這是一家名叫“邪惡”的公司,據說已經從美國銀行偷走1億美元

Chris Morris 2019年12月10日

該公司使用名為“Dridex”的惡意軟件,可以規避殺毒軟件,感染電腦,并盜取登錄信息,然后偷盜賬戶的錢轉至離岸銀行。

美國司法部和國務院提起了兩件針對數位俄羅斯公民的公訴案,稱他們領導的黑客集團需對全球范圍內銀行超過1億美元的盜竊案負責。

這個黑客集團被稱為“邪惡公司”(Evil Corp.),它們使用名為“Dridex”的惡意軟件,可以規避殺毒軟件,感染電腦,并盜取登錄信息,然后偷盜賬戶的錢轉至離岸銀行。

“邪惡公司”的名字取自美國電視秀節目《機器人先生》(Mr. Robot),“業務由一群位于俄羅斯莫斯科的人運營,他們有著多年的經驗,相互信任。”美國財政部在一份媒體聲明中說。

據報道,該集團使用Dridex病毒,通過誘騙郵件方式進行傳播,針對的目標是超過40個國家的金融機構。

邪惡公司的兩位成員,被指控刑事犯罪——領頭人是32歲的馬克西姆·V·雅庫伯茲,綽號“水”,另一位是38歲的伊格·圖拉舍夫,他協助開發惡意病毒。

不過主要逮捕目標還是雅庫伯茲,美國國務院提供了一筆高達500萬美元的賞金,用于獎勵能夠提供信息協助抓獲或使其認罪的人。這是針對網絡犯罪的最大一筆賞金。

“馬克西姆·雅庫伯茲和伊格·圖拉舍夫領導著這個世界上最復雜的跨國網絡犯罪辛迪加已經超過10年。”賓西法尼亞州西區律師斯科特·W·布拉迪在一份聲明中說。“這些網絡犯罪分子在西賓夕法尼亞以及全球范圍內,發起了我們所遇見過的最廣泛的一次針對個人和公司的惡意軟件攻擊。”

美國財政部補充說,雅庫伯茲“還為俄羅斯政府的惡意網絡攻擊企圖提供直接的協助,顯示出俄羅斯政府征用了網絡犯罪分子用于其惡毒的目的。”(財富中文網)

The U.S. Departments of Justice and State have unveiled a pair of indictments against Russian nationals they say led a hacker group responsible for stealing more than $100 million from banks around the world.

That hacker group, known as “Evil Corp.” used a malware called “Dridex,” which circumvented antivirus software, infecting computers and stealing login credentials, before emptying accounts and moving the money to offshore banks.

Evil Corp., a name taken from the show USA Network show Mr. Robot, “operates as a business run by a group of individuals based in Moscow, Russia, who have years of experience and well-developed, trusted relationships with each other,” said the Treasury Department in a press release.

The group reportedly used the Dridex virus, which is distributed via phishing email campaigns, against financial institutions in over 40 countries.

Two members of Evil Corp. have been hit with criminal violations—the leader, 32-year-old Maksim V. Yakubets, aka “aqua,” and 38-year-old Igor Turashev, who helped develop the malware virus.

Yakubets is the main target, though. The State Department is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information that leads to his capture or conviction. That’s the largest reward ever offered for a cybercriminal.

“For over a decade, Maksim Yakubets and Igor Turashev led one of the most sophisticated transnational cybercrime syndicates in the world,” said U.S. Attorney Scott W. Brady for the Western District of Pennsylvania in a statement. “These cybercriminals targeted individuals and companies in western Pennsylvania and across the globe in one of the most widespread malware campaigns we have ever encountered.”

The Treasury Department added that Yakubets “also provides direct assistance to the Russian government’s malicious cyber efforts, highlighting the Russian government’s enlistment of cybercriminals for its own malicious purposes.”
