Processing instead of Automated Data Processing)
June 12 Federal prosecutors in New Jersey on
Wednesday announced criminal charges against eight people
accused of trying to steal at least $15 million from U.S.
customers in an international cybercrime scheme targeting
accounts at financial institutions and government agencies.
U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said four of the defendants have
been arrested, two are being pursued by law enforcement, and the
other two, who are Ukrainian nationals, are at large.
Prosecutors said conspiring hackers gained unauthorized
access to computer networks of more than a dozen entities
including Automatic Data Processing Inc, Citigroup Inc
, JPMorgan Chase & Co, TD Ameritrade Holding Corp
and the U.S. Department of Defense.
