Sentenced to 27 years in prison for stealing 1.7 million credit cards

The 32-year-old Russian cybercriminal Roman Seleznev, known as Track2, has been sentenced to 27 years in prison by the US justice system. This is the biggest cybercrime conviction to date.

Roman Seleznev was arrested in 2014 in the Maldives Islands with a computer containing the stolen data of more than 1.7 million credit cards. He was accused of stealing more than 3,700 companies, causing losses of $ 169 million.

The Russian government considers illegal the detention of Roman in the Maldives Islands and so it has communicated it the Russian Embassy in Washington through its account of Facebook.
