The Security Service of Ukraine dismantles hacker group which stole around 30 million accounts

The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) has dismantled a group of hackers who stole the accounts of nearly 30 million people and sold them on the dark web.

The hackers deployed malware to steal login information and other sensitive data from victim systems in the European Union and Ukraine. Several hard drives containing stolen personal data, as well as computers, SIM cards, mobile phones, and flash drives, were discovered and confiscated during raids on the perpetrators’ homes in Lviv, Ukraine.

Although the number of people detained is still unknown, they are all being prosecuted on criminal accusations related to the illegal sale or dissemination of information with restricted access kept in computers and networks.
