The son of the Russian mayor was a member of the most dangerous hacker group in the world

Recently, the United States and Great Britain reported the discovery of the most dangerous hacker group in the world – Evil Corp. One of its participants was Andrei Kovalsky, the son of the former mayor of Khimki, Vladimir Strelchenko.

The head of the Evil Corp group is Maxim Yakubets. The United States believes that Evil Corp is covered by the authorities of the Russian Federation and the FSB, for which new sanctions were imposed. Yakubets himself drives around Moscow in the Lamborghini Huracan supercar with the thief number plate. The US State Department has announced a reward for helping to capture Yakubets in the amount of $ 5 million.
In fact, the guys just created a public VK.

Evil Corp is headed by 32-year-old Muscovite Maxim Yakubets, who uses the online nickname Aqua. He is accused of organizing international computer hacker attacks and banking fraud from May 2009 to the present.

On December 5, another 12 Russians were added to the US sanctions list. The American authorities associate all the names with the hacker group Evil Corp. The reason for the sanctions is the spread of Dridex malware, through which hackers managed to steal more than $ 100 million, as well as collect customer data from hundreds of banks and financial institutions in more than 40 countries.
