Abstract: Three senior members of a notorious Eastern European hacker group have been arrested and are facing charges, the Justice Department announced Wednesday. Dmytro Fedorov, Fedir Hladyr and Andrii Kopakov, all Ukrainian nationals, are part of the FIN7 cybercrime ring that has breached a wide range of companies in recent years, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Omni Hotels & Resorts, Whole Foods and Chipotle. DOJ said that the group hacked companies in 47 states and Washington, D.C., according to POLITICO. FIN7 hackers used spear-phishing emails and follow-up phone calls to convince their targets to open emails with malicious attachments. They then deployed their famous Carbanak malware to steal customers' payment data. They sold the stolen information on the dark web.
