Russian language cybercrime gangs have recruited up to 1,000 new ‘employees’ over the past three years, although there are only around 20 people who make up the core of the average group, according to Kaspersky Lab. The security vendor’s chief investigator, Ruslan Stoyanov, used a new report, Russian financial cybercrime: how it works, to uncover the cyber-criminals behind global attacks. He claimed that law enforcers around the world have arrested over 160 Russian-speaking cyber-criminals since 2012 from gangs of all sizes.
