Latvian man sentenced in US in hacking scheme

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Latvian man has been sentenced in Minneapolis to nearly three years in federal prison for his involvement in a hacking scheme that cost internet users millions of dollars.

Twenty-nine-year-old Peteris Sahurovs was sentenced Wednesday for conspiracy to commit wire fraud. After serving his prison term, a judge ruled that Sahurovs will be returned to Latvia.

Sahurovs was indicted in 2011 in a “scareware” scheme that targeted the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s website.
