Arrest Sheds Light on World of Russian Hackers

Vladislav A. Horohorin, known as "BadB," is expected to appear soon before a French court that will decide on his potential extradition to the United States, where he could face up to 12 years in prison and a fine of $500,000 if he is convicted on charges of fraud and identity theft. For at least nine months, however, he lived openly in Moscow as one of the world’s most wanted computer criminals.
