Romanian Prosecutors With FBI’s Help Investigate Hacker Group

Nov. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Romanian prosecutors are investigating a group of 16 people for alleged fraud of about $25 million by hacking the information systems of different international companies.

Organized crime prosecutors already raided the houses of those involved in the group in four Romanian cities and two counties, the Department for Investigating Organized crime and Terrorism said in a statement on its website.

The group members used several firms to hack the IT systems of foreign gas stations and stores, intercepted clients’ credit cards payments and then illegally used the data, according to the prosecutors’ statement.

The Romanian prosecutors and the police received the help of the FBI for discovering the group, according to Realitatea TV, private television station.
