Nine Iranians Charged In Massive Hacking Scheme

Published on 23 Mar 2018, 16:12
The United State Justice Department announced charges on Friday against nine Iranians. Deputy General Rod Rosenstein said the nine stole data from more than 140 U.S universities, 30 American companies, five government agencies, and also 176 universities in 21 other countries. Federal officials have said it was one of the largest state-sponsored computer hacking campaigns ever prosecuted by American authorities. The nine men charged were working for a company called the Mabna Institute. It is unlikely any of the nine men will face trial in a U.S courtroom, but they are now international fugitives, subject to arrest if they try to travel. U.S authorities put the value of the stolen data at $3.4 billion.
