Lithuanian hacker stole $ 100 million

The FBI accused the Lithuanian hacker of leading a criminal group, which was blamed on two US technology companies. Criminaw exploiter, phishing technology, stole $ 100 million.

Phishing is the most common technique used by cybercriminals in recent years, and it was used by Lithuanian citizen Evaldas Rimasauskas, whom the FBI accuses of stealing $ 100 million from two US technology companies. Their names have not been disclosed.

The scheme of action of the offender, which carried out its activity in the years 2013-2015, was quite simple. Rimasauskas has set up a fake company in Lithuania named after a well-known Asian computer manufacturer. He then used the company to dupe the victim into stealing the victim’s money from sending millions of dollars to bank accounts in Lithuania and Cyprus. As soon as the money got there, it quickly melted across the banks around the world (Hong Kong, Hungary, Slovakia) and was unattainable.
