A Russian citizen was arrested in the United States
A Los Angeles federal court arrested Russian citizen Yegor Kryuchkov on charges of conspiring to commit cybercrime. This was reported by the press service of the US Department of Justice.
“A Russian citizen was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to introduce a malicious program into the computer network of a company from Nevada,” the statement said.
According to the agency, the 27-year-old Kryuchkov tried to bribe an employee of an unnamed American company
based in Nevada from July 15 to August 22 this year. The statement claims that the Russian offered him $ 1 million for participating in the implementation of the fraudulent scheme.
The Ministry of Justice reported that Kryuchkov allegedly planned to load malicious software (software) into the computer system of this company. This, the message says, would allow him and his associates to gain unhindered access to company data.
Last week, Kryuchkov was contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), after which he left the city of Reno (Nevada) and went to Los Angeles with the aim of leaving the United States. The Russian, according to the department, turned to his friend to buy him a plane ticket.
Kryuchkov was detained in Los Angeles on August 22, after which he appeared before the District Court for the Central District of California. As noted by the Ministry of Justice, the Russian entered the United States on a tourist visa.
The Russian Embassy in the United States reported that diplomats are aware of Kryuchkov’s arrest. “In the near future, we will contact the Russian to clarify the essence of the problem. We will provide him with the necessary consular and legal assistance, ”the diplomatic mission said.
