A Russian who admitted carrying out one of the largest known cyberattacks against a U.S. bank is a “brazen and prolific” hacker who should serve as long as almost two decades in prison, U.S. prosecutors told a federal judge in advance of his sentencing.

Andrei Tyurin pleaded guilty in September 2019 to charges that he stole data on more than 80 million clients of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and other institutions as part of a scheme that netted hundreds of millions of dollars in ill-gotten gains.
