Cybercrime rampant in Russia

The Kremlin is cracking down on cybercrime, which has become increasingly difficult to contain.

    What are often seen as childish pranks are in fact part of a dangerous growing trend especially among today's young talented techies.

    Cybercrime is becoming more and more common in Russia, with a growing number of technology graduates getting involved.
