

Alexei Burkov (CardPlanet) can unilaterally trade stolen credit card information, while DirectConnection runs a club specifically for cybercriminals. On this interface, hackers can give and take malware and stolen identities, accept requests and perform money laundering services. Club membership requires native-level Russian proficiency, a recommendation from three club members, and a $5,000 deposit.

Similar steps are rarely taken because Russia and the United States have not concluded an extradition agreement with each other.

Borkov was arrested during a visit to Israel in December 2015 at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv and extradited to the United States in November 2019. Last January, he pleaded guilty to fraud, identity theft, computer hacking and money laundering.

Russian internal affairs spokeswoman Irina Volk said the police arrested the intruder at Sheremetyevo International Airport. He pointed out that the man was accused of being absent in Russia and tried to arrest him through Interpol.
