Moscow court issued an arrest warrant for the co-founder of hacker group "Humpty Dumpty"

Let’s reminder that the process of the scandalous case of the hacker group “Humpty Dumpty” has been going on for several years. The investigation found that hackers broke into the mailboxes of officials and businessmen and then extorted money from them for non-proliferation of data.

This week the Court of Moscow arrested in absentia and declared in the international search of one of the founders of the hacker group “Humpty Dumpty” Alexander Glazastikow.

According to Media reports, the man left Russia and is in the Baltic States, or rather in Estonia, where he sought asylum.

In August 2018, another founder of “Humpty Dumpty” Vladimir Anikeev was released. The court sentenced him to two years in prison, but half of the term Anikeev served in the pre-trial detention centre.

An interesting fact is that the Press Secretary of the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev Natalia Timakova probably became one of the victims of the group.

Anikeev said that the correspondence of Timakova, consisting of 500 messages, dated 2004-2015 years, was bought within a week by the unknown for 150 bitcoins (at that time 38 000 $).

According to Alexander Glazastikow, from 2014 the group “Humpty Dumpty” has earned about two million dollars.
