Second Russian Pleads Guilty in Payment-Processor Hacking

A second Russian man admitted to conspiring to steal more than 160 million credit and debit cards and other personal information by hacking Nasdaq Inc. and other companies in what the authorities have called the largest such scheme prosecuted in the U.S. The crime spree, which authorities said ran for about seven years, targeted some of the largest payment-processing companies, retailers and financial institutions around the world and resulted in more than $300 million in losses.
