Russian Extradited to US to Face Cyber Crimes Charges

Share post:

Vladimir Dunaev, a 38-year-old Russian national and member of a cybercriminal organization, appeared Thursday in U.S. federal court.

The appearance follows his extradition from South Korea to Ohio on October 20 to face his role in a cybercriminal organization that used a computer banking trojan and a ransomware suite called “Trickbot.”

Dunaev is charged with conspiracy to commit wire and bank fraud, conspiracy to launder money and multiple counts of wire fraud, bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Another look at the indictment showed that Dunaev and others stole money, confidential information and damaged computer systems from unsuspecting victims, including individuals, financial institutions, school districts, utilities, government agencies and private companies, between November 2015 and August 2020.

They were able to carry out these activities with stolen access data.
