‘Evil Corp’: Russian hackers indicted in the US

Two Russian hackers are being accused of running a phishing campaign to steal millions in more than 40 countries.

    The United States has charged two Russians for allegedly running a global hacking group called "Evil Corp" from their basements.

    Indictments against Igor Turashev and Maksim Yakubets were issued on Thursday, accusing them of using malware to steal millions of dollars.

    A $5m bounty has been offered for information leading to Yakubet's arrest and prosecution - the largest reward ever offered for a cybercriminal.
