Aleksandr Grichishkin, 34, offered technology infrastructure services, including IP addresses, servers, and domains, for cybercriminals to create botnets, infect targeted organizations with malware, and steal banking credentials. His organization supported cybercriminals who targeted the US organizations in cyberattack campaigns between 2009 and 2015.

Among the rogue's gallery of malware hosted on the systems:  Zeus, SpyEye, Citadel, and the Blackhole Exploit Kit. Two of Grichishkin’s co-conspirators already had been sentenced to prison: Pavel Stassi, 30, of Estonia (24 months), and Aleksandr Skorodumov, 33, of Lithuania, (48 months).
