Two Ukranian men were recently sentenced in the UK to four years and eight months in jail.

"The men, described by the police as the ringleaders of the plot, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to defraud; they used banking Trojans to obtain confidential information on victims' bank accounts which was then used to remove funds from those account," The H Security reports.

"One of the men, Yevhen Kullibaba, was based in the Ukraine and organised the obtaining of the information and identification of accounts to be attacked; the other man, Yurly Konovolenko, then carried out those instructions in the UK," the article states.
