Russian group speculated to have stole 10 million dollars from Citibank

The group known as the RBN (Russian Business Network) has resurfaced for the first time since 2007 and this time maybe responsible for stealing upwards of 10 million dollars from the "Citibank" according to some reports. Russian Business Network is an elite network of hackers who write and distribute both malware and scareware. They group is also responsible for Extortion schemes and even Child Pornography. They often operate under a "veil" of secrecy using encrypted IRC channels to promote their "shady" business practices that appear legitimate. They are on the FBI most wanted list.

An English couple was arrested on similar charges earlier this month for operating a banking botnet variant known as "Win32.Zeus".They believe that the RBN could be using similar pieces of malware to steal banking data or another unknown variant of "Zeus".
