Summary
A division head of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) was sentenced to nine years in a penal colony for accepting a $1.7 million bribe to overlook the activities of a cybercrime group involved in hacking thousands of e-commerce sites, selling stolen payment card details online. Russian authorities dismantled this operation in 2022, arresting six members and seizing several carding shops, including Trump’s Dumps, which promised to "make credit card fraud great again." The IT firm Get-net LLC, linked to one of the arrested and leased services to the FSB, was implicated in the registration of the seized domains. Following an investigation that revealed the FSB head’s promise to transfer and potentially dismiss the hackers' case—a promise he couldn't fulfill—the case unraveled, leading to his arrest alongside the seizure of significant assets. The article also touches on historical attacks by these cybercriminals exploiting vulnerabilities in e-commerce platforms to steal and sell credit card information.
