Russian MP’s son faces trial in US over $170 million hacking scheme

If you’ve been meaning to catch up with the case against Roman Seleznev, a Times of Malta report by Martha Bellisle should help. Seleznev’s trial begins next week, and

prosecutors plan to lay out evidence that they say will prove Roman Seleznev hacked into US businesses, mostly pizza restaurants in Washington state, and stole credit card information.

They claim he made millions by selling that data on underground internet forums.

Some of the victim entities include Red Pepper Pizza, Mad Pizza, ZPizza, Grand Central Bakery, Village Pizza, and Casa Mia.
