Police have served charges to a hacker who developed one of the largest phishing services in the world. Financial institutions in 11 countries were affected by the attacks, with losses amounting to tens of millions of dollars. The press service of the National Police of Ukraine reported this.

The hacker was detained by cyber police and police during an international special operation with law enforcement officers in the United States and Australia in February this year.

“A 39-year-old resident of Ternopil region is suspected of developing a phishing package and a special Admin Dashboard for it, which targeted the web resources of more than a hundred banking institutions and their customers in Europe and Australia.
