Deer.io takedown: Russian citizen jailed for selling stolen private data of US citizens online
A Russian citizen has become jailed for world market darknet (hop over to this website – http://www.lecalabrie.org/forums/users/rhecalvin475489/) 30 months for his role in selling stolen charge card information and various data helpful to fuel further criminal activity.
Kirill Victorovich Firsov, 30, from Moscow, acted because the administrator of an internet site . that provided stolen private data along with services to be played with for cybercrime, a US Department of Justice release states.
One-stop cybercrime platform
As previously reported by The Daily Swig, the now-defunct website – Deer.io – hosted about 2,000 illicit internet retailers and made approximately $17 million during its seven-year operation.
It sold information including gamer account logins, as well as sensitive information of US citizens not on a names, current addresses, phone numbers, possibly at times Social Security numbers.
Deer.io was launched around October 2013 and was turned off following Firsov’s arrest in March 2020 after an operation during which the FBI purchased 1,100 gamer accounts plus the personal information for more than 3,600 Americans.
The prosecutor asserted that Firsov knew deer.io was selling stolen and counterfeit accounts because he built the platform.
“Also, deer.io was easily searchable, so anyone – including Firsov – could search prestashop for stolen US accounts and information,” the discharge reads.
“Though it sold stolen accounts, deer.io had not been cloaked in secrecy and required no special password for access, because everything was use up all your Russia, and American police officers could gain no foothold.”
‘Sending a message’
“The FBI will pursue cybercriminals globally,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge, Suzanne Turner.
“Today’s sentence sends a communication – conducting criminal activity external the United States does not necessarily mean you will be out of reach.
“The FBI will identify and pursue criminal actors inside the cyber-sphere, no matter where they operate, and work to bring them to justice inside a United States court.”
