U.S. #lawenforcement logs yet another #cybercrime victory. Yevgeny Nikulin, the 32-year-old Russian national who stole user information from over 117 million LinkedIn and Dropbox accounts in 2012, was convicted recently. He faces sentencing in late September, which could be up to 30 years in prison, in addition to any fines imposed for his thievery.

Like so many before him, Nikulin was arrested while vacationing outside of his native Russia (in the Czech Republic in 2016) and extradited to the U.S. Despite procedural delays in his trial (and cries of injustice from the Russian Foreign Ministry), U.S. Department of Justice prosecutors have now secured a conviction for Nikulin’s crimes, albeit many years after the fact.
