Two Hackers Plead Guilty in $15 Million Cybercrime Operation

Two American hackers have admitted to have stolen some $15 million, before a New Jersey court, authorities say. Robert Dubuc, 40, of Malden, Massachusetts, and Oleg Pidtergerya, 49, of Brooklyn, New York, pleaded guilty to wire fraud conspiracy, conspiracy to commit access device fraud and identity theft before U.S. District Judge Peter Sheridan in Trenton federal court. 

U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman in a statement said that both the men had been involved in a campaign to “cash out” bank accounts and pre-paid debit cards opened in the names of others. 

He said The hackers tapped into accounts in 2012 and 2013 at global financial businesses and institutions – Citibank N.A., JP Morgan Chase Bank N.A., PayPal, TD Ameritrade, the U.S. Department of Defense, TIAA-CREF and others – and diverted money to accounts and debit cards they controlled, Fishman said. They then employed “cash out” operations, using people who would withdraw the stolen funds at ATMs and with fraudulent purchases in New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, Georgia and elsewhere. 

Wire fraud conspiracy carries a potential sentence of 20 years in prison, while the other two charges each carry the possibility of five years in prison, as well as heavy fines. 

Sentencing was scheduled for July 7 for Pidtergerya and July 8 for Dubuc. The investigation was carried out by US Federal Agencies.

Chaney apologized to his alleged victims in an interview conducted shortly after his indictment in October:“I know what I did was probably the worst invasion of privacy someone could experience. … I’m not trying to escape what I did. It was wrong. And I have to just face that and go forward.” He claimed he did not leak nude photos of Johansson online. (Associated Press)

Celebrity hacker to plead guilty in US court deal

LOS ANGELES, March 22, 2012 (AFP) – A computer hacker will plead guilty to breaking into the email accounts of stars including Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, his lawyer said Thursday, ahead of a court hearing on the proposed deal.

Florida hacker Christopher Chaney, 35, will admit the charges in court in Los Angeles next Monday, his lawyer Christopher Chestnut told AFP, giving no further details.

Chaney could be jailed for up to 60 years, media reports say, although that is much less than the 121 years he could face if convicted on all 26 indictments he has been charged with.

His arrest by FBI agents last October grew out of an 11-month investigation into the hacking of over 50 entertainment celebrities, including Johansson, Kunis and Christina Aguilera.

The indictments against him include accessing and damaging computers, wire tapping and identify theft. He was freed on bail in Jacksonville, Florida, where he lives, pending the LA court case.

Aguilera’s computer was hacked in December 2010, when racy photos of her also hit the Internet. Kunis’s cell phone was hacked in September that year with photos of her, including one in a bathtub, spread online.

Hacked pictures of Johansson, star of “The Horse Whisperer” and “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” showed her in a state of undress in a home setting.

The FBI alleges that Chaney used open-source, public information to try to guess a celebrity’s email password, and then would breach the account.

He then allegedly communicated directly with contacts found in the hacked email account’s address list and searched the account for photos, information and other data.

To control the account, Chaney is alleged to have altered the email’s account settings to go to a separate, unrelated e-mail address that he controlled.

After gaining complete access to the hacked account, Chaney then used the contact list to “harvest” new targets, according to the FBI.
