A 36-year-old Ukrainian citizen was arrested this week for allegedly selling the personal data of over 300 million people to Russia, the Ukrainian cyber police said in a statement. The man used the messaging app Telegram to market the stolen information,which included passport data, taxpayer numbers, birth certificates, driver’s licenses, and bank account data belonging to citizens of Ukraine and various European countries. He would sell access to the data for anywhere between $500 and $2,000, depending on the amount and type of information desired. The cyber police said the man sold the data to Russian citizens for rubles — a banned currency in Ukraine. When the police arrived to search the suspect’s house in Netishyn — a town of 36,000 people in western Ukraine — he attempted to resist and injured an officer, the cyber police said . The officers confiscated several mobile phones and about 30 hard drives from the residence, as well as SIM cards, computer equipment, and server gear. Police said they are also investigating databases with restricted access that were operated by the suspect. The man faces charges for creating software with malicious intent, unlawfully accessing information stored in computer networks, and using violence against a law enforcement officer.
