Bondars is convicted for running Scan4You, a multi-engine virus scanning tool just like Google’s legitimate web service VirusTotal. Using this service, hackers were able to run their code through various mainstream antivirusesbefore launching them officially into an actual malware campaign.
“Ruslans Bondars helped malware developers attack American businesses,” said Assistant Attorney General Benczkowski. “The Department of Justice and its law enforcement partners make no distinction between service providers like Scan4You and the hackers they assist: we will hold them accountable for all of the significant harm they cause and work tirelessly to bring them to justice, wherever they may be located.”
