Russian Pleads Not Guilty to U.S. Data Breach

A Russian accused of helping mastermind the largest international data breach ever prosecuted in the United States pleaded not guilty, following his extradition from the Netherlands, the U.S. Department of Justice said. Vladimir Drinkman, 34, was accused of conspiring with at least four other men to install "sniffers" to comb through computer networks of financial companies, payment processors and retailers around the world, and then to store and eventually sell data they collected.
