Three Ukrainians have been arrested in Europe on criminal hacking charges including stealing payment card numbers, in attacks on more than 100 U.S. companies that cost businesses tens of millions of dollars, Reuters reports. In the United States alone, their group, Fin7, successfully stole more than 15 million customer card records from over 6,500 individual point-of-sale terminals at more than 3,600 separate business locations. One defendant, Fedir Hladyr, 33, has been transferred to Seattle from Dresden, where he was arrested. U. S. authorities are seeking to extradite from Spain and Poland the other two: Dmytro Fedorov, 44, and Andrii Kolpakov, 30.
