Finland Extradites Russian Computer Fraud Suspect To U.S.

Remember the guys that were behind the Citadel and Dridex malware that were arrested last year in Finland? Well, it looks like one of the alleged masterminds is being extradited to the U.S. to stand trial.

Finland said on Friday it had decided to extradite Russian citizen Maxim Senakh, accused of computer fraud and abuse, to the United States for trial. The Nordic country detained Senakh in August at the request of U.S. federal authorities, in a move which Russia called illegal. Senakh has been accused in the state of Minnesota of infecting computer servers with malware, resulting in criminal gains worth millions of dollars.
