Today’s #GoodGuysPrevail Update…

Posted by Johnny Lee on November 5, 2020

Late last week, the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Secret Service secured the eigToday’s #GoodGuysPrevail Updateht-year conviction for a Russian national involved in a decade-long scheme to compromise computer devices, to broker in stolen #PII and banking credentials, and to defraud individuals at scale.

With calculated losses in excess of $100M USD, this conviction marks another example of the lengths that U.S. federal law enforcement will go to bring to justice criminal actors who victimize American citizens.

Today’s #GoodGuysPrevail Update…

Posted by Johnny Lee on October 15, 2020

The U.S. Department of Justice seized control of 92 domains purporting to be news outlets — which, in reality, were propaganda and disinformation outlets for Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). These sites violate existing #sanction regimes and tie back to a group designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the United States Government.

Four of these sites targeted U.S. news audiences directly, and the remaining (88) domains “targeted audiences in Western Europe, the Middle East, and South East Asia”. The #investigation was initiated via intelligence received from Google, was led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and was supported by research provided by Google, Facebook, and Twitter.

Today’s #GoodGuysPrevail Update: The United States Attorneys’​ Offices recently seized a website promoting #sextrafficking and indicted its owner.

The #indictment was announced by United States Attorney Erin Nealy Cox last week. The announcement details an action by the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Secret Service, and U.S. Department of Homeland Security that shuttered the successor to the Backpage website, which similarly made the owners “millions [by] facilitating the online exploitation of women and children.”

I will admit that I needed to read this headline twice, as my brain initially recorded “investigators” (rather than 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙜𝙖𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙨). Now that my breathing has returned to normal, I’m able to better understand the import of this U.S. Department of Justice update.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) this week arrested a Russian national believed to be the animating force behind the Deer[.]io criminal marketplace. The site is believed to have operated over 24,000 “shops” that sell hacked accounts and stolen user credentials. This is a blow to the criminal underworld, and it should be lauded accordingly. Kudos on the diligent investigative work the led to this arrest!
