The Federal District Court for the Northern District of Ohio announced lengthy U.S. prison sentences for two Romanian nationals for their roles in infecting more than 400,000 computers with malware in order to steal and resell data resulting in financial losses of about $4 million.  Bogdan Nicolescu and Radu Miclaus – both operating as part of the “Bayrob Group” – received prison sentences of 20 years, and 18 years, respectively.  The two Romanians were convicted by a Federal jury in April.
