FBI Offers A 3 Million Dollars Reward for Russian Cyber Criminal


The U.S. State Department, the Department of Justice, and the FBI are offering a reward of up to $3 million for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev, currently one of the FBI's most wanted - and most prolific - cyber criminals.

Bogachev, thought to be at large in Russia, has been under indictment in the United States in connection with his alleged role as administrator of the GameOver Zeus botnet, believed to be responsible for the theft of more than $100 million from businesses and consumers in the U.S. and around the world. GameOver Zeus was an extremely sophisticated type of malware designed specifically to steal banking and other credentials from the computers it infected by either secretly logging keystrokes for passwords or creating false webpages where victims would unwittingly enter banking information and passwords.

And to cause further damage, the malware had the capability to recruit an individual?s compromised computer into a botnet, a network of computers acting as robots used by cyber criminals for other criminal purposes.

According to FBI Assistant Director Joseph Demarest, "This was a worldwide infection, but it also had law enforcement worldwide working to combat it and bring to justice the criminal organization behind it." In addition, he thanked private sector partners who played a role during the investigation and in reducing the number of computer infections.

Anyone with information on Bogachev is asked to contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324) or the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate, or submit an online tip to the Bureau.
