Kaspersky Lab Assists in Russia’s Largest Cybercriminal Arrest: The Hackers Who Stole $45 Million

Kaspersky Lab experts and Sberbank, one of Russia’s largest banks, worked closely with Russian Law Enforcement Agencies in an investigation into the Lurk gang that has now resulted in the arrest of 50 people. Those detained are suspected of involvement in the creation of infected computers networks that resulted in the theft of more than 45 million dollars (3 billion rubles) from banks, other financial institutions and businesses since 2011. This is the largest ever arrest of hackers to have taken place in Russia.
