Roman Seleznev, Russian hacker and the son of Russian MP, has been found guilty of cybercrime.

The jury court ruled that he was behind the well-organized hacking scheme that was active in 2008-2014, until his arrest by the U.S. secret service in the Maldives.

The prosecution put Seleznev as a skillful hacker who ‘orchestrated an international scheme that resulted in about $170 million in fraudulent credit card purchases’, as quoted by AP.
