Russian-speaking Hackers MoneyTaker (MT) Rob the Banks Around the World
December 24, 2017 01:05


The experts have started talking about the group of Russian-speaking hackers MoneyTaker (MT), robbing the banks around the world.

"MoneyTaker has been working since 2016 and during this time managed to commit about 20 attacks mainly on banks in Russia, the United States and Great Britain," the newspapers write. MoneyTaker was referred to the Russian hackers by an international company for the prevention and investigation of cybercrimes, Group-IB, as it emerged during the investigation that they used servers in Russia.

"There are other signs indicating that one or more MT members are Russian speakers, but we do not disclose them, as we continue to work on investigating the incidents," the Group-IB explained. MT hackers install the legitimate tools on the servers used by banks to perform penetration tests.

However, the server of criminals has a fundamental difference: it does not seek an attack, but manages it. It is noted that malefactors from MT are not exchanged for trifles, they are also patient and always wait for a convenient moment, even if they have already managed to penetrate the system.
