A man identified as a Russian hacker suspected of pursuing targets in the United States has been arrested in the Czech Republic, the police announced Tuesday evening. ... The statement said that “the man was a Russian citizen suspected of hacking attacks on targets in the United States,” and that the raid was conducted in collaboration with the F.B.I. after Interpol issued an arrest warrant for him.So this genius of a hacker, who might have reasonably assumed that American intelligence and law enforcement knew who he was, wanders into a NATO nation and gets arrested.
Note that the perp was the subject of an Interpol "red notice". Russia is a member of Interpol. If the Russian spooks are heavily into hacking, one might assume that they'd monitor the red notice list and warn their guys know not to leave the country. Which means that this guy may not be one of their pet hackers. Or he just may be as arrogant as Pharma Bro/Sis.
