Two Russian nationals, Maksim Yakubets, of Moscow, and Igor Turashev, of Yoshkar-Ola, have been accused of stealing about $70 million from banks using the largest piece of malware ever. U.S. and British law enforcement officials have announced a $5 million reward for information that leads to Yakubets' capture. Yakubets was the "leader of a criminal cyber gang," who had been involved in cybercrime for the past decade.
